One of my favorite . . .

color combinations . . .


Good Evening my friends!  I'm back from the dentist ... NO CAVITIES!   YEAH!!

When I was doing floral design, I always loved combining purple iris with peach roses ... made for such a beautiful arrangement ... and now I've carried this color combination over into my card making!
Anxious to play with my new Cheery Lynn Designs Heart & Vines die  & metallic papers again that I recently purchased from Classy Cards n Such, I decided to make another card for their current challenge which is Hearts & Doilies.

This time, the metallic paper color I used is called "So ... Silk Fabulous Purple" (TPC-740).  I wish you could see this IRL ... it's BEAUTIFUL!!  Here's a closeup that might give you a better view of it.

The weight of this paper is perfect to showcase the detail in the die and the sheen it has is SO PRETTY!  LOVE this stuff (good thing, LOL, I bought it in 5 different colors!)

Here's what was used on this creation:
Papers:  CCNS metallic paper, white cs, Graphic45 'secret garden' dp, 
Dies/Punches:  Cheery Lynn Designs #DL103 Italian Flourish Doily Die, #B368 Lattice Heart & Vines Die, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
Accessories:  Purple, Orange Peel & Copper Stickles, White Satin Ribbon, Paper Studio flowers, Spellbinder classic circle die, JustRite Large Fancy Sentiment stamp CR-03815

A couple additional challenges:
DL.ART - Hearts

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're having a crafty week!
I'll be back in my cave tomorrow hopefully creating something that will inspire you!
Till then ... and as always . . .

This is so beautiful! I have never combined peach with purple, just never thought of it! Love the way they look together on your card, and with purple being my favorite color, I will definitely have to find something to do to use it with the peach - it is gorgeous!

I wouldn't have thought to put this color combo together for a card but I do love them together in floral arrangements.
