Papercraft Star Challenge #61

     Our challenge this week at Papercraft Star is a color inspiration.  For my card I used a cream cardstock base with a navy mat.  I added a little machine stitching on the left side.  Next comes some punchwork in the same cream cardstock and a mat of beige K and Company Julianne collection DP.  I added some ruched seam binding, a Prima flower and a rolled rose with a pearl center.  The sentiment was printed from my computer onto the cream cardstock and matted with some of the blue and more cream.  The image is from the "Madonna and Child" digi file from our sponsor The House Across the Bay and is matted with the same cardstocks.
     We'd love to see what our color palette inspires you to make so get your projects linked up by 6:00 a.m. Monday morning for your chance at winning some amazing digital downloads from our wonderful sponsor.

Happy Wednesday!
