Not Another Yellow & Red Card!

Do you ever have those times when most of the cards you make end up using very similar or the same colors??? Arghhh!!!!! Looking back at the cards I have made this week, many of them are made using the colors yellow, red and black - It all started with my Mickey Mouse Card for the sketch challenge. Now Mickey himself is those colors so it suited the card I made to continue along the same color theme. Then the next day I was using up scraps of things I had played around with while I was creating all my Mickey's so they also ended up being made in those colors. And while my Mickey card I made and posted yesterday is mainly yellow and black there is also red in that one as well.

This afternoon I went to the SCS forums to see if the Limited Supply Challenge had been posted, it had. Jen who hosts this challenge every week is celebrating her birthday (happy birthday Jen!!!); and as Emily celebrated her birthday using her fav color combo's for the color challenge this week, Jen wanted to also go with something that was her favorite. So the challenge was to make a birthday card with animals, bugs, and/or creepy crawly creatures, a fairly simple challenge - yes? Ah but there is a catch, there is always a catch on this challenge. The catch today was we could on take 45 mins to create it - yeah I did it!!!!!! Anyway I guess the first thing I think of when I read bugs if my favorite bugs of all - the alota bugs! I picked one of the party bugs for my card and look what happened - I used yellow, red and black! I think I might have to hide those colors for a while and start playing some some others - I do have lots of other card here I can assure you LOL.

Recipe:
Stamps: Bug - alota rubberstamps; Greeting - Hero Arts
Paper: yellow, red and black
Other: Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing folder; red brads; black brads; tab punch & ticket corner punch - SU.

He's sooo cute!! Yes, I have had several of those...seems like I just went through those same colors a while back. But he's adorable!! I just came across another blogger today (first time seeing her blog) and she has lots of bee cards--so cute. Can't remember what her blog address is, but it's on my blog post today if you're interested. She has some unusual, but really neat things on there! ;0)
