Hello Lovely Flower CCMC292

Today we have a lovely color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary using Pistachio Pudding, Summer Starfruit and Basic Black. 

The banner was cut from the Sweet Sorbet DSP print using the largest Banner Framelit ; a strip of Summer Starfruit ribbon was added off-center.  The card base is Pistachio Pudding cardstock layered with Whisper White edged on the right side with the Pistachio ruffled ribbon before adding the top layer of Basic Black.

I used the Spiral Flower Die for the large flower; after assembling, I layered it onto a flower punched with the Fancy Flower Punch from the same paper (I curled the edges a little with a bone folder before adding the Spiral Flower).  The leaves were punched from black and tucked under the flower. 

Stamps:  Hello Lovely
Ink:  Basic Black and Summer Starfruit Markers
Paper:  Summer Sorbet and SoHo Subway DSP; Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Basic Black cardstocks
Tools:  Big Shot, Spiral Flower Die, Little Leaves Sizzlit, Banner Framelit, Decorative Label Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, Bird Builder Punch (leaves). 
Accessories:  Basic Pearls, Summer Starfruit 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon, Pistachio Pudding Ruffled Ribbon, Mono Multi Adhesive.

Here again is the color challenge this week:

What an interesting color combination. Your card is so pretty. I really like that you used black for the leaves. The leaves guide the eye right to the pretty rose.
