Secret Garden Hello!

It is time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Thursday!  Today we have Color Challenge CCMC270 consisting of Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Bermuda Bay!

I know, I know, this isn't a fall card!  I've been making so many fall projects lately (and I LOVE FALL!) that I decided to take a break from those and do something different using these colors.  Well, I thought and thought then chose the Secret Garden set and framelits for flowers!

I stamped the two line-art stamps and clear embossed them.  Next I used my AquaPainter filled with alcohol and colored them.  I did a second center for the Bermuda Bay  flower and layered it. The Crushed Curry was stamped off before stamping then I added some shading with the AquaPainter.

Here you can see the close-up detail.  Three tiny Pearls center each flower; I colored the Pearls for the Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry flowers with my AquaPainter (alcohol) and ink; the Pearls were left original for the Bermuda Bay flower.

Crushed Curry 3/4" Chevron Ribbon encircles the Chevron-embossed card front.  The "Hello" sentiment is from Lacy and Lovely stamp set which is stamped on the banner.  Here you can also get a glimpse of the inside that is decorated with two line-art flowers and a length of "ric-rac" diecut with the Tasteful Trim XL die.

Here again are the colors for this week's challenge from Create with Connie and Mary:

Love this, Margaret! I think it kinda has a fresh look for fall. So pretty.

I know you weren't trying for a fall look, but I love this combination of flower colors! So pretty on the chevron embossed background! Great job with the color challenge last week!
