KA–POW a Brand.New.Terrific.Challenge.

The Ultimate Artistic Avenger, aka Carrie Gaskin, one of my very favorite paper artists and sister Stampin’ Up! demonstrator has started a new challenge for her stamping followers.  The KA-POW challenge will be issued every other Tuesday for now and you can read more right here.

KA-POW Kreative Challenge # 1 is a very cool color challenge.  Here are the challenge colors:

Kapow-Kreative-Challenge-KKC011-300x199 - colors

And, here’s my card using an awesome new stamp set from the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog.  Creative Elements has so many great images- the cards practically make themselves!  I used all the colors above plus some Naturals White, a few Basic Rhinestones and Pearls, the Perfect Polka Dots textured embossing folder and the oval from the new Designer Frames folder duo.  And, I love, love this card.  I did a lot of distressing in honor of Carrie’s style, and rolled a few corners.  I hope it makes her smile a bit.  (Don’t you love these little rolled flowers?  They are too easy…I will tell you how next time.)

I will be back soon with news about Isabella! and our marvelous Alaskan cruise.

WOW - Diane this is just stunning! I love every little detail you've added from the cut out behind the sentiment, the frame, the rolled flowers and all that distressing! I'm so glad you've played along at KKC for my first week!

This is amazing! I really enjoy how you saw a "pretty" card using these colours when I couldn't get past bright colours for a kid card :) I love every aspect of your card - lots of details. Thanks for sharing and playing along with the challenge.
