Pink, Brown and White Challenge

Today's Blogger's Challenge #134 is to use Pink, Brown and White as the color scheme for one's project.  I love that combo anyway so it was fun to do.  For my card I used Stampin' Up! colors of Soft Suede, Melon Mambo and Whisper White with a touch of Old Olive.

I used the new Vintage Vogue set again plus the new coordinating Very Vintage wheel, both from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  The wheel was done in the same Soft Suede color as the cardstock so it was tone-on-tone, giving subtle texture to the design.

I used Stampin' Up!'s new clear-mount stamps which made placement a breeze to line up  the Old Olive garland stamp several times across the width of the white panel.  I'm loving those clear-mounts!  Another tool  I'm enjoying is the new Scallop Trim Border punch, which you see on the Melon Mambo layer horizontal across the card.  This punch is available as a FREE Sale-A-Bration product with a $50. purchase.  What a beautiful effect it gives!  Several stamped flowers cut out and applied to the design as well as a swath of Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon with a small knot complete the design.design.


Stamps:  Vintage Vogue; Very Vintage Wheel
Ink:  Old Olive, Soft Suede, Melon Mambo
Paper;  Soft Suede, Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Paper Snips, Scallop Trim Border punch, Clear Mount Blocks, brad, Soft Suede Grosgrain Ribbon
