Love This Colour Combo



This patterned curtain caught my eye right away.  I just love black and white cards, but as as I looked at the picture in more detail, I loved the cream, kraft and saffron colours in the room as well.

I started with a great piece of DP from my Costco pack and went from there. I VersaMarked the closest thing I had to a damask image on the saffron (it's one of the images in Verve's Accent Notes set) and added a little flourish with a half pearl to help fill out the sentiment panel a bit.  Black sheer ribbon, some cream half pearls and my card was done :)   I just love this colour combination and will definitely use it again!  Three down and only one to go - yeah :) 

Have a fabulous day and I'll be back soon with my  last Verve challenge card.  First, to the pool we must go  LOL!

What a stunning card, Marisa! You picked up on some wonderful colors in that pretty photo. I just love how elegant damask looks, and you translated that into your card perfectly. I hope the pool treated you gently today ;)
