Just Believe CCMC141 Color Challenge

The challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary is a color challenge using Real Red, So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Whisper White using all Stampin' Up! products.  I was also inspired by the sketch at Utah Divas International (I turned the inside portion on it's side). This is what I came up with:

The base card is Crumb Cake then Real Red embossed scallops behind So Saffron Designer Series Paper from the Play Date DSP package.  The scallops were diecut with the Big Shot and the Tasteful Trims die which has a number of various trim strips to choose from.
The flower is made by punching Real Red with the Fancy Flower XL Punch, a So Saffron DSP flower with the Fun Flower L Die and the So Saffron cardstock flower with my 5 Petal Flower XL Punch.  The Crumb Cake circle and Red Glitter Paper centers were both diecut with the Fun Flower Die also.  Love that glitter paper!  It totally eliminates any scattered glitter so I don't have it on my face and clothes when I finish a project, lol!
The sentiment is from the Just Believe set, which is so popular because of it's versatility.  It is stamped on Crumb Cake with Real Red, then punched with the Curly Label Punch and  layered on four Whisper White half punchouts of the same punch and adhered to the back.  I added a Rhinestone which I colored with a red sharpie marker.

For the ribbon under the flower I layered the 1/8" Real Red Taffeta ribbon over the satin middle of the 5/8" White Organza Ribbon.  To carry the color scheme to the inside of the card, I used a strip of Real Red "reverse" scallops along the bottom; it dresses it up a bit, making it more special for the recipient, I believe.

Hope you had a nice weekend!  I finally got my taxes in to the preparer and breathed a big sigh of relief!  Now I can work on my classes and workshop samples;  translate:  STAMP!!  YAY!!

Thanks for looking!  Hope to see you here again soon!
