AUTHENTIQUE: September Color Challenge

We will have two challenges per month:
Sketch Challenge - The Sketch Challenge will be posted on the first Saturday of each month. There will be two sketches posted {one card sketch and one layout sketch} for you to use as inspiration.
Color Challenge - The Color Challenge will be posted on the third Saturday of each month. There will be a color palette posted for you to use as inspiration.

We would love for you to play along!
Just use the challenge inspiration to create as many projects as you'd like.
A winner will be randomly selected from all the qualified entries to receive an Authentique Paper prize pack!
{The more projects you create, the better your chances are of winning!}

Here is the color palette for September 2011:

Here is my interpretation of the color options. I really wanted to focus on the Foundations paper, as well as use more of the Splendid that I received. I also used some of the Blissful papers and die cuts for the sentiment. The pink bow is actually paper rafia that I unwound and tied around the card.
 (Supplies Used AUTHENTIQUE: Journey Foundations Front, Splendid Renown, Blissful Prosperity, Splendid Icons; OTHER supplies: paper rafia, a•muse studio stamp, cardstock)

I used an a•muse studio stamp for the sentiment. I like how the script works really well with the Blissful die cut.

It's a brighter card, but I like the fact that it will help to brighten my friends day. 

Make sure that you link your color challenge to the AUTHENTIQUE blog!! Also, check out the AUTHENTIQUE Facebook page for information on getting the new Free Bird loose 6x6 papers!!
