Mostly Mauve

 Hello All,

Today I will be playing along with Rainbow Card Challenge. Their color this month is mauve. This is not my favorite color on the planet so I thought I would take on the challenge! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The sentiment came from another paper pack and I thought it fit perfectly with the roses.
A simple strip of dark mauve said just enough.

This card was created using the Altenew Craft-a-Flower: Rose Layering Die Set. I have tried with other designs to get it to look like a rose but to no avail. The colors weren't right because they were in the wrong family. So I thought I use a color challenge to force me to stay within the mauve color family.


I started with a paper pack that included all shades of mauve. So I plucked them out and went to work die-cutting. The leaves came from the same paper pack so I knew they would coordinate. 

Challenges Entered:
Rainbow Card Challenge: Challenge #26- Mostly Mauve

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.


All the best,
