Sticking my neck out

I made this for Color Throwdown challenge 51 – lavender lace, garden green and so saffron. I am not a purple person, not at all. It’s not a color I reach for unless I really have to or it is for a flower, so, I figured, since this was a challenge, I’d give it a go.

I combined Gina K’s Whatever floats your boat with SU’s Touch of Nature for this 5 ¼ inch square card.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!



Stamps: Gina K Whatever Floats Your Boat, SU Touch of Nature
CS and DP: SU Garden Green, So Saffron, Lavender Lace
Inks, markers and coloring tools: Palette Noir Black, copics, So saffron, garden Green, baja breeze, bashful blue

That's funny about the purple, I used to never use it but lately I have made several cards with it, including the one I posted today!

I like your card, I like giraffes. I love the way the stamp goes from the background paper and then into you image panel.
