Lighthearted Colors!

It is Thursday which means it's time for our new challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!!  This week we have the color combination of Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride;  what a great color scheme!

  • I stamped my large Lighthearted leaf with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock then colored it in with the markers of the three challenge colors, leaving some spaces white, then diecut it with the matching Leaflet Framelit.  I love Framelits!  
  • I cut a banner from the 1-1/4" Jute Ribbon and applied it to the Watermelon Wonder background layer.
  • The Watermelon was then layered onto the 11 x 5.5" (folded in half) card base using Dimensionals.
  • I stamped the sentiment onto Blushing Bride cardstock with Black ink then cut the ends with the Hexagon Punch and attached this over the ribbon and Watermelon layer.
  • A Blushing Bride Candy Dot was added to the center of the scallop area at the base of the leaf
  • Two White Candy Dots were added in the upper-right corner and one added to the sentiment.

Stamps:  Lighthearted Leaves, Fabulous Four (sentiment)
Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride Markers
Paper:  Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White Cardstocks
Accessories:  Leaflets Framelits, White Jute Ribbon, Neutrals Candy Dots, Subtles Candy Dots, Dimensionals, Fast Fuse.

Here again is the color combination we are using this week at Create with Connie and Mary:

Love this set for colouring Margaret and your beautiful leaf would surely be the perfect pick-me-up. Looks gorgeous against the dark background with the jute ribbon too. Beautiful!

Oh wow! This leaf is GORGEOUS in these colors! It's probably the prettiest sample of this set I've seen! The jute ribbon and candy dots are fabulous embellishments as well!

That jute ribbon makes a great banner behind this lovely leaf! And the leaf looks awesome in this week's colors! Great idea!!
