Do you get the sense that I enjoy challenges? Well, here are two more that inspired my card below. 

My card base is Smoky Slate, a mat of Wisteria Wonder, a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Avant Garden Sale-A-Bration set to make my patterned paper, an Elegant Eggplant rectangle, a Perfect Plum square and a Wisteria Wonder "circle". The ink colors I used were Basic Gray, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and Soft Sky. The square was a die from Stitched Shape Framelits. The "circle" die was cut from the Wisteria Wonder mat so I wouldn't waste paper! I used the smallest die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits set. I'm not sure what the washi tape is. The two end pieces are light gray and vanilla. If you recognize it, leave me a comment please. The 3 dots are White Perfect Accents. I think I used the entire color palette in the challenge!

Thanks for looking!
