It's Thursday and that means it's time for another challenge at Pals Paper Arts! We're well into summer too and that means it's time for weddings! In honor of the wedding season, we're hosting a Wedding Theme Challenge (PPA51) this week at PPA!
QUESTION: What were your "wedding colors"? Just for fun, please leave a comment under the comments section and tell me what your colors were! If you're not married or didn't have a wedding that required you to pick colors, tell me what colors you would choose!
My wedding colors were soft yellow and peach (definitely not what I would choose today)! Cream and light green are supposed to be a "hot" color combo for weddings this year, so I paired Very Vanilla and Certainly Celery with Sahara Sand for my wedding themed card! If you follow my blog regularly, you know I love working with bright and unusual color combos! I don't consider this an unusual color combo, but I do think it's very pretty for a wedding! You might also notice that I've featured this layout before and I think it lends itself well for a wedding card. When it comes to weddings, my preference is classic and traditional (very Martha Stewart)! This card combines many beautiful but simple elements, resulting in a card that exudes understated elegance! I like how it turned out and I hope Martha would be proud!
Speaking of Martha, our own Martha Stewart is this week's Featured Artist! Click here to see Martha's and the PPA Design Team's inspiring ideas for weddings! Make your own wedding themed creation and post it at Pals Paper Arts before 12:00 Noon CST on Tuesday, July 20th! Who knows? You might just be a Pals Paper Arts Artist Pick, so get busy! Don't forget to post your wedding colors in the comment section, too!
