C4C225 Radiant Orchid

Hello – some fun news to share tonight. I’ve become a permanent member of the crazies over at Crazy 4 Challenges, so you will be seeing more C4C fun on my blog in the future. Including a card for this week’s challenge: C4C225 – A color challenge to use orchid, gray, and white.


I created my own delicious orchid background using Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender Distress Reinkers. Thought it would be fun to add a bit more texture using a Tim Holtz Stars stencil and Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.


The cute party fishie is Birthday Buddies (Paper Smooches) and the sentiment is from Slang Gang (Paper Smooches).


What do you think? I don’t use purples very often but I’m loving that background.

For more details on the challenge and additional great artwork head over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.
