A Touch of Elegance

As is my  habit, last night I checked out the new challenge over at The Play Date Cafe - this weeks colour challenge is to use Plum...Pear...Moldy Cheesetheir choice of names, not mine - can you imagine going into a paint shop and asking for Moldy cheese paint?

Anyway, it's a really rich palette, so I decided to leave my comfort zone and come up with an elegant card with buttons and ribbons - yes I know, on the same card!!

Okay, I know it's not that far outside my comfort zone, but I did try.

I didn't use any clever tricks, except for the bow which is assembled in four parts rather than tied - I think I'm missing the gene that allows you to tie perfect bows - or even slightly imperfect ones - mine always come out looking as if the dog chewed it.

Thanks for looking, have a wonderful day.

Karen, I really like the color combination and the Bellini patterned paper gives it a little "pop" without taking away from the elegance of the chandelier. I have that set and it still hasn't seen ink, so you've given me incentive to get it out!

What a beautiful card! I LOVE that your bow is in 4 parts! I would never have known! Great yellow paper! THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with us over at the PDCC:)
