Color Combo Conundrum

Never in a million years would I have put Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, Night of Navy and River Rock together on a card. BUT, never say never, because here it is!

In keeping with my "using up my scraps instead of putting them away" organizational plan, I used pieces of a card that we did at stamp camp a few months ago. The Cameo Coral color comes from the Ginger Blossom Designer Series paper which is acutally the REVERSE side of what we used at camp that month. The other side has River Rock polka dots on it, I think.

Anyway, I used stamps from Embrace Life to create the background on the Very Vanilla piece and to mimic the flower in the patterned paper for the focal image. Stamped in Basic Black and Markered in for color (I'm not a great watercolorer...) I sponged all the layers with River Rock ink and added the three Vintage Brads. I lined them up to perfection by using the Paper Piercer and Punch Mat from the Crafter's Tool Kit. Works like a charm!

The greeting is stamped with Birthday Wishes from the Circle of Friendship stamp set (which is part of the eScape Bundle sale this month!) layered and mounted with dimensionals for height.

Oh, yes, the card base is made with the River Rock TEXTURED cardstock - which if I haven't told SU! loudly enough yet - I LOVE! The texture adds so much dimension and yet is easy to stamp on. So, so cool.

Have a great weekend everyone! See you on Monday!
