A Lovely Flower Thank You



This is my card for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #42! I know!!! Can you believe it!!! I actually had a chance to make a card on the first night of the challenge and not at the last minute!!! Usually my name is one of the last on this challenge!! Not this time!!! WOOO HOOOO!! Anyway! I really needed some stamping therapy, so here is my card.... the colors this week were more mustard, really rust, kiwi kiss, and whisper white! Great combo right! I fell in love with kiwi kiss all over again!!!



I used two stamps sets this time! For the swirls, I used Baroque Motifs and for the saying, I used Short & Sweet. I used card stock in all of the colors from the challenge. I used Kiwi Kiss classic ink. For the ovals I used Spellbinders ovals on my Sizzix machine. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug on the whisper white oval. I must love this folder! I have been using it a lot lately! I created the flower using the 1 3/8", 1 1/4", and the 1" circle punches along with the cutter kit to age the edges. I did trim the inner circle a bit because I wanted to see the more mustard a bit more. I also used a kiwi kiss button and dimensionals to make it pop.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!

These flowers are just too cute!!!!! You make them so perfect! The leaves are the ultimate finishing piece. I HAVE to make some of these. This card should be a top 10! The oval nestabilites are great too.

Woot! I know this girl! She makes awesome cards!!!
