Color at the Play Date Cafe' Challenge again

 

This PCDD challenge is always a real challenge for me, primarily because I create cards I would never normally create!  It's so great for my brain!
And because I made the Fab 4 group last week, I was especially determined to make this week's combination work.  (Thanks, PDCC gals!)

My card this week is based on a piece of  Basic Grey "Porcelain" from a 6x6 paper pad.   The zigzag pattern has all the colors, but its design needed a little 'toning down.'   That's where the Hero Arts Doily image came in.  The sentiment is from Impression Obsession.

Wow, you REALLY made this work. Love it! What a great visual impression this card makes at first glance. That doily may have to be my next purchase (thanks, Jacqueline!!). The sentiment works like a charm with the overall feel of the card. Fantastic!! Denise B.

The doily stamped image looks fabulous on this paper - yummy card. Glad to hear you rose to the colour challenge; I love a challenge myself, and some colours are more of a challenge than others!!
