Cut It Up #48 - Twilight

Cut It Up

Challenge #48 - Twilight

$10 Gift Cert

My Project:
Welcome to another challenge over at Cut It Up!!!

My amazing DT sister Katie has chosen the theme of
- Twilight -
and this was a challenge for me!!!

So what I decided to do was google the words
"twilight colors" to see what would come up
and THANKFULLY no pictures of the movie/book came up :)
Seriously not a fan!

Anyway, I derived a color palette from the beautiful pictures
that were shown and decided to use a few of those colors for my card.

Dark Navy, Indigo, Purple, Gold and Orange.

I found some pattern papers that matched these colors
that I thought went well together and came up
with a sympathy card.

The beautiful flower comes from Stretch Your Imagination.
The glossy paper I cut it out of is from a
Shimmer Mat stack from DCWV.
I tried to get a couple different shots to show off
just how pretty that paper is...

The b/g paper comes from My Mind's Eye Indie Chic 6x6 pad
and the two front mats come from American Crafts
Amy Tangerine 6x6 pad.

The sentiment comes from Craftin' Desert Divas
Simply Said stamp set
and the pearls are from Recollections.

I really like how this card turned out even if
this was one of the more difficult challenges :)

I hope that you will join us over at Cut It Up,
I am anxious to see everyone's take on this one!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
