This is my card for this weeks CC464 challenge. Sallie is our hostess and she chose basic gray, pumpkin pie and primrose petals. Our dessert option is to create a background and she left it up to us to decide what.
My background is done with the wax paper resist technique. I used the Cuttlebug folder “kassie’s brocade” and embossed the wax paper. Then I placed it over my cardstock and used my iron to transfer the embossing. Sponging was done with primrose petals and pumpkin pie ink. Not sure why the pumpkin looks like yellow??
I used the memory box die “Chloe Stems” and cut my 3 flowers. Added some Primrose petals ribbon and a primrose dahlia center.
The love word was cut with an Impression Obsession die “love heart” and added it to a pennant cut with a Spellbinders die.
That’s my card for this week. Hope you can play along. You may be our next CC fave of the week. And your card will be posted on our new color challenge Pinterest board. Check it out here.

Mary these die cuts are perfect for these bold colors. Love your BG - I'm inspired to try that technique. I hate when a color looks so different in a photo than when you are working with it. Sigh...this is lovely anyway. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and for your patience with me. Stay warm!
