PPA166 Color Challenge

Welcome to this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge. I LOVE this color scheme. 

I had the Smoky Slate Chevron ribbon bow already tied and sitting on my desk from another project that took a different turn that I had planned on. That's where I began my card. 

The horizontal bow is accented by the vertical shape from the Chalk Talk stamp set. 

I accented the image with a Simply Pressed Clay flower. I took a bit of the clay, added in a drop or two of Strawberry Slush re-inker an kneaded it until the color was even. I pressed it into the Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds, popped it out and then let it dry. 

I love how feminine my card turned out. This will be for my niece's birthday in September. She will be turning 9 and I think it will be perfect for her.

How will you play along with us at Pals Paper Arts? There are unlimited possibilities with a color combination challenge. I hope to see YOUR creation uploaded on our PPA blog!
