Color Challenge #39

It's time for another challenge from Kristina! Yay! My favorite time of the week! Super busy week for me, getting my baby ready for the start of school next week. I cant believe she is already off to school, it sure does seem like only yesterday I was trying to get her to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time. Anyway, in between labeling and contacting books, I have found time to create this super fun, bright card with these oh, so tricky colors - basic black, whisper white, green galore, so saffron & real red.
I don't think I have ever used the green galore color, let alone used it as the base of a card. It was fun to try and go outside of the box for this one. I created the words on my computer, and matted onto matching card stock, luck would have it that I had some so saffron brads and real red ribbon to add, just to finish it off and break up the white a little. I think that this will make a fun card to give to a boy, I have loads of fairies, flowers and butterflies for little girls, but not much for little boys. Oh, and I just had an idea to add crystal effects to the traffic lights to make them all shiny, TFL, hope you have a great day:)

Fun card! Yes, a boy would love it!! Glad you were able to use the colors and got out of your comfort zone. I love bright colors so this was great for me but give me some mellow ones together and I'd be struggling.
