I thought this would be a snap to do with such cheery colors but I really struggled deciding what color card base to use. Nothing seemed 'right' when I assembled them, because I have limited supplies in these colors except for the CS, so I opted for Whisper White as the base. Can't go wrong with white, right? Then I added the colors with INK to the design elements on the front. In the first card I used the Awash with Flowers set (love that set) with a sentiment from Apple Blossoms hostess set. Two of my favorite sets.
The three colors are in the flowers with a turquoise mat to make it pop a little. I also added some bling with a few Basic Pearls on the small blue flower used to set off the sentiment,
and again in the butterfly body. I have a bunch of these butterflies in my stash that I stamped and punched a few years ago using my friends tools, so I'm not sure if it's a retired SU stamp & punch or not. But I love it.
Simple but nice I think... how about you? What do you think?
I made another card using the same idea with a Whisper White background but this time I embossed the front corner with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. I stamped the design on W.W. using the Apple Blossoms hostess set in Melon Mambo and Delightful Daffodil;
and added a few small flowers from the Awash set and colored with a turquoise marker.
I double matted this on Delightful Daffodil and Melon Mambo CS; both edged with the Scallop Trim Border punch. Again a touch of Basic Pearl halfs in two sizes on the flowers, and finished with a simple bow using the polka dot ribbon (retired) attached with a glue dot.
Well that's my entry for the PPA55 color challenge.
