It is not easy for me to use more than three colors (along with a neutral) when making a card.  So, the color palette for this first week of "camp"was challenging, for sure!  (click on link on my sidebar for info re: these online classes.)

I found a length of purple paper in my scraps and the orange and pink patterned paper is from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies stack pad.  I just purchased the large scalloped die from My Favorite Things and I can say right now that it will be one of my favorite border dies!! 

The Hero Arts classic bloom was embossed in white and colored with tumbled glass and chipped sapphire distress inks.  An orange button with pearl in the center of the flower helps to pull the colors together, I think.  The white embossed sentiment is from PTI. 

Can't wait to see what else the gals have in store for us!
