First, thank you to those who gave me honest feedback on my card yesterday. I really, really appreciate it! While I do like to play it safe, I also have the desire to improve my card-making abilities and to fill in my knowledge gaps, in areas like design layout and color application and such. So I appreciate your taking the time to help me do that. 😉
And now, here is something that makes me feel a lot more comfortable!
Actually, when I saw these colors over at The Color Throwdown, I wasn’t very comfortable with them. A little bright and bold for my liking.
But then I figured I would just break out my Banner Builders stamps and dies and try something with those – since I’ve had them for a few months now and still hadn’t broken them out yet.
My usual strategy for using red is to use as little of it as possible. (hee hee) I tolerate red a lot better than I do orange and yellow, but it still is a very overwhelming color for me, so I’m more likely to use it as an accent color rather than a main color.

I thought that using just a little bit of each color, with a lot of white space, would be totally safe. So I went with that! Haha!
