Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge

I *love* the color combination for the newest color challenge over at Gingersnap Creations: Turquoise, Blue, and Purple.  I chose to take the colors all soft and vintagey for my card, to go with my vintage image.  I also wanted to keep with the Gal Pal theme, so I chose this lovely retro lady writing a letter to a distant friend, with a sentiment that goes along quite nicely, I think. :)  The papers are ancient - from my stash - some My Mind's Eye, I believe.  I added a bit of crinkled seam binding and a little pin that I crafted from a pearl bead and rhinestone rondelle.  The panels are cut with Spellbinder's Nestabilities.  The images are both from Viva Las VegaStamps - "Lady Writing" and "The Heart Knows No".

Be sure to check out all of the fabulous creations of the DT members over at Gingersnap Creations.  I hope you'll play along... there is blog candy to be had this month! ;)
