This is my card for this week's CC487. Becky is our hostess and she chose soft sky, soft suede, pear pizzazz and crisp cantaloupe for our color palette. Dessert is to make a feminine card.
I just bought this Penny Black stamp this weekend at the Pittsburgh Rubber Stamp Show. And, I also just watched this tutorial on the Spellbinder blog by Linda Lucas using Labels 8 dies. So that was my card inspiration.
I used soft sky for my card base and cut it with the SB labels 8 die. The next layer is soft suede cut with the SB decorative labels 8 die. The image layer is cut with a smaller SB labels 8 die and I sponged in soft sky before I removed it from the die.
Stamped my coneflower image in crisp cantaloupe and pear pizzazz. My sentiment is stamped in soft suede and is from the Verve set "poppy birthday".
I used some rhinestones for a little bling and added a bow made from pear pizzazz seam binding.
That's my card for this week. Hope you can play along. You may be the next color challenge favorite and have your card featured on our very popular Color Challenge Pinterest board. See board here.
