Effortless Fancy and Eelegant Card

Hello friends!

I hope this post finds you well. Today's post is another project from this month's Altenew Inspiration Challenge. Yours truly is the host and I can't stop creating another post with this yummy color combo.


I know it helps to have a green color for the inspiration. Altenew is well-known for anything and everything floral. However, this month's color combo does NOT have a green color That doesn't mean you should stop creating floral designs. If you are stumped by this challenge, please think outside the GREEN zone and get creative. 


Here is my 2nd take of this color combo. It is VERY simple and certainly can be done without much fanfare. See my first take HERE.

The products that I used in today's project are ornate and intricate. That is precisely why we should not overthink/overdo it!

The inking of the background is the KEY to this simple and yet striking designs. I used Peach Perfect, Coral Bliss, Marigold, Mocha, and Mahogany Bark


I know you have lots of ideas brimming if you have this formula in your mind. Just go check your stash and get creative!

What an elegant card. Love the colors that you blended together. Look lovely with the intricate doily and the frame. Will be writing the colors down to tey them together.

Great design share. I like the idea for the challenge because I find it hard to make something I like to fit the theme or color.
