Have you noticed the Cheerful Treat Designer Paper that is available in the current catalog as a Hostess selection? I love the colors of Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Bashful Blue, Positively Pink and Lucky Limeade in it! Sadly, Concord Crush will be leaving us soon... I will miss it greatly!
The card features "flag" strips of the Cheerful Treat Designer Paper topped with a flower.
I layered a punched flower from another print layered over a Melon Mambo flower; both were punched out with the popular Blossom Punch in the current Occasions Mini Catalog. The flower is centered with two smaller flowers punched with the useful BoHo Blossoms Punch and a pink Flower Brad. I colored a rhinestone from Stampin' Up!'s Rhinestone pack with a purple Sharpie Marker and added it to the center of the flowers brad for some sparkle.
The Concord Crush background layer was dry embossed with the Big Shot and the Flourish Texture Plate. This was layered onto a Bashful Blue card. I made this card for a swap with my demo group last Saturday; I love these colors and was happy with how it turned out.
Thanks for visiting! I'm finishing this up before the storm gets here tonight. We've already had tornadoes just south of Oklahoma City in Norman today and stronger storms are forecast for tomorrow! Yikes!
