Colour Challenge on Heart2Heart

This is a bittersweet post for me!  It's my final challenge on the Heart2Heart Design team... my how 6 months fly by.  It's been a wonderful experience - meeting such a great and talented group of gals, getting to know many more consultants through their blogs, and it has kept me challenged to do my best work.  I won't be disappearing, though - I intend to be a player in the weekly challenges as often as possible.  This week we have a colour challenge:
I decided to use this colour palette to make a set of Thank-you cards for one of my daughter's teachers as an end of the year gift, so I put together 6 different 4"x4" cards and made a matching holder:
I went with predominantly bamboo & barn red with colonial white, and just added touches of dutch blue - mainly through accessories.  Here are some close-ups of the cards:



We have our June guest designer, Jena Devries joining us this week, so check out the blog to see what Jena and the rest of the design team have created to inspire you.  We would love to have you play along with the challenge, just be sure to use some Close To My Heart products in your creation, and link it up to the Heart2Heart blog.  You could win one of the 2 monthly prize packs, or be chosen as one of our monthly Top Ten!  Thanks to everyone for all of your lovely comments and support over the past six months, and an even bigger thank-you to Mary Vogel, who does such a wonderful job with the H2H blog :o)

Supplies used: Cardstock is Barn Red, Bamboo & Colonial White; Inks are Bamboo, Barn Red & Dutch Blue; Stamp sets are Simple Memories, Universal Backgrounds, You're Invited, Card Chatter - thanks, and Gracious Greetings; Indian Corn Blue Waxy Flax; Brads, Spiral Clip, Buttons & Gems are Summer Celebration Mini Medley; - all CTMH!

What a great little card set! I always give teachers a little gift at the end of the year too, they just do so much and really deserve a big Thank you:) I'm sure this card set was appreciated!

Love seeing this little bag again. I used to make these all the time for hostess gifts w/about 4 cards inside when I was doing gatherings. I miss doing gatherings!
