Flower Patch Birthday CCMC318

Today we have a fun color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary featuring Hello Honey, Pool Party and Basic Gray.  I thought using horizontal banners would be a good way to combine these colors so I went from there!


I used a melange of stamps and papers for this card, lol!   I used the Tape It set for one of the banners, combined with other Designer Papers and cardstocks.  So nice that  you can count on having all these various products color coordinate!



The flower was stamped twice with the Flower Patch set and the second flower was hand-cut and layered.  The Pool Party flowers are from the same set, also diecut and the Petite Petals set and Punch for the smallest flowers. 

Stamps:  Flower Patch, A Dozen Thoughts (greeting), Tape It (houndstooth banner), Perfect Pennants (Hello Honey polka dot banner), Petite Petals.
Inks:  Hello Honey, Basic Gray, Pool Party and a touch of Calypso Coral
Paper:  Neutrals Designer Paper Stack, Moonlight Paper Stack, Pool Party, Basic Gray and Whisper White cardstock.
Accessories:  Basic Pearls, Flower Fair Framelits, Petite Petals Punch, 

What a cool combination, one I perhaps would never have thought up but very pretty together!  How about you joining us for the challenge this week?  Here are the colors again:

Love all of the fussy cutting you did on the large flower. All of those layers give it such wonderful dimension. You card is lovely.

Love the layered flower. Love all the different strips of paper or stamping. Love the addition of all the cute smaller flowers all around. Very feminine and pretty!
