Mixed Bunch

I got Mixed Bunch and the co-ordinating punch in my last order and today was the first time I got to use them.

I combined the color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary with the sketch challenge at Sketch Frenzy Friday and came up with this card:




Tell you what, doing color challenges has really highlighted to me how many colors I don't use!  Pumpkin Pie is one of those colors, so I used the smallest amount possible LOL.

I stamped the flower onto Whisper White and punched it out.  I then took a Pumpkin Pie marker and colored in the center.  For the sentiment, I used Basic Gray and Real Red markers and my Stamp-a-majig.  The end is shaped using the Modern Label Punch.

Here are the challenge details:




Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Mixed Bunch; Bring on the Cake
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Basic Gray; Neutrals DSP
Ink:  Real Red; Whisper White
Accessories:  Blossom Punch; Pumpkin Pie marker; Modern Label Punch; Pearl

Cheers
Karren
