PDCC #79

Lime green, red and gray are certainly not my go to  colors for cardmaking.  Here is the challenge photo for Play Date Cafe:

My card features stamps from Hero Arts. 

The fabric background stamp and the sentiment were stamped with Ranger Adirondack slate ink.  I heat embossed the flowers and added red gems to the centers.  The lace accents are from Hero Arts also.  A nestabilities die was mounted on red cardstock, which is brighter IRL than in this scan. 

This was indeed a challenge, but a lot of fun.

Yes, sometimes a color scheme can be daunting. It took me a little while to come up with something for this, too, but I love challenging myself! I like very much that damask background you stamped, and layered on those pretty flowers. THanks for playing with us at THe Play DAte CAfe!

Some colour schemes are a challenge, I find pastels really quite tricky, but you've done a great job! Love how you've done the little flowers around the frame. Thanks for playing along with us at Play Date Cafe!
