January Colors

I posted a card very similar to this one about a year ago. At the time, I made two and this is the first one, I posted the second one I made. Anyway, I like the motif I used (don't remember where I got it) and I like the layout. Hmmmm, I like the colors too. As some of you may know, I'm color challenged, never been able to coordinate "acceptible" color combinations.  Why am I telling you this? Well I took over a swap where I must pick out new color combinations each month. I'm still trying to figure this one out, however, I am up for the challenge.
Colors for the month of January are Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.
Before I made the color commitment for January, I went to visit my local SU rep. I couldn't figure out the Color Coach and color coordination being a  challenge, I needed to learn to use it. She explained how to use this accessory and some tips on picking out popular and/or new color combinations.
I hope you try these colors and while I would like to see what you come up with, I will just have to put it on my wish list.
Let me know what you think of my color combo. If  by chance I find where I saw the motif (it was on a card), I will post it on my Pinterest page.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  Take care

Hi Joyce. Your card is awesome, I love the motif. It reminds me of a Christmas pinwheel. I love the colors and the flower in the center really pulls all the colors together so nicely.

I just started a challenge blog and I'd love for you to visit and share your art. www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.com
