Hi friends!  Welcome to my post for Color Hues Challenge #29!  This time we are challenging you to use Brown & Orange for your card or project.

I have to admit when I saw these two colors together, I wasn't sure what I was going to create.  These aren't two colors I gravitate to together.  Thankfully, I had my pack of plaid paper on my desk and when I saw that it sparked this idea.

I love this skate stamp from Catherine in her Let's Go Skating Stamp Set.  It looks so good stamped in Sand Castle ink a couple of times.  I love the separate stamp for the laces & that I could stamp them in orange to match the patterned paper.

  1. I like the pizazz the laces give your skate! This is cute, Kristie!

  2. Love that skate - though I was never coordinated enough to stay upright on them!! One broken tailbone later, I just gave up!
    Darling card, Kristie - and my order has been placed!

  3. That plaid background is great, and the way you laced up the skate is perfect!

  4. Well Kristie, you had me with the plaid and the ice skate. lol Love this card, brings back memories of ice skating down at the farm pond with the boys and having a bon fire in the evenings. Hugs, Brenda

  5. Cute card!
    Have a great day!
    Marilyn ❤️

  6. Love the plaid background for your skate. Rumour has it that when our large pond froze over you could skate on it, so far in nearly 20yrs it hasn't! To be fair I spent more time on my BTM than on the blades when I was young. :)

  7. I think the skate and awesome orange plaid background is perfect for these colours. Super cute!

  8. Sorry I am late coming by...Love your skate and the laces are so cool! Reminds me of Friday Night Skate nights when I was a teen! Have a great weekend!

  9. That is definitely a bonus that you can stamp the laces in any colour you want - and the orange laces are fun! Great way to use these two colours.
