Good Rainy Saturday morning! I just want to share with you today a card I made for a Color Me Beautiful Challenge.
These were the colors we are to use and to make any creation we want. I needed to make a card for my niece's 13th birthday and didn't have any ideas yet so I thought this could be my inspiration.
This never happens to me but I must have been thinking on it when I was sleeping because I woke up and knew exactly what I wanted to do.
Here is my finished product...nice and simple. I wish I had put the flower a little higher but, oh well. I used Calyso Coral as my base with a layer of More Mustard and then Very Vanilla. The Birthday Wishes is stamped in Always Artichoke using the stamp set Bring on the Cake. The leaves for the flower were die cut using the Big Shot and the Little Leaves sizzlet.
Now for some more details about the actual flower:
The three colors I used were Raspberry Ripple, Calypso Coral, and More Mustard. I wanted something really soft and pretty so I decided to have the petals be sueded. I punched out two 2 3/8" scalloped circles in Raspberry Ripple. Then I used the regular scalloped circle punch to punch out two in Calypso Coral and one in More Mustard. I then ran each scalloped circle through my crimper to get the paper nice and soft. After that, you peel each circle into two pieces.
