Color My Week!

Hello there my friends.
This is such a crazy life... We have to do so many things that keep us busy and give us a lot of stress!!!  But it's fun, isn't it?  What if we didn't have much to do?  We'd probably be complaining as well...  So I decided this week is going to be great!  I decided to color my week with hope, optimism and love...  Attitude is everything and I think this one will help me to get to Friday sooner...:)
How about you?

I know a very talented lady called Jessica and since day one I've seen her work, I've told her she's extraterrestrial.  She really is... it's like she touches any paper and makes it beautiful.  Seriously, she has such a particular style you just have to love.  So, Jessica has her own blog you can access clicking her name at the beginning of this paragraph, but now she is also part of a new wonderful blog called The Creative Paper Trade.  It's so cool... Ladies here are so talented that I feel this blog will be famous pretty soon.  I'm already a follower.

And they have a challenge going on.

You have to make a project with these colors.  And I wish I had time to participate in all challenges I like... but I don't... this means getting to bed very late and get very tired during the week... but isn't this color combination great?  So I had to participate!

I made a card using some twine, border punch, stamps, chalk ink, patterned paper, brads, glossy accents, bling and card-stock.  

I tried to be as faithful as possible to the color combo proposed in the challenge... And this is what I came up with...

The bird is part of the patterned paper... I just added glossy accents and a bling (eye) to make it stand out.

Here's and enhanced photo.  Colors look stronger because of the contrast so you can notice the depth and layers.

Hope you like my Monday project... and that it was worth it to lose some sleep... hahahahaha...  Thanks for your comments.  I love them all.

See you soon.

Just so you know, I didn't need an enhanced photo to appreciate the soft pretty layers you have going lovely just as they are! Love the little birdie and that sweet sentiment, too!! Thanks again for joining in on our first challenge, and for adding to the inspiration!!!
