PTI Color Challenge: Erin's Colors

Hi all!! I'm back with another challenge.  This one is a color challenge and I picked to work with Erin's color combination of Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream, Ocean Tides & Ripe Avocado. 


I kept this card and layout fairly simple.  I used the heart prints dies to make the felt hearts and the butterfly from the Love Lives Here collection for the butterfly.  After I sewed the border onto my focal  piece, I  flipped the border strip up just a little to add dimension.


I also used the canvas impression plate to add texture to the vintage cream cardstock.

The color palette I used was this:


Thanks for stopping by!!  Have a great day!

  2. The thing I like about your card the most is that flipped-up border cut. For some reason, it just jumps out at me. I zoomed right in to see how you did it. Great stitching on this one too.
