Papertrey Posse Monthly Challenge #2

Amy, our July Hostess, has given the Posse a color challenge. She asked us to create a project with Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, and Dark Chocolate.

I wasn't sure what to do with these colors at first, so I laid them out together in my craft room where I would see them often. As I was waiting for inspiration to hit, I looked through some of my patterned paper and realized that Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love line contains these same colors! I ended up using the "wonder" panel from the Earth Love Elements page and matted it on Ocean Tides. I then punched a Melon Berry border with my ek success punch (it's called Bumpy Road, but I think it looks more like whimsical clouds)and adhered it behind the Ocean Tides layer. The Aqua Mist layer is embossed with my PTI woodgrain impression plate and the card base is made form the Dark Chocolate. I added the little cream ribbon tag in the upper right hand corner simply because I had no idea what else to put there to fill the empty space! :) Head on over to the Papertrey Posse blog if you would like to play along with us!

My border punch came from Two Peas, but I did see one at Joann Fabrics yesterday.

Love it! Such a fun card. I really like that border punch, guess it will have to be added to the mile long wish list. :)

I love the pp you used - and the woodgrain texture. That plate is still on my wishlist - I love it more every time I see it used.
