Flower Medallion CCMC354

We have a colorful challenge today from Create with Connie and Mary composed of Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist and Gold!  I hope I can get this post done without losing power!  We have had severe storms including tornados here in Oklahoma City area today and even though they haven't impacted our immediate area, they have caused a lot of damage and now, due to unprecedented rain, we also have a widespread flooding emergency.  Lots of people are currently without power in Oklahoma City and surrounding counties!

I began with a card base of Whisper White and added a layer of Bermuda Bay diagonal strip designer paper to it.  Next I layered a smaller piece of Whisper White over Bermuda Bay and tucked three small circles punched from Gold Foil Paper o the upper right side.

The flower was created by punching out one layer of the Tangelo Twist dotted paper with the Flower Medallion Punch.  Next I stamped three more flowers with the coordinating flower stamp from Crazy about You set on the back of the Tangelo paper with dark ink then cut out each layer by hand with my trusty Paper Snips.  The layers were assembled with Glue Dots then topped with a Gold Metal button which had been tied with Gold Baker's Twine.  I cut a length of ribbon, attached that to the lower portion of the panel then added Gold Sequin Trim and then the flower with Dimensionals. 

Stamps: A Dozen Thoughts (sentiment).  Crazy about You (flower stamp)
Inks:  Basic Gray
Paper:  Whisper White, Bermuda Bay cardstocks; Confetti Celebration (flower) and Birthday Bash (stripes) Designer Series Paper, Gold Foil Paper
Accessories:  Flower Medallion Punch, Gold Sequin Trim, Gold Basic Metal Buttons, Gold Baker's Twine, White Jute Ribbon, Circle Punch, Glue Dots, Dimensionals.

Here is the color challenge this week from Create with Connie and Mary:

This is such a fun color combination!  Are you game to jump in and try your hand with it?  We hope so!  When you do, be sure to link it on the Connie and Mary blog for this challenge so we can see and drop by and leave you a comment too!

Thanks for visiting today!  Happy Stamping!
