*** Edit *** This card made "A Cut Above" at the Paper Players challenge.It's fun to combine two challenges into one card! I have to admit though...even though these are great colors, I struggled to make them work on my card. I pulled out several packs of discontinued Stampin Up DSP, looking for a way to tie these colors together. And....ta da! I found this patterned piece that had nearly all of the colors I needed. All I had to add was a piece of going gray CS, as the matting behind it. Then adding the gray crystals pulled it together nicely. A few dots of Stickles on the punched border added a little more sparkle. You can never have too much sparkle...IMHO anyway!
Oh sorry...I'm rambling. Here's my card :o)
Anyway, let me know what you think of my card. I love reading your comments!
