Around The World On Wednesday March Blog Hop Color Challenge

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday March Blog Hop and this month we have our first Color Challenge for the year. For our Color Challenge this month we will be creating with at least 3 of the colors that our Design Team members chose as their favorite colors. The colors are: Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, Pale Papaya, Petal Pink, Rich Razzleberry and Starry Sky. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore using these beautiful colors in your creative projects. 
For this Color Challenge, I chose to create a geometric design for my card using 7 of the 9 colors - Starry Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink and Pale Papaya. I die cut hexagons from 6 of the colors using the Beautiful Shapes to create a random background design. I love how these colors work together to create a mosaic design and I added Gold accents to step up the card.

This fun card design has a modern feel to it with the geometric background. I attached the hexagon die cuts in a random pattern onto the Basic White cardstock card front. The Starry Sky cardstock card base helps make the variety of colors of hexagons really pop. For the sentiment, I stamped the solid background with Starry Sky Classic ink and then heat embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder in the center. Using the smaller label die cut, I die cut out the sentiment and then I sponged the edges with Starry Sky Classic ink using a Blending Brush. I attached the sentiment label to the center of the larger background label that I die cut from Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and then attached it to the center of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the card design, I added several Gold sequins for a touch of bling. This was a fun color challenge using these beautiful colors and I love how my finished design turned out. This is not my usual style and I loved having the opportunity to show some love to some of my old favorite products that I haven't used in a while.
