My Inky Friends Design Challenge #1

Today I'm playing along with the first ever Inky Friends Design Challenge #1, inspired by the card on page 61 of the 2017 Annual Catalog. I used the color combo of Fresh Fig, Basic Black, Pool Party and Sahara sand to make this masculine birthday card. Stampin' Up! designed an In Color Combination Chart which you can find HERE. 
We would love it if you took part and joined in on the fun. All you have to do is design a card and upload it to the My Inky Friends Blog. After the link closes on Friday, January 12, 2018, we will post a winner. If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword MIFDC1.

  1. Follow the general design of a sketch, although it can be flipped. For a color challenge, Stampin’ Up! colors will be listed. You can use compatible colors and add neutrals as needed.
  2. Create something new that has not been posted before.
  3. Post your creation on your blog or online gallery.  Please provide a link back to our challenge. Provide a direct link to your project or post to the Linky.
  4. Feel free to combine with up to three challenges, as long as you include a link to the Inky Friends post.
  5. Have fun!
