Papertrey Playhouse Challenge #8

Better late than never getting this challenge done and posted. The challenge this time around over at the Papertrey Playhouse was to "make a Valentine's Day or love card for someone special in your life but the catch is to not use the usual colors like red and pink." This one was HARD for me!! Give me a one layer card challenge, or a use this product challenge and I am there...but take away my red AND pink...that was hard. I think I managed to pull it together with a little help from a few of the design team members. Can you spot which one's inspired me with this card???

I used Dark Chocolate, Fine Linen, and Melon Berry as my main color choices, then found pattern paper in my stash to go along. Enter Basic Grey's Hopscotch mini the patterns in this collection!! Chose three patterns that went well together and ran with it.

Love the framed sentiment so much!! You may be seeing more of these!! So easy to do and so dramatic looking on the card!

Thanks for stopping by!!
