Color Challenge: Ladybug Cards by Wendy Sue

Hello Doodlebug friends!  It's Wendy Sue here today and I'm so excited to participate with the design team's color challenge!  My color will have you seeing red- ladybug red that is!  I love that this is a color that is in MANY of the different collections and it is one of the original Doodlebug colors as well.  No matter how old the products in my stash, they coordinate perfectly with the newest releases that are rolling off the press right now!  I decided to feature four different cards from the "create-a-card" system.  Each card base and coordinating envelope is ladybug red.  And I used mainly ladybug red papers, stickers, and embellishments on the cards, with just a few accent colors.
Here's a closer look at my card and envelope sets:
Ladybug red and Beetle black adorn this teacher card:
Bon Bon brown mustaches coordinate perfectly with this ladybug card:
How about a little lime green froggy holding a love note on this ladybug card:
And finally, some traditional ladybug, blue jean, and lily white deck out the front of this thank you card:

Now it's your turn!  Pull out a few different doodlebug collections and pick one color to start with, then pull in other colors to compliment your main choice.  I bet you'll be surprised at how many looks you can get with one dominant color!  Thanks for stopping by - be sure to come back tomorrow to see how one of my fellow designers met the color challenge!
