Dutch Dare Card Challenge Time!

I missed it last week. But this week, I've got one for you!

This week, we were to use black, pink and purple. At first, I was unsure as to how I was going to make pink and purple look okay together. I mean, I know pink and purple CAN go together but I wasn't feeling it. Try your hand at the card challenge this week and see what sort of fun blog candy you could win. :)

But I chose this beautiful Basic Grey paper as my inspiration colors and it went together so easily from there! And if the black around the oval looks a little wonky, it is because I had to hand cut it since I don't have oval scallop Nestabilities (yet) and I had to use the largest one to cut out my image.

What I used: Hanna Stamps, Memento Ink, Copic markers, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, SU CS, Basic Grey PP (also used a bit to paper piece the present), Shimmerz Paints in Periwinkle, SU ribbon, and a ribbon slide.

Oh and don't forget to enter my blog candy for a $25 gift certificate to All That Scraps! ~~>CLICK HERE TO ENTER<~~ You can find that Basic Grey paper there as well as many Hanna Stamps. :)

This is beautiful! Absolutely beautiful! Purple and pink is not my favorite color combo, but you made it look very sophisticated! I love everything about it!

Great card Jennifer. I had a hard time with the color combo so I only made a boring card. TFS!
