GDP 069/Colour Challenge

GDP 069/Colour Challenge  GDP (Global Design Project) is a weekly challenge starting each Monday.  My upline, Brian King,  is one of the designers for this challenge, so it’s always fun to play along.  This week’s challenge was to use Basic Black, Old Olive, and Calypso Coral.  At first I thought it would be a bit difficult to work these colors in, but when I started playing around, it all fell into place, with inspiration from Mary Fish‘s checkerboard card.

I used Calypso Coral cardstock and some retired DSP for the squares and cut them out using the smallest square on the Simply Stitched framelits.   The punch on the front is new (!!) and coordinates with the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  I simply layered 3 of the punches by cutting the Old Olive and Calypso Coral in half to form the outlines.  I’m pretty pleased, but wish I could have had the patience to do a full checkerboard design instead of the open one.

Here’s my card:
