Less is More Color Challenge

This is my submission for this weeks Less Is More challenge which was a color inspiration utilizing one of Design Seeds color palettes. 

It's really overcast today so my pictures are not very good.  There is a bit of script in Pink Pirouette behind the sentiment die cut.  It looks really pretty in real life. 

Below are more than a few that are ok, but not really what I had envisioned.  The card I started with is the Thank You card using Lacy & Lovely by SU.  But there are about a million cards with that design, and I think I can say that with confidence even without looking in the SCS gallery.  :)

The next one was inspired by a Viva la Verve sketch challenge from a few weeks back. I used Creamy Caramel on this one but the stamped sentiment looks almost gray on my computer.  I think it's the poor lighting today.  :(


These last two were my first tries, but they didn't turn out very well.  In fact they look nicer in the picture than they do in real life.  haha

So that's it; or at least the ones that were actually finished and not tossed before they were completed.  I think there are three more in the trash.  I really liked the colors but just couldn't seem to make it work. 

Thank you for stopping by.
