Pals Paper Challenge PPA83

So here's another entry into the Pals Paper Arts Challenges - this one was started a few weeks back and completed after the the challenge ended but thought I'd go ahead and add to my blog.

PPA83 - Celebrity Color Challenge

The celebrity paper crafter was Nancy Leedy of Canopy Crafts.  Nancy choose Baja Breeze, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake as the color challenge.   Which sorta threw me, I can be so literal at times.  You know, flowers are bright , leaves are green ... that kind of useless drama.  To add to my struggle with this challenge, there are some wonderful vintage card makers who participate in PPA challenges and for some other worldly reason I thought I'd give it a whirl.  BIG mistake, huge mistake.  After I got over myself ... which does take me quite awhile I came up with this card.

I used the Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack Subtles (117152) for the two Baja Breeze patterns.  The rest of the card is strictly card stock.  I did use the brand new Embosslits Sweet Buttons (121813) for the small buttons.
