PP623 Pretty Hello

Hi stampers!  Time for a new Paper Players challenge with Claire as our hostess!  She has a brilliant color challenge for us, and I will admit that it WAS a challenge for me!  Here is her color palette:

Shades of purple are always a challenge for me!  I began by choosing some DSP in the challenge colors, but I used all the same patterns so they would coordinate a bit.  I borrowed a sketch from Mary Fish

and off I went:

This little floral pattern is my favorite from the DSPs this year!  I did some layering, added a Basic White tag on which I stamped some florals from Simply Fabulous, popping up the largest Orchid Oasis one:

and then embellished my tag with some Glittered Organdy ribbon and some baker's twine from my stash. I diecut a "hello" from a retired die, mounting the cardstock on an adhesive sheet so it would really stand out.  Of course, running it through my Big Shot made those little holes on the die really pop out, but I guess you could call it a decoration!  It matched the matte dots I added, I guess!

I hope you'll accept this challenge and play with our colors this week!  Be sure to stop by the Paper Players blog to see all the lovely creations our DT has come up with!  Thanks so much for popping by, enjoy your day and be blessed!

I can see how these colors would be challenging, LeAnne, but you pulled it off beautifully! A very sweet little Hello!

I love the co-ordination of those floral panels and that little tag compliments them perfectly! Such a fresh card!

Wow, LeAnne! What a wonderful mix of the challenge colors! I love the combination of the tag, circle and rectangle. It's a fabulous layout. The sentiment die cut is bold and perfect. Who wouldn't love to receive this beauty!

Hello, Leanne! I really like this bright and happy card. The combination of 3 different colorways of the same printed paper is effective and very successful. Xoxo, Fran
