While playing one weekend with some colors I rarely use, I realized they would make a great color combination challenge.  So, several of my paper crafting friends -- Chelsea Cook, Elizabeth Carney, and Gloria Stengel -- have great examples to share with you today.  There were no rules other than using this color combination.  Here are the colors:


5" x 4 ¾" Card by Gloria

I love how Gloria not only used the colors but combined florals with plaids. Such a gorgeous effect on her card!  Her blue and orange stand out more on her card but she has the green included in the flowers.  This card is so beautiful.


4 ¼" x 5 ½" Card by Chelsea


Chelsea has all of the colors plus more on her card.  I love the baby blue elephants and the green squares.  The dots of orange are just the perfect touch, making it a precious card for any baby boy entering a family!



12" x 12" layout by Elizabeth


Elizabeth chose to highlight the orange in her layout.  I love how the grass in the photos brings in the green from our color combination.  Then look at the pop of blue behind her title.  I just love this layout!




9" x 9" Layout by Patter


For my layout, I went with the baby blue as my main color.  Then I added green embellishments and the orange was on my patterned paper.




5 ¼" x 5 ¼" Card by Patter


For my card, this BasicGrey paper was perfect. It has all of the colors there just ready for this challenge.




I enjoy these colors so much, I definitely need to try to use them more often in my creations.  I hope you will give this challenge a try too.  It's a fun one!
