We had a really relaxing weekend, one we haven't had in quite a while.
I woke up with a bit of a sore throat this morning and opted to not go out today.
So, we camped out in the craft room and just relaxed. I came across a really fun color challenge over at Sunday Stamps. I usually don't do color challenges but this summer I stocked up on card stock so I am getting braver doing these types of challenges http://sundaystamps.blogspot.com/2014/11/ssc89-its-all-plum.html
Here is their challenge- Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Very Vanilla.
This is what I came up with;
I love the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. The images make great backgrounds. The stripes, dots and splotches are really fun to work with.
Here is a look at the inside;
I used both inks and card stock in Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum. Plus a little Garden Green on the stem and leaves and Very Vanilla for the card base. I chose a floral image from the Hostess set called Bloom with Hope for my focal image and the sentiment. The inside sentiment is from the Really Good Greetings stamp set. The Plum Butterfly was made from the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I tied a bow with some Wisteria Wonder Bakers Twine and wrapped it around the focal image a few times. Pretty Basic Pearls added some additional softness and interest to the card.
That's it from me today. I hope you give this challenge a try it took a bit of thought and preparation but, the result is a very pretty.
