One card, two challenges | GDP034 and PPA229

For my post today I am sharing a card that was inspired by 2 challenges this week.

The Global Design Project #034 - Sketch Challenge and the Pals Paper Arts #229 - Colour Challenge.

To make my card I have used the colours from the Pals Paper Arts #229 colour challenge of Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz and Gold, and the layout was inspired by the Global Design Project #034 sketch challenge.

Here is my card:

I started with a Whisper White card base, and stamped the retired Hello, Doily background stamp in Pink Pirouette. The "just for you" sentiment is from the 2016 Sale-A-Bration Botanicals for You set and was stamped on top in Pear Pizzazz.

The touches of Gold were added by gluing on 3 Gold sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment, a small strip of some metallic Gold curling ribbon I had lying around and some Gold washi tape from the retired Watercolor Wonder set.

This colour combination makes this a nice soft card for any occasion.

Here is a list of the supplies and tools used to create this card:
