A Lot of Yellow and a Little Lavender

is how I would describe my card for The Play Date Cafe's color challenge this week. This week's color were really a challenge for me because, well they are my least favorite colors :) I really thought I would use more purple but apparently I was embracing the yellow lol

The inspiration photo
and my card

I kept it super simple today :) It seems like lately I'm keeping it that way a lot. Something about the clean designs really appeals to me.

I stamped the leaves (Hero Arts, Delicate Leaf Clusters) in scattered straw. The sentiment (Hero Arts, Truly Appreciated) is stamped in jet black archival ink (Ranger). To add my lavender I used pearls (Craftaroo).  To keep the card a little interesting I rounded one corner and popped my main panel up on foam.

Tonight my husband and I are concert goers :) He bought me tickets for my birthday and I'm so excited it's finally here!! Foo Fighters Here we come!!

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back tomorrow with some mini-cards.
