My Favorite things is teaching another summer session (each lesson focuses on a different color theory).  One of the lessons is about primary colors.  I find primary colors a little bit intimidating, but Torico had some really great tips on her blog.  She walked us through the thought process she used to make her card, which I found really helpful.  I used a similar process for this card.  I tried to think of a theme that would make the most of the primary colors, and I decided to "go country."  AND... what says country better than cowgirls, chickens, and gingham?!  From there, the card came together quickly.  

To make the card I used the MFT stitched scalloped border dies (I love these!) and the Green Pastures stamp set illustrated by Torico.  I paper pieced her clothes (and the chick) to make sure that the shades matched.  Matching saturated shades of the primary colors can be HARD. 


That's it for me.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
