Embellish Color Trends Challenge

This is my first time participating in the Embellish Color Trends challenge. I love this challenge because I enjoy playing with colors a lot.
What would life be without colors? I cannot imagine living without them, and I don't know if this happens to you, but I feel that colors are alive. I mean this in the sense that when I see certain colors, I FEEL something. For example, my color is orange and whenever I see orange, or hues of orange such as yellows or browns, I get transported to my creative zone. I get such a feeling of fulfillment. It's interesting, isn't it? What color are you?
There is a quite interesting book called "What Color is Your Brain?" by Sheila N. Glazov. If you have the time, check it out.
I hope you like my creation. Enjoy!
NOTE: For the background, I first stamped the leaves and flowers and then I embossed.

  1. Wow, I just love what you have to say about colour! I couldn't agree more. I'd say I'm green. I can't say no to anything makes me happy. I also love your little owl and I just ordered him yesterday at a card party I was at. So stinkin' cute!!

    That's so cool that this was your first time playing along with Embellish. We appreciate it so much and hope to see you again and again!!

  2. You are right about the colors!!! I like all colors, but it is true that sometimes depending on my mood I will choose certain color that matches the way I feel in that moment :) When I feel creative, I usually choose happy colors...

    Wonderful card, that owl is so cute and the texture looks fantastic! Thanks for playing along with us!
