I love it when I can combine challenges to find inspiration, don't you? This card was done to meet the requirements for Color Challenge #115 AND Amy Westerman's Super Sketch #15. Amy's blog contains a new sketch each Sunday. I just discovered this, and I'm sure this won't be the last sketch challenge of hers that I participate in either!
I also find the Color Challenges on SCS a real inspiration for me to use color choices that I might not have come up with on my own. This is one of those color choices. Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery and Old Olive. I have nearly an entire package of Vintage Violet since I have a difficult time finding colors that I feel look good with it. I was so happy to be able to use it for this card!
The accent bands have a little rick-rack across them and to highlight the bands a bit, I distressed the edges of the Vintage Violet and then paper pierced in the valleys of the rick-rack for a little more interest. I also tried to add a little interest to the flowers by putting a little dot of purple stickles on the centers. (hard to see in this picture, but trust me...it's there) :)
