Welcome to this month's Stampers Dozen blog hop! This month we are focusing on a color challenge: Flirty Flamingo, Marina Mist (retiring) and Old Olive. I am quite sad to be losing Marina Mist as this is a blue that I use often but I am thrilled that Flirty Flamingo is not retiring, but joining the Brights color family in the new catalog!!
When I first saw this color combination I was stumped as to how I was going to use all the colors together, but then I spied the Jar of Love stamp set that I haven't used in a long time and knew it would be perfect.
I stamped the foliage first, then filled in with some flowers for background. I added three cut flowers to give some dimension. The "Hello" sentiment was cut out using the washi tape framelet from the Wood Crate pack and while I had my Big Shot out I added texture to the marina mist card stock using the Garden Trellis embossing folder.
Here is one more view of my card. I finished it up by adding a knot of the 1/4" whisper white organza ribbon from the Occasions catalog. The card base is flirty flamingo card stock. Easy-peasy and I love how it turned out! For more inspiration with this color challenge be sure to follow along to the next stop on this blog hop. Thanks and have a great week!
