Hi everyone! I took a small break today from redoing my boy's play room while they are with my mom this week! I'll take a couple pics to post, but it is BRIGHT! I painted the walls Green Galore and Ballet Blue (anyone else think in terms of SU or PTI colors?)!! I seriously thought my sister was going to PASS OUT when I opened the paint can -LOL!! The accents are all Yo-yo Yellow and Real Red -FUN FUN FUN!
Anyway, on to my challenge card. This is for Dawn's Raspberry Color challenge #15. The colors this week were Spring Moss, Melon Berry, Pink Hibiscus and cream. By now, I have almost all the PTI colors in cardstock, but very little in ink or DP. So I found that a way to get custom DP is to emboss the cardstock in clear! Presto!
This card uses the dotted background from Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds. I stamped it on Melon Berry and embossed it in clear. I used it as a strip at the bottom and used the smallest blossom dies on it too. The bloom on the left has a circle of cream that I distressed a bit and randomly dragged the edges in versamark and also embossed in clear.
I stamped the stems and leaves with Verve's Thankful Blossoms set (my go to for these!) and the sentiment is from Verve's Fluttering By. The center buttons and Kaiser pearls are from Heidi's store (Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts).
Oh and P.S. see the embroiderary floss I used on the buttons? I made a total SCORE at the Goodwill yesterday and found an entire craft box filled with different colors for $2!! Woot!
Before I head back to the playroom, I wanted to mention that Verve's Project Parade is going on right now! Stop by and see what the Divas have cooked up as a Hostess Gift! Thanks for stopping by, see you later in the week.
