Good Sunday everyone! It's color challenge week at The Paper Players Challenge and Laurie has a pretty combo of Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray. I created the floral background using Melon Mambo ink (SU) and stamped each image three times using a MISTI. I then die cut the panel using Reverse Confetti's Pierced Round Top Layers die.
The photo doesn't show it well, but the sentiment was silver embossed on a heavy weight vellum which was layered over a white strip and adhered with the 4 brads. The lighter gray dots are from Simon Says Stamp's "We Can Do This" stamp set using Hickory Smoke distress ink. The darker gray is featured in the tiny scalloped borders. I'm not sure why both my Smoky Slate and Basic Gray inks by SU are being contrary. The one is barely visible and the other pad is totally dried up and I never got around to replacing it - ugh! I was not planning to add sequins, but thanks to an ink smear, they were used to remedy the goof. For a simple card, I had my share of challenges with this one - lol!

I'm also entering this into the Stock Your Stash February challenge on the Reverse Confetti blog. This month's theme is encouragement/congratulations.
