I have a card comparison for you today.  I was trying to come up with a card to make for a swap I was in at Convention.  The first one is very similar in color to one I saw online someplace.  The colors are Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.  I liked it, but wanted to try something different.

 So I went to my cardstock drawers to see what I could come up with.  There was my file of Sahara Sand cardstock - so neglected and rarely used.  Seems like I usually reach for Whisper White or Very Vanilla.  So I thought, okay, if I use this as the base, what other colors should I use?

After various color tries, I settled on the combination of Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Garden Green, and Early Espresso.
I like how it turned out - and the ladies and gentlemen I swapped with all seemed to like it too!  It was a little time consuming.  Each card required at least SIX passes through the Big Shot!  (What was I thinking?)  But I think the end result was worth it.  Which one is your favorite?

Until next time...
