CCMC236 Color Challenge

Hi all, we have another color challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary.

Deciding to go for a floral card was a pretty easy decision given these colors.  I chose Stippled Blossoms and did lots of 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation stamping and fussy cutting to come up with this card:

The two darker roses were stamped using Raspberry Ripple stamped off twice for the background and full strength for the highlights.  The lighter rose was stamped using Pretty in Pink full strength for the background and Raspberry Ripple stamped off twice for the highlights.

Thanks for looking.  Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary to see what the rest of the challenge team has come up with.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Stippled Blossoms; Made for You
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla; Lucky Limeade; 2012-14 In Color DSP; 2011-13 In Color DSP; Subtles DSP
Ink:  Pretty in Pink; Raspberry Ripple Lucky Limeade
Accessories:  Apothecary Accents Framelits; Lacy Brocade EF; Basic Pearls
