Embellish Magazine Banners Color Trends

I made a card for the current Embellish Magazine challenge, using banners:

It’s my first time with this challenge, and I’m embarrassed because I think my printer was playing tricks on me again.  My printout of the above photo made the purple look more lavender or pink than it looked when I came back to the computer after creating my card.

At any rate, this is the card I created in response to the challenge:

Though it is barely noticeable in the photos, I used PTI’s Background Basics: Newsprint stamp set in grey for the background behind the banner.  I received my new PTI ribbons in the mail yesterday morning, so I immediately put some of them to use here – making a little banner of ribbon strips held together by a strand of caramel-colored embroidery floss.  The rhinestones are Kaisercraft champagne in color.

The teeny tiny scallop circles are from the smallest die in the Spellbinders Dahlia Nestabilities set.  I thought they were so very adorable.

And now, I am just going to go sit down and chill for a little bit and rest my poor nerves, because as I was typing this post, my little 5-year-old daughter darn near choked on a piece of orange.  Thank the Lord that a little bit of the ol’ Heimlich was all she needed to spew it out!  ACK!!!! :-S  Fortunately, I was able to stay calm.  Unfortunately, I think I now have the shakes and probably won’t sleep very well tonight.
Nevertheless, thanks for stopping by today.  πŸ˜‰
