Hotel Carpet Challenge

When I went to Convention in August, my roommates told me about a challenge that they had started last year: to make a card using the colors in the carpet of a facility--for them it was a restaurant (they said it was a hideous color combo). So we all had talked about doing the carpet challenge using the colors of the Salt Lake Convention Center carpet. For one reason or another, we never finished the challenge.

I really liked the idea, and with as much travel as I do with my (full-time) job, I thought it would be a wonderful challenge to start for all of the travel venues I use moving forward! One of the girls in my monthly club was with me on my most recent trip to Houston and we decided to take the challenge using only the colors in the carpet at the Hilton Americas Hotel in downtown Houston. If I'd been thinking, I would have taken a picture of the carpet to post so you could see where the inspiration came from, but I didn't. I will try to start doing that.

The Hotel Carpet Color Challenge included the following colors:
Taken With Teal
Chocolate Chip
Very Vanilla
Dusty Durango
Ruby Red
Old Olive

Here are the cards that we did. Mine is the first and hers is the second. We had so much fun doing these!!
