CYCI#60 Color Challenge

Well this week's card certainly lived up to it's name... it was quite a challenge for me.  I pulled the Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, and Soft Sky cardstock and ink pads from their respective homes and stared at them for awhile.  I wondered what I had gotten myself into by asking to be challenged.  But I persevered and ended up having some fun with it.  At first, the color combo was leaning toward Baby style, but I have already done a few of those recently so I wanted to show a little more versatility.  I remembered an idea that I had for an Easter theme when I was making what I refer to as my "Baby Star card" using the Little Sunshine stamp set.  This week's colors lended themselves to an Easter Egg, so I decided to try it out.  When I cut the oval, it was a little bland, so I gave him some personality.  See what you think:

I saw the sentiments from the For Peep's Sake set, and everything just came together when this little guy walked out onto the card.  He's so funny!
Thanks for checking it out, and I hope you all play along and check out the other designers' great projects for additional inspiration at!  Will these colors will be challenging for you?  Or was I just psyching myself out?  I would love to see what you make, so please post your cards to win that coveted title! 
See you next week....
