So, I cringed and then tried to find a beautiful dsp that would distract from the Burgundy.
I LOVE this! It's way out of my normal style - I don't tend toward dsps unless they are a subtle monochromatic print or come from Stampin' Up so they perfectly coordinate. I definitely don't use big bold prints and I never put a color in that is not in the dsp. There's no burgundy in that dp. But now that I have it done, I can't imagine any other color for the butterfly or bottom layer.
So...flushed with success...I tried another card using another dsp that I had run across on my search for the above card.
This may start a trend for me!! Actually, probably not. We all have our style - and while it is very enjoyable to branch out sometimes, I always go back to a clean, simple, solid-cardstock-based cards.
