First Wednesday of the month means a new challenge theme at 
Double D Challenges
and this time our theme is a color one.
Can you guess by the awesome mood board below?
I would say Teal and Red...and I am correct lol!

I have to admit this one threw me a little bit
and I was the one that created the board lol!

My card is a big 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square with the results of the design
coming to me on one of my sleepless nights.

Using basic card stocks, a cut file and a few dies, along with a
glitter scrap of paper, it came together pretty fast.

The sweet die cut, was cut from all 3 colors of the mixer
then stacked with a peek of each color showing.
The mixer is actually from a shaped card cut file, but I used just the 'toppers'
so I could have a larger card to fit my two sets of cherries on.
I have listed all products I can with links below.

Now pop on over to the Double D and look at all the pretty
red and teal projects the design team has,
they have incredible designs as always!!

Entering the following challenges:
City Crafter ... Bake It Pretty
Word Art Wednesday.... ATG
Simon Says Monday ....  Bright and Beautiful

Sometimes we get such great ideas on those sleepless nights. This one is super fun and so retro. I too had trouble with the color combo and only used the colors for my inspiration. I need to take some inspiration from my teammates.
