Gfits of Kindness CCMC304

This week we have a color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary; I wasn't sure at first what I would do with this color combination but really fell for it after I started to work with it! These are soft and lovely colors together: Soft Sky, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray!


I used my Gifts of Kindness set for the first time, stamping the image with Basic Gray onto Soft Sky cardstock then embossing it with  the Polka Dot TIEF.  I stamped the flowers a second time on scrap cardstock then punched out two flowers using the flower in the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and added them to the center of the largest two flowers.


I embossed a 1-1/2" x 4-7/8" strip of Sahara Sand cardstock with the Scallops TIEF, tied on a bow then adhered it to the card.  A little floral butterfly was added to the scallop strip and small Pearls were added to the body as well as the floral image.


The sentiment from Friendly Phrases was stamped on a banner with a smaller Basic Gray banner behind.  I was very pleased with the way it turned out and really like these colors together!

Stamps:  Gifts of Kindness, Friendly Phrases, Papillon Potpourri
Inks:  Basic Gray
Paper:  Basic Gray, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky
Accessories:  Embossing Folders:  Scallops, Polka Dot; Soft Sky Seam Binding Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Glue Dots, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Here's the color scheme challenge for this week from Create with Connie and Mary:

I love how you stamped first and then embossed. And I really like how you placed 2 embossed panels side by side. Such a lovely card, Margaret!

Love the way you've managed to mix the textures and pattern of the flower stamp to such great effect here. A really pretty card.
