PDCC118, PTI Day 6

A papercrafter would have to be living under a rock in the deep recesses of a cave in the middle of a vast wilderness to not know that Papertrey Ink is celebrating its 5th anniversary with lots fabulous releases, challenges and huge giveaways!!
This card is made with sketch #2 from Papertrey Ink and the colors from the current Playdate Cafe Challenge.  Definitely colors that are out of my comfort zone but I've been trying lots of new things lately and, therefore, in the spirit of embracing "different" I decided to make my own background paper with oil pastels.
Cardstock, vellum and sentiment (LIFE from Poppy Prints) are from Papertrey.

I love your hand painted paper! It reminds me of some of the work by Georgia O'Keeffe. Blessings!
