Combined Challenges

Keesh has done it again, another colour challenge I wasn't too sure of, but in the end I am happy with my results - so much so I have two cards! I decided right from the start I wanted the Real Red to be an accent, and the two blue shades to dominate. Then I had decided to combine the colour challenge with Beate's latest sketch challenge, but I couldn't decide which colour to use as the base, Soft Sky or Blue Bayou... so I did both and I still can't decide! Which do you like better?

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Real Red, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Boho Backgrounds

Wow Carol!!! I really like both of them...but I think that the one with the Blue Bayou base is visually stronger...if that makes sense?

Hi Carol
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment :)
I love both of your cards, but the one with the Blue Bayou base would be my favourite. It kind of jumps out at you a bit more than the other and the real red as an accent looks fantastic. Great job on both cards.

Great cards, Carol! My favorite is the Blue Bayou card as well.
Thanks for playing!
Hugs and smiles
