I'm on time! Amazing, isn't it? Today's blogger's challenge was to use pink and brown. I love those colors together! This card is actually Cameo Coral and Chocolate chip, but....close enough! I had made the card base a while ago and it had been sitting on my desk waiting for the inspiration to finish it. I made it with cameo coral for the base, a square of chocolate chip on top of that, and pieces of designer paper from the Apple Cider and Darling doodles packets. I stamped the big flower, words, little flowers, and the dotted borders with chocolate chip. To get the light and dark on the flowers, I colored parts with my M3 in coral and then chalked with the same color. The effect in person is great! I love how all the SU colors coordinate! The dots are from the Along the Same Lines stamp set. I layered a smaller flower on top of the big flower to give it some dimension and popped the smaller one up with some pop dots. I added some stickles to the flower centers, the outside edge of the big flower and all the swirly dots in the background. When I was done with all that....I stepped back and felt like it still needed a little something so I pulled out the sewing machine and added the stitched lines across the top. The funny thing is...the thread pulled out so I ended up using my white gel pen to make the actual stitch lines, faux! oh well.
This card was also inspired by Beate's Friday challenge. Take a look at all the great variations on her blog.
I'm busy getting swaps ready for leadership so....I'll share more later! Have a great day!
