CYCI Challenge # 142

This challenge from CYCI was a color challenge.  Well it was challenging for me to find these colors in my stash.  So, I took a little artistic license and used a slightly lighter color than eggplant.  I had this pretty printed paper and sentiment stamp which came as a free gift with a card making magazine.  Since it had the lavender and silver colors in it, I thought it would give me a chance to use it.  I paired it with a slightly darker cardstock and matted both pieces onto a white base.  It is so hard to see in the photo, but the tops of the trees on the print paper is silver.  I then embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and finished it off with a lavender bow.

I hope you like it and that you will stop by and take the challenge for yourself.  We would love to see what you create.

Have a great day!
