PPA#59 Color Challenge



Here's my take on this week's PPA Color Challenge. These colors look nice together and include the Old Olive Green that I keep going back to recently, so it was perfect :) The tree is brand new, I just bought the die Die-namics by MFT from my local stamp store yesterday. I tried cutting it from cork, first, but it just didn't work, even running it through the big shot several times, I think the die was just too thin as it is one of the steel dies, or maybe the cork too thick? Anyway, on the paper it shows all the cool woodgrain, so that is a plus. I sponged brown ink onto it to give it a different look as well. The scallop square I cut with a Sizzix die. The button and ribbon and all papers (including patterned paper for leaves) are from SU. The sentiment from Michaels dollar bin and green pearls from A.C. Moore. The little green library clip is from SU. This was also a change for me because it is not a regular sized A2 card! I am enjoying going out of my comfort zone lately :)
