Just Believe! Cajun and Pear

Welcome to the third day of our Just Believe! set series.  My hope to show some of the versatility of this lovely set this week!
I wanted to showcase the silhouette stamps on this card and use the new color Cajun Craze.  The new Color Coach was my go-to tool for this to give me ideas for a color scheme.  You'll love the totally new Color Coach!  It has so much larger chunks of color and you can fan the pages out to see and compare colors together!   There's even a couple of pages to add your own color schemes!  Check it out; I think you'll really like it and see how it you would benefit from it!

First I sponged Cajun Craze onto the lower part of a piece of Blushing Bride, then More Mustard was blended above that.  The large silhouette was then stamped twice in Cajun Craze and the smaller stems were stamped sparingly in Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment was added at the top in Cajun Craze and the right side torn off.  This was layered on Pear Pizzazz which has the bottom treated with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch and the right side torn also.  Pear Pizzazz ribbon was tied around for finishing.  This was all layered on a Cajun Craze card base.

Inside I added a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped a sentiment from Favorite Thoughts set (Summer Mini), which will not be available after today, August 31st. : (  Several stems were stamped in Pear Pizzazz to carry the design through to the inside for a finished look.

A stunning card, the colors are so beautiful. Love the torn edge and the scalloped bottom and ribbon, a beautifully put together card.

I love this color combination too, Margaret! This is a wonderful stamp set and to think we got it for 'free' at convention!
