CCMC199 – Rue Des Fleurs

It's Thursday and time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  This week we have a color challenge for you using one of the retiring In Colors…Peach Parfait!  It will help you use up some of that stock that you have on hand! 


I haven't used Stampin' Up!'s Rue Des Fleurs stamp set much, but I do like it…very different style than the one I normally use!  It is in the Occasions Mini Catalog that ends on April 30th, so don't delay getting it!   I thought it paired nicely with this color combination! 



I started with a base of Peach Parfait cardstock.  I layered on Night of Navy polka dot Patterns Designer Paper.  I made a bow from the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon and secured the ends behind the DSP.  I cut the Label Framelit from Sahara Sand and used Finial Press Impressions Folder (it is RETIRING!  Oh no!) on it.  Then I cut another Label of Very Vanilla and stamped the corset from Rue Des Fleurs in Night of Navy Classic Ink.  I added a bit of color with the Peach Parfait Stampin' Write Marker on the flowers and added Pearls along the sides of the Label.  Before I placed it on the card, I added a pennant of Night of Navy cardstock between the Labels to make it pop!  Finally, I stamped Thanks from this same stamp set in Night of Navy along the bottom.


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Then grab your Stampin' Up! stamps and play along!

What a unique layout Connie!  Love the banner behind the focal image and the way you've colored the flowers!
