The challenge over at A.R.T. this week is a colour challenge.  Ooooooooh!  This was a hard one!  And, after a week completing all 42 challenges for Dare To Get Dirty week at Splitcoaststampers (where my User name is Waratah, by the way), my brain is VERY tired, not to mention that my craft room looks like a whirlwind went through!!
Anyway, for this card, I started with dark red cardstock and layered on the pale green background paper (from Kaisercraft's True Romance DSP), thenI added a panel of the blue on blue spot paper (from B0Bunny's Double Dot Designs DSP) which was layered onto dark brown cardstock.  I stamped the image which is from Docraft's Born to Shop series, with Memento ink onto blending card, die cut it with a Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangles die, coloured it with copics, layered it onto dark red cardstock and added it to the card front with foam tape.  The sentiment, from the same set, was stamped with Cherry Cobler ink (Stampin' Up!) onto white card, die cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval and layered onto dark red cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Scallop Oval and added with foam tape.  I finished off with three blue pearls in the top right corner.

Copic Colours used were:  E000, E01, E25, E27, E29, G40, G43, B00, B21, B23, R89.
