PPA#270 - Color Challenge

Hello and welcome back! I had a pretty busy weekend, but it's time to get back to creating! Today's card is for the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts. I've always liked Sahara Sand as a neutral card base and Blackberry Bliss is a lovely shade of purple, but Always Artichoke is a color I rarely use. Not sure why; it's just not a go-to color for me.

So here is today's card:

As I mentioned, I used Sahara Sand as a base, and stamped the small flowers from the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set with Sahara Sand as well to create a background. The sentiment is stamped in Always Artichoke onto a Tea Lace Doily, which was mounted onto a circle of Always Artichoke cardstock before attaching to the card front with dimensionals. It's hard to see that Artichoke circle, but it's there. That doily needed a little bit of support!  A strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock is tied with a piece of "vintage" Always Artichoke seam binding.

I like the clean and simple look of this card, and will probably make a few for my stash. Unfortunately, I'm afraid I'll be needing them before too long. :( 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
