#GDP018 | Out Of My Comfort Zone

This with over at the Global Design Project, it’s a sketch. Yippee! I love sketches. It makes creating a project just that little bit easier as the design is already done for you.

 This week, I was sitting at my craft desk contemplating which stamp set and colours that I was going to use for my creation. I was stuck in a rut. I was grabbing my favourite colours and it wasn’t making me happy. I didn’t want to use them. I enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone for last week’s GDP Colour Challenge and I thought, hey, why not challenge myself again this week…? With my palette of 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! Colours to choose from, I had a great collection to pick from. 

Elegant Eggplant. Now that is a colour that I barely, if ever use. I’ll grab that as my starting point and see where we end up. 

Combined with the ever stunning ‘Timeless Love’ stamp set and some silver, I think I done a cracking job of featuring my barely used Elegant Eggplant on my card don’t you think?

Now, after completing and photographing my card, I realised that one of my all time favourite things, our silver cord trim had recently retired. Eek, I am such a differ but it’s just because I loved it so much. So I am sorry for displaying it now that it’s not available but it was too late to do anything about it. I’m sure the recipient that receives my card won’t mind. It is heading off today to a friend of mine who has recently had a stay in hospital. Hopefully my card brightens her day a little while she is recovering.

Thanks for visiting!
