Spring Flowers and Butterfly! CCMC344

Today we have Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge #344!  It's a lovely combination of Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red and Blushing Bride!  I suspect that Mary was influenced by the Artisan Embellishment Kit in the Occasions Catalog for this combo, lol!, because these are the colors used in this kit!

I began with a standard 5.5" x 4.25" folded card of Rose Red cardstock and layered it with Blackberry Bliss.  Next the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF for short) was sponged with the three challenge colors and spritzed  lightly with water.  Then I put the white cardstock layer in it and rubbed it well with my fingers (I did not run it through the Big Shot).  This gives a soft multicolored Spring Flowers background for the card. 

The Blackberry Bliss Butterfly was adhered with Glue Dots.  The Rose Red Crochet Trim from the Artisan Embellishment Kit was "threaded" it with the narrow and lush Blackberry Bliss Velvet Ribbon;  I attached this with Fast Fuse Adhesive which holds it wonderfully well!  The "Happy Day" sentiment is from the Cheerful Critters set  and the small flowers from the Something to Say set.

Stamps:  Something to Say, Cheerful Critters
Inks:  Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red, Blushing Bride
Paper:  Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red, Blushing Bride
Accessories:  Fast Fuse Adhesive, Glue Dots, Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch set, Artisan Embellishment Kit, Spring Flowers TIEF, Sponges, Basic Pearls, Ticket Punch, Butterflies Thinlits Dies, Big Shot.

Margaret, your card is beautiful and the background is so soft and pretty. What a great technique and one I will try. I love that it can be done without using the Big Shot.

Ha...I totally didn't even think of using that kit for this color challenge! Gorgeous card, Margaret! Great job with the color challenge this week!

Love the effect of the sponging of colors onto the TIEF. Very dainty and pretty! Love how you weaved the velvet ribbon through the lace ribbon...very pretty!

WOW!!! Amazing card, so many wonderful details. I really love your background, such a great idea to layer the colors over the embossing folder.
