A Flower for You


I did the color challenge today on Splitcoast Stampers. I improvised just a bit with the colors but think they worked really well. I didn't have the new Stampin'Up! colors yet so used some of the older ones. So glad that is allowed. My card was also made for Queen for the Day, another challenge on SCS. The Queen was Sallie aka hobbydujour. I used her sketch called Blossom for this card.




Stamps: Stampin'Up! Pretty Amazing and SU Trendy Trees for sentiment
Paper: SU Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, and white cs
Inked my flower with SU Perfect Plum
Punches used: SU oval and oval scallop, Martha Stewart Classic butterfly, MS Quilted punch
Sizzix die cut-Scribbles Swirls
RibbonFX

This is so pretty, Benzi!! I just love all of the wonderful punches you used on it. Like I said before, this combo kinda scared me, but I really like how they look together on your card! That ribbon is so pretty, too :)
