Marjorie's Color Challenge #10...

This card is for Marjorie's Color Challenge #10. The challenge was to use the colors Topiary, Buttercup, Kiwi, & Citrus Leaf. I decided I would add black to make my card POP!!! :D This card was inspired by a card that Rohla on SCS made. I started out with a 5" x 10" piece of White Daisy CS folded in half. I then cut a 4 3/4" piece of Topiary TCS to matte on my base and then a 4 1/2" piece of Buttercup CS to matte on the Topiary. I used my Rustic Flowers stamp set and random stamped onto a piece of White Daisy CS and added two black brads to the center of the two larger flowers. I then stamped the word WISH in Brilliance Graphite Black ink on the random stamped CS. I got the new CB Swiss Dots folder today and could not wait to use it. I ran a piece of Kiwi TCS through my CB and used my corner punch to make the scalloped edge and then I added black stitched ribbon to finish it off.

Stamps: Rustic Flowers & Card Commentary (CTMH) Paper: White Daisy, Topiary, Buttercup, & Kiwi CS (CTMH) Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black Ink, Topiary, Sunny Yellow, Kiwi & Citrus Leaf (CTMH) Other: Black Brads (Spare Parts), Black Stitch Ribbon (CTMH), CB, Corner Punch


Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D

I love this! I've used my Rustic Flowers once - it's like I don't "get" the stamp. But I love how you've done this - I have to try something like it!
