Three colors make a perfect palette

   When a color palette grows larger than three, I struggle. But this wonderful trio of soft colors is just what I like!  As the illustration says, it's time for Play Date Cafe' Challenge #99.
   I chose to CASE a card by Shari Carroll ...somewhere on the Hero Arts blog, I think!    Her card was a little more "homespun" with natural colors and embellishments.  I chose a metallic designer paper from KaiserCraft for the flower and added rich pearls to finish off the card.  (Click for a closer view.)

Love that purple! A beautifully simple but pretty card. I really like all the elements you added, like the pearls and the bottom edge. Denise B.
