CR84FN Color Challenge

I want to start off by saying that this is/was my VERY FIRST challenge EVER! I googled "color challenges" and fell in love with the color combo over at CR84FN!

Isn't is gorgeous?!? I just had to give it a try...so here goes...
(I'd like to apologize in advance for the photos, they were taken on my iPhone)

I just adore it! I'm a huge fan of clean and simple cards so this fit the bill perfectly.
As a matter of fact, I felt so good about how this one came out, that I decided to give it another shot...

I made both of these cards using the "You make me smile" sentiment from the Papertrey Ink  Signature Greetings stamp set. Both cards also used punches from EK Success that I got at JoAnn Fabric this past weekend. (By the way, they're having a wonderful sale during March for National Craft Month)

I must say that I'm really proud of my take on my first color challenge and I totally look forward to taking on many more of them! Here's one last look at my two beauties...Hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as I enjoyed making them!
