radiant orchid?. . . .

Well, not quite, Virginia!  (insert giggle)  But, Ranger's Adirondack wild plum dye pad is pretty darn close and I decided to use it for this card for a few challenges:


The stamps are from Hero Arts.  I embossed the greeting with platinum embossing powder and it is so pretty IRL.  And, the sequins match the ink almost perfectly.  I am not far from Lowe's and Home Depot, but it is so, so cold this week and I'm not hankerin' to travel out and about just for paint chips!!  :) 

Hope you like my version of the newest Pantone color of the year.
