IC216 ~ Echo

Here is my card for the Inspirational Challenge #216 on SCS today. I picked the Heraldic Hobo as my inspiration you can see it here. The purse is a little loud for me, but I do like it. Bright colors -- Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, and Mambo Melon -- not my norm, but this is a challenge right? I guess Stampin' UP! In-Colors are really the "In" colors for the season. I also liked the way it seemed striped but not really. The white stripe between the colors and the chocolate trim seem to tame these bright colors -- to an extent. I am not sure that a butterfly would go with this purse, but I thought my card was more whimsy than the purse -- so a butterfly was the perfect addition.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Dreams du Jour (for the inside)
Paper: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Mambo Melon, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Inks: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Mambo Melon, Chocolate Chip
Extras: Chocolate ribbon, Butterfly, pencil eraser.
Here is the inside:

Cori, you rocked this challenge! And you're right- the white and chocolate chip do tone down the bright colors.
