I made this card for color challenge 35 at CR84FN, which is to use lavender, celery, and gray. While walking my dog down to the beach the other night I came across a patch of thistle, which inspired this card.
This next card was actually my first try, but I found both the white paper and the green ink to be too bright. I do like the fact that the panel is smaller on this card and I think I like the gray sentiment. I'll have to do a third round combining my favorite elements of the two! :)
Paper: PTI rustic white, Coredinations gray, lavender from scrap bin
Stamps: Hero Arts real flowers, PTI sentiment, Close to My Heart sentiment
Ink: VersaMagic Spanish olive, purple hydrangea
