Pure and Simple


I made these little cards as my submission for the Inspiration Avenue team's weekly challenge - the theme this week was "pure".

I wanted to use just really subdued tones, and I started by collecting some  objects together for inspiration -
 
Though I had to fight my natural impulse to add a touch of red or teal, I'm quite pleased with the end result!

Not sure yet whether I'll add these to my etsy shop; I may use them as "thank you" cards for my next couple of buyers instead :)

You can see all the other "Pure" submssions at the Inspiration Avenue blog
