Card Challenge, PPA92 & PDC80

Today my card is a color challenge from Pals Paper Arts (PPA92). I had to hurry up too. It's due tomorrow, May 10th (my birthday.) And since the colors are very close to Play Date Cafe's colors, I'm also going enter my card with that happy site. Play Date Cafe is a HUGE challenge each week. PDC colors are White, Poppy and Harvest Gold. So Green is my neutral here, and white is my neutral for PPA.
I knew I wanted to make a card for our pastor, he has decided to move on with his life. So I think I've made a nice one. I'm expecting my husband to write a lovely message.

I cut for a six inch square card with lots of background layers from the colors selected by PPA. The colors were Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade! I tried to keep as close to colors as I could. The Peach color is looking more orange than it should...I'll just blame that on a digital something or other.

Three circles for the label. A 2.5" round punch, 3" scallop punch and Spellbinders largest "Lacy Circle". Rust and Brown Colorbox Chalk for a little shading and lots of pop up tape. All of the papers come from various DCWV paperstacks.

All of the embellishments come from Oriental Trading. I glued together layers of the white flowers and glued pearls to the centers. A Beaded stick pin (with a drop of glue) is threaded through the Butterfly spring. The pearl string is taped down, and the flowers are applied with pop up tape. The little Butterflies stick into the pop up tape.

I'm quite happy with this card and I thank you for the visit.
