Purple calm.

 PPA224 Oct 16

Clean and Simple is the type of card that does me well. However, I am not very good at making a one layer card, so I must work hard to get a clean looking card without going too crazy on the layers.

The answer for this riddle for me is to keep the colors to a minimum, and almost monochromatic. In today's card I decided on the purple hue, using Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant. The sketch came from the Pals Paper Players challenge 224. The Bordering Blooms had the right pattern that I was looking for and the Pleasant Poppies finished it all up with a perfect elegance.
