Pretty Pink Posh Challenge #18: Green, Yellow & Violet

I'm really loving the challenges from Pretty Pink Posh. This week's challenge was combining green, yellow and violet. I never knew how many companies shy away from violet until I really started looking for the color in all of my stash.

I remember chatting with Samanatha over at Authentique about this over a year ago. And she created a fantastic line that includes a deeper violet than I could use for this project in her Remembrance line. However, for this card, I used a combination of Cosmo Cricket, Crate Paper (Maggie Holmes) and Simple Stories. For all of my embellishments: MME enamel dots, May Arts ribbon and some sequins from JoAnns.
This one uses a few layers of dimensional adhesive. I now know why the ladies at PPP suggest tape. It ate up quite a bit of time to take off the plastic off of each piece of adhesive. And my ribbon was too big for the sentiment tag. So I made a knot. Love it!!

Time to complete this card, including cutting the pieces, etc.

  1. Oh, I like everything about this! I love the layout, I like how you used alphas to create your sentiment, and I KNOW Paulina's going to love your sequins! *wink*

    Thanks so much for playing along with the Craft Dash this week, I hope we'll see you again soon!

  2. Oh, so cute! And I totally hear ya about violet not being represented in the scrapbooking world- every time I see a line with a light purple, I usually buy it. And I still don't have very much.

  3. Oh, this is so pretty!!
