PPA160 Primrose Gumball Whisper

It's Pals Paper Arts Challenge time! The only problem I had this week was the arrival of my brand new items from the new catalog and having to complete this card JUST before they got here! I had no new DSP that would work and no new stamps sets that would work :-(  I had to think long and hard about how to make the challenge. But isn't that what challenges are for??? It should be a challenge -- to stretch our limits, creativity and resources! 

I decided to add a neutral, Basic Black, to the mix for some depth. I think it also makes it elegant!

The actual beginning of my card was to create the background paper from two of the challenge colors, Primrose Petals and Gumball Green. I didn't like the way the green stamped on the primrose, so I switched it around. Then my card base color had to be Primrose Petals. 

I hope you enjoy my card as well as the other Design Team members' cards and that you can create and share your own project or card using our colors! I would love to read your comments! I hope to post more projects this weekend, some showing some of the brand new goodies I received yesterday! Have a great day!

Wow....very pretty. I love Primrose Petals. One of my ultimate Fave's. It really looks nice with the Gumball Green. I would never have thought of that combination. I like how you stamped the green and I love the bling on the flower. Nicely done! Thank you for sharing.

Delightful, Patti! The black works so well with this color combo and the bow and bling are the perfect little touches.
