La-La Land's Weekly Wednesday Challenge 37 - Color Challenge

This week at La-La Land Crafts Blog, our hostess, JANA, has a great color challenge for us!  Here's the color challenge . . .


This was a stumper for me just looking at the 4 colors.  How was I going to incorporate each one and make a pretty card?  Well, here's what I came up with.


I went with one main color which is the purple.  {{Thanks Irina!  Luv the papers you sent me . . . see?  Already used them!}}  The green from the leaves and flowers just blended together.  Thought orange hair would work and a tinge of pink.  Voila!  I don't think all 4 colors overwhelmed each other . . . what do you think?


A closer look at Pumpkin Lala.  Yes, Pumpkin Lala!  I actually wiped away the pumpkin (which was sitting on her lap) on my inked rubber.  In place, I placed a flower, tucking it into her lap.  Click {HERE} to see how I altered this flower.  Maureen did an excellent job with this tutorial!  I've been cutting up my hydrangeas like a mad woman!  :)

You can purchase Pumpkin Lala at the Online Store!  What's better is you can purchase Window Lala for 20% off only for the week of this challenge!  Run on over to the store now!  Thanks for stopping by!  :)
