The colors in this paper are so luscious... Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive, Early Espresso, etc. I'm so happy that Calypso Coral with be sticking around for awhile because it has become one of my favorite colors! I paired the paper with Sahara Sand which looked perfect with the paper's vintage-y background, and added a layer of Old Olive which coordinated more closely with the muted green of the flower leaves.
On the right is the sketch for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge 249 this week:
I cut the vintage tea advertisement from the Designer Paper using an Apothecary Accent Framelit then mounted it onto a Sahara Sand layer, hand-cut that to match then sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. Next I added the layers to go underneath (the printed ones from the Tea for Two DSP), embossing the Old Olive layer with the Stripe Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
The card base is Sahara Sand, cut 4-1/4" x 11" and folded in half. Then a 4" x 5-1/4" layer of Sahara Sand was embossed using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder in the Big Shot, sponged with Soft Suede, then attached to the card base. The final touches were a swath of Old Olive ribbon around the front, a Flower Trim rose tinted with a Sponge Dauber and Calypso Coral, and a number of Pearls.
