Morning Glory - PDCC48

It's Sunday night and I'm trying to squeak out every last bit of the weekend. Instead of going to bed early, I chose to create this card for the Play Date Cafe color challenge 48!  I'm such a night owl anyway, but get me going on my stamping and card creating and it's hard to stop - even if tomorrow begins the work week again!

Here's the challenge inspiration photo that Julie Ranae chose and that the colors were picked from.  I have to say that would be a fun kitchen to cook in - but I'm partial to brighter, intense color anyway.  So I was inspired right away to use Concord Grape, Pear Pizzazz and Going Gray as my color pallette for the challenge card.

I also couldn't wait to ink up this Morning Glory stamp from Papertrey Ink - it just arrived in the mail yesterday.  When I think of a Morning Glory flower, I think of a purpley-blue color and thought it would be perfect. 

The card design/layout is mine - just wanted something unique for this card.  So tell me what you think...

Thanks for stopping by!
