Kristina's Color Challenge #15

I made this cards while watching the movie "Music and Lyrics" it's a great show if grew up in the 80's and lived all it's music. Great Fun! 
This is my card for Kristina's Color challenge. This is another color combo I have never put together. I't was not to hard. I think I have an addiction to "Crystal Effects" though. It's just that it can make paper come to life when it would otherwise just look so boring and in need of just a little some thing for a focal point.

Give this challenge a try.

Card recipe: (all Stampin'Up in less stated)
Stamps- "All in a Row"
Ink- Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, 
Card Stock- Really Rust, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip.

love what you have done with this :-)

I often make cards while watching a show and now find myself thinking back of those cards in relation to the show that was on (I have a string of "Voyager" and now "Enterprise" cards)

Very lovely Brooke!!! I truly love these colours but am a bit pushed for time right now so not sure I will get a card made for the challenge!! Thank you ever so much too for your kind comments on my blog and for wanting to give me an award - you inspire me a lot with your work! I didnt totally CASE your card as my chalked image looked dreadful LOL!!

WOW! Top Ten material for sure! I love the way you mocked the white stitching on the sheets with All In A Row, and the subtle use of Certainly Celery! Great rustic, western look!

Brooke!! Thank you so much for nominating little ole me for an award! You are so sweet!

Your card is just beautiful - I love what you have done with the colors and how you popped it out with the stickles. You are just an amazing artist and such a sweet person.

I know what you mean about making cards while watching a show - I made KW one while watching "So you think you can dance", but otherwise its been the Bachelorette, Arrested Development, Hell's Kitchen, Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty.... hmmmm - never knew I was such a TV-show-a-holic (LOL)

Hope you are well ! sending you lots of sun and fun,
