Happy Blooming Birthday! CCMC312

It's time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  This week we have a beautiful color combination to create with:  Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Sahara Sand!



For this card I used not one but two flower sets,  Petite Petals for the punched-out flowers and Flower Patch for the sentiment and Sahara Sand flowers in the background.

The card base is Hello Honey (8.5"x 5.5", folded), layered with a 4" x 5.25" piece of Blackberry Bliss then topped with a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the white cardstock with Sahara Sand using the Gorgeous Grunge dots stamp across the card plus two solid medium and two small flowers from Flower Patch set. 

Next, I stamped the greeting in Blackberry Bliss first then again with Hello Honey slightly offset to the first stamping.  Then I used a great shape from the Apothecary Accents Framelits to diecut the greeting and a second diecut in Blackberry Bliss.  I cut that apart horizontally then adhered it to the back of the greeting layer where just a thin border of the Blackberry was showing.



On Whisper White I stamped several flowers of both Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss using stamps from the Petite Petals set.  I immediately took a Blender Pen and dragged some of the color out onto the petals to give them all-over color.  These were attached with Glue Dots and several with Dimensionals.  Lastly I added medium-size pearls from the Basic Pearls pack.  I was happy how this turned out; I just love these flower sets!

Here again is the CCMC312 Color Challenge this week:

I love how you combined the 2 stamp sets and used the sahara sand "flower" as a background for the smaller flowers. Beautiful!
