Barely made it!

Mr. Linky let me post my card on the CDAC Progressive Challenge #4. I received my Round 5 images and they threw in a twist, use the cool colors of the spectrum.

Now, when you think 'turkey,' is a cool color combination your first thought? It isn't mine. I decided to do some research and yes, there is a black turkey, Black Spanish. That led me to think about my Black Australorp chickens and the fact they are glossy black with a greenish-purple sheen. Greenish-purple is on the cool side. I can do an artistic interpretation of a Black Spanish turkey. Hey, it's my bird!

As I was coloring this black bird, I needed more color. The Black Spanish has light blue around it's eyes. I can do that. And then I threw the Black Spanish look out the window. I decided to dress this bird.

If I ever saw a bird that looked like this, I would want to eat pork, too! The image was provided by Sew Many Cards. I hope she forgives me for this strange bird. Elizabeth Dulemba provided the pig.

Obviously, I couldn't keep away from some of the warm colors. No matter what I did, I just couldn't color a blue pumpkin. I could have added watermelon! They are green and DH picked the last of them last week. Oh well, a little late in that thought.

I tried some blue corn but it didn't work either. As much as I love blue (yes, it is my favorite color) I had to put some other color into this. I guess this means I totally missed the additional challenge! Oh well.

I think I need to buy a frog to place my cards on when I take pictures. The card really is a 5.5 x 4.25 inch card, not a quadrilateral polygon.

You could have used a white pumpkin, I have seen pictures of them in halloween posts and projects although in the UK have never seen one myself...

This is a lovely card and I love that little pig from Elizabeth, soo cute.

Thank you so much for playing the CDAC PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE
