Another pretty palette...

For the Ella e-book give-away, see the post below! I will take entries until Saturday morning, Aug. 28th.
The next palette is up over at the Color Room! This one is a can't-miss. Just looking at these colors make me happy, so I had to try my hand at this color combo. I am really enjoying stepping out of my box with these color combos! This one is a combination I have never tried before.

I was at AC Moore the other day and spied these wool flowers! I just about died when I saw them, because the colors were PERFECT for this challenge! They jumped into my cart and I'm so glad they did, because it was a great jumping off point for my card. They were a little spendy, but I bought them thinking that I could make my own in the future. Great inspiration.
I had fun with my butterfly punch again and used the negative paper on the card.
Supplies: Orange paper - Creative Imaginations, Narratives by Karen Russell, dark purple paper - Hocus Pocus 6x6" paper pad by Pink Paislee,  light purple paper - My Mind's Eye, Penny Lane - Maggie May "Lola Jane" Delicate Dots paper, Ali Edwards stamp by Technique Tuesday - Simply You, wool flowers - EK Success, swirl - Artisan Elements by Pink Paislee, twigs - cut from Crate Paper's Pink Plum paper, family chipboard - Dusty Attic, butterfly punch - Martha Stewart, pearls- Melissa Frances, black ink - StazOn, machine stitching.
-----------------------------
Next is just a card I made for fun! I couldn't sleep one night (after being woke up several times by my daughter!), so I got up and played with some vintage book paper. I stamped the sentiment and then added some cute Pink Paislee - Sweetness rub ons (house and frame).These stamps are quickly becoming my favorites - as you can see I used this saying on both of these cards!

Supplies: Vintage book paper - Jenni Bowlin kits, misc button, Ali Edwards Simply You stamp set by Technique Tuesday, black ink - StazOn, rub ons- Sweetness by Pink Paislee, twine - Studio Calico, stick pin - , distress ink-Antique Linen by Tim Holtz.
