Playful Petals



Oh, what a beautiful morning...oh, what a beautiful day! Can't you just hear those strains from the musical? Betty's color challenge on SCS was to use Lovely Lilac, Gable Green, & Cameo Coral with the dessert option to use clear CS. I had a new pack of clear CS and have never used it...I'm anxious to see what all my fellow stampers come up with! The card base is 5 inches square. I embossed a smaller square of white using the textile EF. I colored the image with Copics, added some bling and a MS border & ribbon (free from Ellen Hutson with a recent order I made). The layout was a sketch by Mercy Kerin...play along on her blog 'Lord Have Mercy'.

STAMPS: Playful Petals (SU)
PAPER: Lovely Lilac, Gable Green, White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: MS Floral Band border punch, Satin ribbon, Adhesive rhinestones, Copic sketch markers, CB, Textile EF

This is such a pretty way to use these colors.. I have not been able to upload a card to SCS for 2 days.. Frustrating.. I have to have my fix. LOL.. Great way to use these colors.. I love the clear card. I have not made one of those in so long.. Super job..

this is another gem wanda-you have done a fab job with both challenges-your ribbon & bow are so pretty-I didnt have any in the colors we were to use today-hard to imagine with all the supplies I have (lol)- so I left the ribbon out
