CCMC294 Petal Parade

It's time for another Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!  This time we have a beautiful color challenge for you!  Of course, with the bright pink and green, I had to go with flowers…don't you think?  But, I'm amazed at what the Challenge Team did for us over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Check it out!

I used the Sale-a-Bration set, Petal Parade for my card, combined with the In Color Patterns Paper.  I thought it sort of looked like a trellis behind the flowers!

Here are the details:

  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White, folded in half.
  2. I added a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Strawberry Slush In Color Patterns Designer Paper Pack.
  3. On a 3 3/4 x 2 1/4 piece of Whisper White, I stamped the flowers in Strawberry Slush and Old Olive inks randomly.  I layered it on a 3 7/8 x 2 3/8 piece of Basic Black cardstock and popped it up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. I stamped the arrows with Old Olive Ink in a line across a 3/4" x 5 1/4 strip of Old Olive cardstock and adhered it across the top portion of the card.
  5. I stamped the flower with Strawberry Slush Ink on Whisper White, then cut it with the Starburst Framelit.  The Rhinestone Jewel is supposed to be in the MIDDLE of the flower…it must have gotten knocked off and I didn't notice!  lol!
  6. I layered the flower on a 1 3/8" circle of Basic Black cardstock and placed on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  7. I stamped Thinking of You from Teeny Tiny Wishes on a 1/2" strip of Strawberry Slush and tucked it under the circle.

Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Then, grab your stamps and play along!

Love your card and this week's colour combo; hoping to have a go with this one myself this week (last week I just ran out of time!).

I really like this stamp set, but once I got it…I could not think of a thing to do with it!  Love what you have done.  Very springy!

I had to laugh at the rhinestone! I was wondering why it was off to the side! I hate it when that happens! Beautiful card, Connie! I really love how you used the stamp set! Great layout!!

You and I were on the same page with the trellis idea. I thought the same thing for my card. And I thought you intentionally put the rhinestone to the side. I like that look!

So funny about the rhinestone, I had to go back and look. It actually looks fine the way it is! Love what you did with this stamp set!
