Paper Players Colour Challenge #PP182

I've added a new badge to my side bar today that will link you to The Paper Players blog.  Look for this badge:

I've played along with a couple of their challenges in the past, and decided to revisit them this week when I saw this gorgeous colour combo challenge.  
Colour Challenge #182
The Paper Player's Design team is comprised of some very talented ladies so you'll want to check out their creations and visit their blogs.  One of the things I like about the The Paper Players challenges offer is the variety of their challenges. They're not just about sketches.  

Their challenges are posted on Sundays and run until Friday noon, and they annouce their winners each Saturday.  Here is their monthly schedule of challenges.  Hope you'll play along too.

Week One:     Theme Challenge with Pinterest Inspiration It'
Week Two:    Colour Challenge
Week Three:  Clean and Simple Challenge
Week Four:    Sketch Challenge
Week Five:     Tic Tac Toe

Here's my card for this week's Colour Challenge:

If this card looks similar to the one I did for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #79 last week, you're right.  I really enjoyed that sketch and the way it came together so quickly, so I decided to reuse the sketch and the Starburst Sayings stamp set.

The colour combo of Crisp Cantaloupe, Midnight Muse and Gold works so well for this card.  Here are some more views:

The Starburst Sayings stamp set includes a variety of small, medium and large stamps that are perfect for celebrating many events and successes. Here I've stamped the images in Cranberry Crisp and Midnight Muse and added a small touch of gold.
