Every month Deb Nolan hosts a card chain challenge - sign up on her blog and send a card to the person above you on the list - very fun and you meet lovely stampers from all over the world. There's also a prize randomly drawn every month. Actually, I started my Flickr page because of this challenge in 2009 so I'd have a place to post the cards I made. This month I'm sending a card to Deb - I used the colors from the challenge - gold, persimmon and deep iris. I did the watercolor background with PTI's "Harvest Berries" with distress inks and lots of water. Made another purple leaf, die cut and added on top with some gold sequins for berries.
