You Turn Me On

I always struggle with the colour coral.  I never seem to get it quite right.  It's always a bit too orange or a bit too pink and never quite... well, coral!  It's even worse when I go to photograph it!  I work on a project and think that maybe I've got a handle on this whole coral thing and then I look at the photo of it and want to bang my head on my desk.  Today my coral looks exceptionally pink but I'm still going to enter my card in this week's Just Us Girls colour challenge.  I had yet to ink up any of my Paper Smooches Boob Tube stamps so I thought I'd give them some love.  I used a PTI impression plate on the grey cardstock although it's hard to see in the pic.  I used the Nesties peony die because I wanted a funky shape to mount the TV on.  Must dash off to work now.  Have a lovely one!

I hear you but it's purples and lavenders that give me headaches! I love the "peony" behind the TV, it's the perfct funky shape!

Perfect color choice for this image! That impression plate is next on my list at PTI, I love the way you've used it here.

I like your use of the peony die...it makes the card more interesting than if you used a circle or square or less exciting shape :)

Cute card Jen - I love that TV. I think the colours look great and the die cut is perfect :)

I'm not a coral fan myself but that said I love your card :)
The tv looks good in a girlie colour. I have that IP plate and find it a little too subtle for my liking...perhaps I need a thicker shim !

FUN!!! The color looks coral to me (I call it salmon, but I think that's the same as coral?). The flower Nestie in behind the TV is brilliant. Love ideas like that!

This card is so perfect, Jen! I love the way you used the colour combo and of course I think you should be entering the Paper Smooches guest designer challenge. ;)
