I can't believe it's already May!  That means it's time for another I Am Roses Color Challenge. It’s happening right now. Here’s your chance to win some amazing flowers. Head on over to the I Am Roses Challenge Blog for more details and challenge rules.

Before you leave I want to share with you the project I created for this month's challenge.  Mother's Day is right around the corner, so I have quite a few cards that I need to make.  I ♥ how retro this card turned out, not what I originally had planned...but sometimes that's how it works out! :)

This month's color challenge was to use purple and teal/turquoise.  In my stash I found the "Flea Market" 8x8 Specialty Paper Pack by Making Memories that had both colors in it, so I knew it would be perfect for this card.  I layered the DP onto some Kraft Cardstock by PaperTrey Ink.  I stamped the sentiment using the "Happy Mother's Day" stamp by Verve Stamps onto some Cream Cardstock by PaperTrey Ink that I had sparyed with "Royal Amethyst Fire" Glitz Sprtiz by LSG.

Since the card was looking a bit 70's-ish, I thought this white fringe lace would be perfect!  I added a row of iridescent flat-back pearls on top of the lace. 

Here's a peek inside... 

Other Products used:

I hope you will join us for this month's I Am Roses Color Challenge.  You can get all of the details over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog.  You can also check out a quick video of my card HERE.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I can't wait to see what you will create! HUGS :)
