Texty color challenge

Hi everyone! I am so excited that I've had so much time to make cards this week! I guess we had so much company these past 2 weeks that the house is still clean and that gives me some extra time to craft! Yay!

I had been eying the CAS-ual Fridays challenge for a few days now. I wanted to incorporate some text onto my card but was still playing around with how I wanted to do it. Then, today, I stumbled on a color challenge website called CR84FN and it immediately sparked what I would do for my card. Here are the 2 badges from the challenge sites.
Here's my card. I LOVE the red, yellow, and white challenge...the only way I strayed a bit was that I added some script to the flowers in brown (we were allowed a neutral). Other than that, I played with the colors. I knew that I'd use my embossing folder that has script writing for the text part of the challenge. I started with the script panel and layered that on red cardstock that I inked in barn door red distress ink. I then took 3 white paper flowers and inked 2 in the barn door red and one in the mustard seed distress ink color. I then used the old letter stamp from Hero Arts (LOVE this stamp!) and used that to add some more texture to the card. I added buttons and twine and then some pearls along the sides to frame the panel. The sentiment is from Hampton Arts (from Michaels) and I stamped it in the same red distress ink as the flowers. Easy card--but I love how vibrant it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by--and for the sweet comments that always make me smile! Hope everyone is having a good week so far!
