My First Papertrey Princesses Blog Challenge

Hi all!!  As the newest member of the Papertrey Princesses (a blog group of very talented ladies), this is my first time participating in their bi-weekly challenges.  Steph is this week's hostess and her challenge was to use white and ONE other color.

In this case, my "white" is Rustic Cream.  That's not breaking the rules, is it?  I hope not.  I'd hate to be the rogue princess. :)  

I chose Rustic Cream and Pure Poppy as my color palette.  I die cut the large label from Mega Mat Stack 4 and stamped one of the border images from Damask Designs.  The sentiment is from that set as well.  

Then I added a ribbon knot to the top and adhered it with pop dots.  The bottom of the cardbase was trimmed with one of Papertrey Ink's edger dies.  I think it works really well with the shape of Mat Stack 4.  :)

Considering how quickly this card came together (seriously, no more than 10 minutes!), I'm pretty pleased with it.  It really helped having my color choices limited to one.  :)  Looking back on it, I should probably add a little bling somewhere, maybe near the sentiment? Such a dressy card needs a touch of something else, dontcha think?  

Thanks for a great challenge, Steph, and please go visit the other girls' blogs!  You can find links to the other Papertrey Princesses on the right hand side of my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
