PDCC #92 Coral, Petal Pink, Antiqe Gold


This week's Play Date Cafe Challenge is definitely a color scheme I would NEVER in a million years have been put together! Coral, petal pink and antique gold. But I have to say, they truly inspired me and I love them!

I love my Pocket Silhouettes set from Stampin' Up! and I haven't used it in a while, so I immediately knew that I wanted to use that set.

I also knew that my gold elastic cord and gold embossing powder would play a big part. I rooted around in my MILLIONS of pieces of designer series paper to find one that looked gold-ish-- and literally struck gold! ;D

I hope you can play along with this challenge, and I hope you like my final product! Thanks for dropping by--happy stamping!

This is so inspirational Minette! To emboss the grass image in gold and to put them with the pink and coral - it's produced the most stunning effect!
