My Favorite Papertrey Ink Color Combo

Lots of exciting stuff happening for Papertrey Inks 4th Anniversary! Have you been keeping up with the festivities and challenges? Have you had a chance to listen to the very first podcast of Papertrey Ink Radio? I'm super excited to have been apart of it!

Well, today brings us to yet another super exciting and fun challenge. In honor of today's fabulous announcement over at Nichole's blog, the Design Team has assembled together a colorful array of our favorite color combos for you to play with. Here's my current favorite...
I've been pairing Lavender Moon and Harvest gold together a lot these days. Like here, here, here and here (scroll down to the third card). Purple and yellow are complimentary colors, which makes them a perfect match. Check out what I've come up with using my color combo of choice...
I pulled out both Life and Larger Than Life to create the sprig of flowers. Stamped them onto Rustic Cream cardstock in Lavender Moon and Chai (as my Fine Linen color to fit the combo). I wanted to keep these images light in color so that the sentiments, once stamped over, could really stand out. I really love the look of sentiments layered over images, it help to build a strong focal point.
Have you seen Erin's amazing Go-To Sentiment concept? It's amazing and I couldn't wait to try it out for myself! Check out her video here, it's the first addition to the new Make It Monday Series. I'll break down the sentiments for you: "friends" & "forever" from Flutterby Friend, "There's Nothing Better Than A True Friend" from In Bloom and "So Blessed To Call You Friend" from Signature Series: Cupcake. Once the stamping was done, I attached the panel to a kraft card base. Wrapped with twine and embellished with a few Harvest Gold buttons.

Now that you've had a peek at my favorite color combo, stop by and check out the rest of the Design Teams favorites...

Thanks for stopping by, have a great one!
