This card is for a couple of challenges!!! First it is for today's inspiration challenge. Thanks Stef for the wonderful choices on the Kleenex boxes. I chose this one for my inspiration.

This card is also for yesterday's Limited Supplies Challenge(LSC217). We were to create a card inspired by the colors of a room in our home. Thanks, Jeanne for this cool challenge. I chose my living room which is painted Thunderbird by Benjamin Moore. It is really a soft sky or aqua mist color. I have chocolates, mochas, and blacks...with a few pops of reds. For my card, I tried to stay in the chocolate and aqua mist hues since those are the primary colors in my living room.

I am using ODBD set called The Cross of Christ. I used one piece of some new K & Co dp I picked up at Micheal's the other day. I thought this soft floral dp looked a lot like the print on the Kleenex box. I also created the piece of paper on the right using some background stamps. I tried to keep things limited so my embellishments are two brads and a piece of ribbon.
