Green with Envy....CCG #232

{ Color Combos Galore: Challenge #232 }
{ Sketchabilities: Challenge #85 }

It's Pantone's Color of the Year: Emerald Green and Color Combos Galore is celebrating it with Color Combo #232. My layout:

Color and Inspiration...

The CCG Designer's Challenge: From the four photos, I chose Inspiration Photo #1 - Focus On Composition: Clustered Elements. I also added some metal elements (Inspiration Photo #1/More Inspiration Ideas) and some stitching (Inspiration Photo #3/More Inspiration Ideas). 

Sketch Inspiration...
Sketch #85 @ Sketchabilities

In working with the sketch, I basically stuck to the whole design of it. For the flourish background I used a Krystal Hartley photo frame. The long paper strip on the left was replaced by the hexagons. On the lower right, I kept the banner label, added another hexagon, a journaling card and layered some word strips over the whole space.

I had no idea what I was going to use for this combo. I couldn't believe I scored not one, but EVERYTHING was a freebie for this layout. Once my design was done, I started searching for a photo, and BINGO! when I found this photo of my Mother and Jabran. I was thrilled how perfect her shirt was for this combo!! (YAY)

Anyway, about those digi freebies, Sweet Shoppe Designs is having a Facebook Hop. There you will find a lot of great quality stuff! But hurry, these freebies are only available until the end of the month. You can see and download all the ones I used HERE.

I hope you are inspired by the colors to play along. The challenges are running the whole month and will close on Feb 28. See what Design Team members Kelly Holbrook and Jinny Newlin made with this Color Combo!

As always, thanks for stopping by and....
Happy Scrappin',

What a beautiful take on the sketch and color palette, Janet! I really love the movement you've created with the angle of your photos and those yummy butterflies! Plus, I'm seeing lots of trendy chevrons and hexagons. LOVE!
