Today's card.

I love these colors for challenge #15 from Dawn McVey. These PTI colors are some of my favorites. I can't wait to get my order from them in a couple of days! Everything on this card was more or less an experiment, from the inking the edges white to seeing what color would happen when I clear-embossed the pink paper. I think I'll have to try another one for this week's challenge, though, just so I can get the colors perfectly right. These seem a little off to me. Regardless, enjoy! Thanks for stopping by. :)

Supplies: Cardstock: Archiver's (Pink), Bazzill (Green), DCWV (Melon) and The Paper Studio (Creme), Border Punch- Fiskars, Corner Rounder- Fiskars, Embossing Powder and Ink- Ranger, Ink- Tim Holtz for Ranger (Shabby Shutters) and Tsukineko (White Brilliance), Stamps- Hero Arts (K5175 and CL231), Thread- DMC, other- Buttons and Ribbon.
