Tuesday color challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone! What a gorgeous day it is here today! It is about 70 degrees and sunny! I am definitely out of my funk! I worked today until one and then came home to work on the color challenge of the day. I also met with our decorators and we are very very very very close to ordering everything. Then we will have to wait for three months for it to come. I will post before and after pictures. We have been working on this since January! It will be nice to get it done and I am sure this will not be the last you will hear about it since I am not a good waiter!

I am off work on Wednesday as I am every week and will be spending a part of my day interviewing a friend of mine for a paper I need to do for school. I will be very glad when this class is over because it is out of my area of interest. Although I complain about school alot I do enjoy learning and taking on a new career. Sometimes the load gets heavy with multiple projects due at the same time, but no heavier than my load would be if I had kids. I know that job is very hard as well. I have the weekend off so that will give me a good chance to get some work done and hopefully doing some stamping!
This card actually turned out okay even though I didn't know what to think about the color combination. I feel that way every week and then when I am done I usually like it! It is good to get me out of my color box, that is for sure! The way I did my sentiment was an idea from Nichole Heady's Blog.

: ruby red, elegant eggplant, whisper white
Ink: elegant eggplant, certainly celery, ruby red
Stamps: blossoms abound, best blossoms, Papertrey Ink Green Thumb
Accessories: earth elements brads, eggplant grosgrain ribbon, key tag punch, ruby red and celery markers, ticket corner punch
