OCC Challenge ~ My Favorite Color Combo

Happy Saturday everyone! It's time for another challenge from the OCC ladies and this week Silke is asking us to make a card using our FAVORITE color combination! When I saw this challenge I thought 'well that'll be an easy one'...sure...if you only have one or two favorite color combos!! I have many, many different favorites so I just had to let this one sort of happen! I had been playing with the Sweet Slumber dp so I'm guessing that is how I ended up choosing this combo that I love! I've always loved red and yelow together, but I particularly adore these shades! (So Saffron, Riding Hood Red)

I started out by choosing the stamps I wanted to play with...Thoughts and Prayers is one of my fave newer set but hasn't seen near enough ink. I opted to color the image and decided that yellow and red flowers were what I wanted and the winning color combo was born! I really wanted more ribbon on here but had a tough time placing it so ended up with just a little So Saffron under the main circle panel! I think the rest is pretty self-explanitory so I won't bore you with any more details! I would like to share with you some of my other
~black and red with a splash of a brighter color like red or pink or teal
~pink and brown
~blues and greens
~brown and blue
~bright pinks, greens, and turquoise
~orange and pink
...just to name a few...
