A new color combo for me...

Today's card is for the StampTV's Color Spotlight Challenge. I would never have picked combining the colors this week: white, Vibrant Violet and Fresh Asparagus; but that's what's fun about challenges. They inspire you to try new things.

I used my Hugs and Prayers and Lovely Labels 2 sets for my card. The papers are Pink Paislee Old School and my Vintage Basics digital papers. The ribbon is my hand-dyed seam binding. Speaking of bindings, my girls and I had fun yesterday coloring more of them. You should have seen my rainbow hands. Oh, but the results are so pretty. I may have to share some with you. Stay tuned for a Christmas giveaway soon on my blog!

  10. Oh I just love your card. I've been seeing seam binding used on so many cards lately. What is it normally used for and where can I buy it? I think it looks so fabulous!

  12. Wow Nina, this is one beautiful card - and yes, those colours do 'work' - think violets in spring and add snow, God uses those colours together all the time :-)
