Vintage Floral Wallpaper Photo Challenge

Hello! When I started challenges on my blog a year ago it was meant to be temporary and the time has come for the challenges to end. I really appreciate everyone who played along and shared their talent over the last year. It's been a lot of fun viewing your work and getting to know you. The final challenge is a photo of some Vintage Floral Wallpaper from an office building where I once worked. The colors are a nice transition into fall and could easily be used in a masculine design. For my card I stuck with the floral theme and used the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary for my layout.

The Stampin' Up! colors used are:
  • Smoky Slate
  • Night of Navy
  • Cajun Craze
  • Marina Mist
  • Whisper White
This challenge will run until Saturday, September 13th at Noon (CT). Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your card in the gallery!
