Two years ago, when I hosted the Cards for Inmates project, I offered this digital image. Fast forward to present date, and I saw that the sketch challenge at SplitCoastStampers involved two identical images facing opposite directions. Another challenge, the color combinations, called for using the following: Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Cajun Craze (these are Stampin’ Up names for a shade of green, light yellow and orange). Sooo…. I came up with this card!

The inspiration for this card took quite a while to gel and mesh together. It started with Karen Barber’s color challenge: use Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral and More Mustard – a combination that is way out of my comfort zone. I started working on it last Tuesday, but I was really struggling and couldn’t come up with a good idea. I got as far as die cutting two shapes – one in cherry and one in coral, then cut strips of mustard, and that was it!
