It's Working Again
Hooray! I was able to upload photos from my camera to my computer late last night, so here is the photo of my "color-challenge" card. I used Apricot Appeal for the card base, and added layers of Rose Red and Blush Blossom. I used my photo corners punch and scallop circle punch to add accents with Always Artichoke, Cameo Coral and Close to Cocoa. I did a little bit of stamping on the Apricot card stock using Close to Cocoa ink. In fact, all of the stamping, with the exception of the flower stem, was done with Close to Cocoa ink. I stamped the flower stem with Always Artichoke ink. I used my blender pen to color the flowers using Rose Red and Cameo Coral ink pads. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the centers of the flowers and the dot over the "i" in "Good Thing" with my 2-way glue pen. The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals, and so is the flower on the lower right-hand corner of the card. I finished off the card with a bow I made with the Caramel gingham ribbon, and some flowers from the Accents and Elements Flower Fusion tin, which I added a Fire Rhinestone Brad to the center. This card looks much better in real life. You can't see all the dimension in the photo... I'd love to see what you all come up with using these same colors. Leave me a comment or shoot me an email with a link to your card, and I'll post the link here on my blog. Have a great day!
