Paint The Town Challenge {Market Street Stamps}

It's time for another Paint the Town challenge at Market Street Stamps!

I can honestly say I struggled with what to create for this color challenge. I love the color palette, but I had no idea where to take it. I decided to pull out the colors of solid cardstock that I thought matched it best and I pulled out a few embellishments in the same palette.

I used the new Grace background stamp as the star of the show.
{My jaw literally dropped when I saw this stamp. It is gorgeous!}

The "JOY" sentiment on the mini ticket is from the new Essential Holiday Elegance stamp set (I masked it from the "Comfort & Joy" sentiment).

Thank you for dropping by today...and don't forget to play along in the challenge!
