Best Blossoms

Best Blossoms cu06190
Since I didn’t have a chance to do the Color Challenge (CC527) on Splitcoast yesterday, I’m combining it with the Sketch Challenge (SC537) today. When I started out, I wasn’t sure I would be able to work these colors but I found one piece of a sand card stock which is a dead ringer for the sahara sand. Other than white, that’s the only card stock I used. I white heat embossed the flowers & greeting on the sand card stock. On the flowers, I used Prismacolor pencils to add the other 2 colors…wasabi & pink.  For the sketch, I turned the square to better fit & the die cut border serves as my long horizontal panel.

After I die cut the sand card stock, I colored a narrow strip w/ a pink pencil & attached it behind the cut out to act as the ribbon element on the sketch. The flowers were fussy cut & attached on my square/diamond shape. I also used the pink pencil around the border of the sand layer & added a fussy cut butterfly.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Another totally great embossed beauty Julie. I am for sure going to be digging out my embossing stuff this weekend. I forget about it and then see something amazing like this and wonder how I forgot it. Love the colors, details, and images – a wonderfully put together card! Hugz
