PPA Color Challenge: Honey Crumb Berry

I knew I wanted lots of layers when I saw this color combination. I decided to keep it on the lighter side using Crumb Cake as my card base and stamping Blackberry Bliss splotches from Gorgeous Grunge for a little bit of interest. I added a neutral Very Vanilla matt for stamping my Gorgeous Grunge elements in Hello Honey.

Next, I stamped a bunch of the banner, heart and dots/stripes elements in all three of the challenge colors onto Very Vanilla card stock. I played with them until I was happy with which colors to use. My heart is cut out using the Snowflake Card Thinlit die. "Hello" was cut out using the Banners Framelits. I decided to add Naturals Chevron vertically and a piece of Venetian Crochet Trim horizontally. To finish my grunge vs. antique look, I added a single Basic Pearl to my heart.

What do you think? How will YOU answer the challenge? Please play along! I'd love to read your comments!
