Welcome to the Utah Diva’s Color Challenge this week.  I wasn’t sure exactly what to do with these colors except flowers – but I didn’t want to do flowers – that was the obvious choice.  So I went way outside my comfort zone and created a card that is so not my style.   Here is the inspiration picture for this week –

These are some really bright colors – Concord Crush, Perfect Plum, Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.  Here is my funky card….

How do you like that lady with the bright pink hair?  She is really bright wearing that Concord Crush dress.  But this isn’t just an ordinary card.  I saw this idea in a magazine and wanted to try it – see that little tab on the side – well you give that a little tug and look what happens –

The scallop circle rotates to reveal a secret message underneath.  I think this idea is really fun and I want to try it again on a different style of card.

One more thing –

I have to tell you that Monday’s news was very unsettling.  They are reporting a KSU student named Tyler Davis died after eating at the Commons (the campus dining hall).  While this is very sad news the unsettling part is that my son is Tyler Davis and my son goes to KSU and eats at the dining hall too.  So it is very strange to listen to the news and hear them say his name.  I was very glad that I saw him this morning.  Tyler says he has been getting phone calls and text messages all day.
