Pretty colors for PPA 311

My card today is for a co-worker who has decided to become a stay-at-home mom.  She is the mother of two darling little girls and hated being away from them.  She has been debating this move for awhile and I am so happy for her.

My inspiration today came from the PPA 311 color challenge. Lynn Hoyt gave me such a pretty color palette to work with!  Here's my card:

Can you guess which colors they are?  If you guessed the ones below, you have a good eye.


  • I used two stamp sets today.  The Smoky Slate background is stamped with a texture stamp from Touches of Texture.  The greeting is from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set.
  • I chose the Pink Pirouette DSP (Designer Series Paper) is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • The Marina Mist flower is cut using a die from the Sunshine Wishes Dies.
  • For a little bling, I adhered three sequins in a loose triangle.
I'm sure my friend will be pleased with this sweet card.  What do you think?

Happy stampin',


  1. Your ex-coworker is going to love this card, Robin. Love the use of Timeless Texture on the Smoky Slate panel. Gives it such a finished look. And you make me want to go to my craft room and pull out the Sunshine bundle. Thanks for playing along with the color challenge at PPA this week. Always enjoy seeing you in the gallery!

  2. What a happy card for a happy circumstance. I'm sure she will love the card as well as the warm wishes behind it!

  3. Robin, what a nice card! Your friend will love it! The way you stamped the edges almost makes it look silver in the light. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us this week at the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge!

  4. Oh, Robin, this is beautiful. The texture around the gray border is exquisite. Thanks for playing along with this Pals Paper Arts color challenge!
