Ribbon of Courage Bundle for GDP105

This week’s Global Design Project color challenge will definitely take you far from Halloween and Christmas – Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango and Lemon Lime Twist are a fresh, flirty combination.  I adore the combination of these orange colors and bright green.  My card is equally as fresh and bright as these colors.  Here’s my card:

  • Ribbon of Courage Bundle.  The Ribbon of Courage bundle is such a great set for any show of support and encouragement.  The set was designed by Patty Bennett (in coordination with Stampin’ Up! designers) to celebrate Patty’s $1 million in sales and honors Patty’s mother’s battle with cancer.  The set is not limited to health issues, though.  This sweet flower and coordinating leaves work beautifully with this sentiment to offer any level of encouragement.  Ribbon of Courage, Support Ribbon Framelits, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI love how the flower and coordinating leaves layer.  Here’s a look at this bundle:

  • Peekaboo!  Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango – how in the world am I going to find a paper that incorporates both of them.  Aaaah!  The gorgeous Painted Autumn Designer Series has a gorgeous page of watercolored paper that pulls from both of these oranges.  Yay!  I built the rest of my card around this panel of paper.  Love when that happens!  Here’s a look at the other colors and patterns in Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper:Painted Autumn, Stampin' Up!, Brian King 144613
  • A Different Size.  You might not be able to tell from the picture above (or from holding the card in your hand, for that matter) that this isn’t the standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base.  To mix things up a bit, I shaved 1/4″ of the side and top of this card.  It still fits in a standard envelope, so all’s good, right?  It’s a small change, but it makes a difference.  <3

  2. Good morning Brian,
    Very pretty card. Love the color choices. So vibrant. Have a great day.

  3. Super card! And I would never have put those colors together, but I love them!! Anyone would love this card.

    • Thanks so much, Jackie! I actually picked the colors for the challenge and then wondered why I picked them when I sat down to make my card and then loved them when I started playing with them. 🙂

  4. I love the color combo and the sentiment that you chose! What a sweet, encouraging card!

  5. So pretty and the colors are perfect . I just love the Painted Autumn DSP ! You picked one of my favorite designs in the mix .
    Great card !

  6. Love this card, Brian, with the bright colors and very sweet sentiment. Enjoy your day!

  7. Often we associate are cards with the seasons, with a card like this you would enjoy receiving anytime of the year. Why, because the colors are so “cheerful” it’s brings a breath of joy and fun.

  8. fresh & sweet. i love the background paper (which I used today as well). love & hugs, m

  9. This layout is so you, Brian! All of the lovely layers, and above all, highlighting something I never noticed in a set. Today it’s the pretty flower in the Support Ribbon framelits. I must admit that sometimes I buy the set, or bundle if it’s offered, for one element! What a sweet card!

  10. These colors are fresh and fabulous…….like you!

  11. So perfect for this challenge

  12. I just made a card that used almost this exact color scheme (with the addition of Crumb Cake) and I was just telling my sister that I really liked the color scheme and wanted to use it again soon… and then 5 minutes later, I opened up your blog to see that GDP chose those exact colors for this week. It looks like I got my wish to use them again!
