Jaron's Color Combination Creative Challenge #1

I have been a Stampin' Up Independent Demonstrator for 6-1/2 years and have loved every minute of it. I have a personal blog but thought it might be nice to have a blog dedicated to my creative side, which means stamping! To start my blog, I have decided to take a challenge.

In the past I have never done challenges, but I must be on a roll because I have been doing challenge after challenge this past month! The challenge I decided to start with was given by Jaron. Jaron is a very talented, enthusiastic and creative man that I have seen at every Stampin' Up Convention or Regionals that I have attended. I will miss him tremendously at convention this year! On his blog he presented a color combination challenge and I decided to take it. The colors he chose were Taken With Teal, Soft Sky and Old Olive. I definitely would never have put these colors together, but I must say they look beautiful together. Way to be inspired Jaron!
