A Color Combo First


This very subtle card has become one of my favorites. I'm all about simple and clean and this card is very much both of those.
I've never used these colors together. I'm not a big yellow fan but So Saffron from SU! is so subtle it's beautiful. I used Kraft c/s as my base and ran it through my NEW Big Shot with the small dots texture plate. Then I used a piece of very vanilla c/s and cut some patterned paper from the Tall Tales pack with my wavy cutter. The flower is from Kaisercrafts. I love the old look/color of it. The sentiment is from the SU! set Three Little Words.

This card is for a few challenges:

Our Creative Corner ~ Something Old that's New (my button and flower...I've been hoarding them.)
Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Keep it Simple
Pile It On ~ Let Us See Flowers

Thanks so much for visiting today!
Until next time...
Blessings...
