July 2016 Create Along With Us

Hello friends.  Playing along with Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us challenge this week, and while there is always oodles and oodles of inspiration to be found from all the DT every month, I was completely blown away by Dawn McVey's card:

SO simple but SO striking!  I absolutely LOVE the colors!!  How does she do that where she just knows what colors will look great together?!!  I never would have chosen these 4 colors (Pale Peony, Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet, & Melon Berry) to go together, but they totally work!  I wanted to completely CASE Dawn's card, but thought I should at least try to put my own spin on it!  So I kept mine simple too, used the same color cardstock, used the Mighty Bloom cover plate die, and flipped mine upside down, and came up with this:


Very similar, but just enough of my own spin on it.  I still can't get over how perfect all those colors are together...love, love, LOVE!!  My sentiment is from Winter Woods, and I also added a rainstone to the center of the bloom.

Check out what everyone else is being inspired by, and play along over on Nichole's blog right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  8. Dawn's card caught my eye, too, & I was trying to decide if I "have" to have that cover plate, but oh my goodness--I'm in love with your version, Marcia! Now I've gotta get Pale Peony so I can use this color combo!

  16. I was surprised when I saw Dawn's card using that color combo, too. However, it's lovely and so is your beautiful card, Marcia. I don't have either cover plate so guess I won't be CASEing this anytime soon.
