This week's walk through the meadow continues with a Winter Meadow.   The designer series paper (DSP) pattern on this card is one of my favorites from the Winter Meadow DSP Collection.

When I look at the monochromatic scene on this paper a feeling of calm and peacefulness washes over me.  If you are a "simple stamper", all you really need to do after you adhere this DSP to a card front is add a sentiment and send it on its way.

But you know me.  I like to jazz things up a little.  However, I wanted to maintain the calm and peaceful feeling and did not want to detract from the beauty of the paper.

I used two different dies from the Magical Meadow dies and die cut a stem from Moody Mauve and Pebble Path.  After adhering the stems directly to the card front, I added a few Moody Mauve dots to the berries on one of the stems to provide a little sparkle.  

The sentiment is from the Magical Meadow Stamp Set.  To set it off I used four short pieces of Pebbled Path and Moody Mauve Textured Ribbon.  I unraveled about one half inch on each piece of ribbon to make a fringe, and then adhered it to the back of the sentiment so only the fringe was showing.  This ribbon frays easily, so this was a quick and simple way to add some additional softness to the card front.

For the sentiments on inside of the card, I used Christmas Stamps from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set.  That easily turned the card into my Christmas Card for the week.  Since the Winter Wishes sentiment on the card front is somewhat generic, you could certainly choose non-Christmas Stamps to make it a "Just Because" card.  The stem on the inside of the card was stamped with Moody Mauve Ink.  Moody Mauve is an excellent choice to coordinate with Pebbled Path.  It adds a little color, but still retains the calm, peaceful feel of the card.

What do you think of this color combination?  Both Pebbled Path and Moody Mauve are from the 23 - 25 In-Color Collection which means they coordinate, but they aren't necessarily a combination I would have naturally put together.
