Well, it's Tuesday already and this is my first post of the week! I was looking around for a challenge to do, because I know you all MISS me posting, right? I came across a pretty color combination from The Paper Players…and then a very neat sketch from Mojo Monday! I don't know when was the last time I played along with Mojo Monday!
And here is my card using the combination of both challenges!
Yes, I made up some more of my Flower Fest stamp poinsettias! Funny how changing the colors out on the card and a few details can make the card look totally different! (If you want to see the last one I did with Poinsettias…you can see it HERE!) On this one I started with a base of Always Artichoke and layered on River Rock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Stripes Impressions Folder. I lightly sponged River Rock Classic Ink across the raised areas for a weathered panel look. I added the front layers of Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla according to the sketch. I stamped Merry Christmas from Stampin' Up!'s Christmas Greetings stamp set in Always Artichoke on the front and added a stripe of Red Glimmer Paper. I also punched along the bottom with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch.
The Flower Fest flowers were stamped in Riding Hood Red and Always Artichoke and then punched with the 5 petal punch. I added pearls to the centers, then popped them up on the front of the card. I like the simple elegance of this one!
