Papertrey Ink 4th Anniversary Color Challenge.

Now that I have gotten the taste of entering into challenges, I couldn't resist entering into Papertrey Ink's 4th Anniversary Color Contest.  The challenge was to create a card or project using the favorite color palette of one or all of their ever so capable PTI design team members.  I chose Heather Nichols' preferred colors of Papertrey Ink's Ripe Avocado, Spring Rain, Dark Chocolate and Kraft.  Gorgeous!


I was able to incorporate all of the colors in this card.  I didn't have any Ripe Avocado cardstock left though, so I had to settle for it as an exact color match only in the blossoms (If you squint you might spot it).  Other than that, All the cardstock matched exactly (Not that you can tell with the heavy handed distress inking that I love so much).    I really tried to pull the distress inking back a bit, but no cigar.  What can ya do?  Thanks so much for stopping by! x
