Superstar card designer contest!

I found time yesterday to make another card for this challenge at My Favorite Things, while my hubby worked on fixing the bugs in my computer.  My computer is back to the way it was before he started working on it, but the original problem is still there.  Get my message?  It took all day and part of the day before to do this, as we developed many, many problems along the way.  Including completely loosing Blogger.  I was sweating, but now I can at least post.
So back to why I came here today.  In this challenge, we are to show off what we learned in Summer School.  Check out the MFT challenge HERE

This card shows off the principle of color theory....Gallon/quart/pint.
A gallon of Black, a quart of white and a pint of red.  
 Here is my card.

The recipe:
MFT stamp Pretty Poppies ( stamped and fussy cut)
Dynamics die Cross stitched circle and Blue Prints 18
White and black Onyx card stock from GKD
GKD inks  Cherry Red, Fresh Asparagus, Grass Green 
Red and Black Wink of Stella ( bought before I realized that all you need is clear!) 

The blueprints die helped to make this come together, and I used only part of the circle die.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I partially cut the banner to make it fit the sentiment.  

Thanks for stopping by, this contest says that I can enter 5 times.  You may see me again.  I am having fun. 
Enjoy!  I just realized that this is my 300th post.  Yahoo!
