PPA 59 Color Challenge

Today I'm posting my card for the PPA 59 Celebrity Color Challenge.
I started with one card and ended up with two. I decided the second one would be my entry since the all the stamps used are current, but both will posted today for you to see.

The card I entered is made with the new Hostess Level I stamp set Apple Blossoms, which is a great 'go-to' set for just about any occasion.  I started with  So Saffron CS for the card base that is embossed with the Elegant Bouquet folder.
The whisper white CS was stamped with all three colors of the challenge, and all the images are from the Apple Blossoms set.



The apple was stamped on a scrap piece of whisper white and punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch, which was then mounted to a 1 3/8" circle of So Saffron. A few pieces of scrap ribbon in olive and daffodil were added for interest then popped up with dimensionals.

This card went together very quick and easy.

The next card is made with the exact same colors, but using the tree image from the Branch Out (retired) set,  which is still one of my very favorite sets. I sponged the clouds with Temping Turquoise using a mask technique. I sponged the bottom half with old olive, then stamped the images, and punched the flowers in So Saffron with the flower from the Itty Pity Shapes punch (set of 3).
I colored the centers with a turquoise write marker, then glued to the image flower.


                 The sentiment is from the Apple Blossom set punched with the Word Window punch and matted to the olive Modern Label piece, then popped up with dimensionals. The WW front was double matted with turquoise and so saffron, then adhered to the olive card base.
 Easy Peasy. Done!
Well that's all for today. Hootie says "Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment"!
