Color Challenge Meets Paper Players



The Paper Players Challenge has a great CAS sketch this week, so I paired it with the Color Challenge on SCS to create a 70th anniversary card for an aunt and uncle. I built a plaid background with the 3 main CC colors: Watermelon Wonder, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry (dessert option is to add green).  The happy die was cut 3 times and layered up to create more dimension.  I took some liberty with the 'any shape' element and went with a floral collage instead of a single shape.  Once again, my mighty MISTI came to the rescue and made it easy to line up the sentiment via the grid lines and then allowed me to stamp it twice to get a crisper image.

STAMPS: Mini Modern Blooms (MFT), Plaid BG Builder (MFT), Wet Paint (PTI).
INK: Watercolor Wonder, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Memento Tuxedo Black.

Oh so beautiful Wanda. I love the colors and how nice the stamped and die cut flowers look nested together.
