More card challenges.....




I noticed this week it's a "three spree" challenge at paper players. I just happened to have a few more alcohol ink cards left to post, and one had THREE zinnia's. Score! 



Then I saw it's a color challenge at less is more:



Score again! I used several different shades of blues for the alcohol ink background, which turned out to look turquoise.

 I used white textured paper again, love that stuff...and also some MB dies. The border is the Lucienne Tile die, so delicate and pretty. I added some SU ribbon to the zinnia stem. The sentiment is also SU from simply sketched.

You can really see the textured paper on this photo:


I love the soft look it adds to the card!
