Today I have color challenge from Just Us Girls that Maria came up with. It's a great one too!
Such a pretty combination, don't you think? So Spring! I used all the colors in my card.
I started with this paper from Doodlebug Designs and toned it down a little with some distress ink. The lavendar pieces are from Basic Grey Kioshi paper pack. The sentiment, from Paper Makeup Stamps, was stamped in chocolate chip and cut and embossed with a nestie. I sponged some green ink on it while it was still in the die. This was all mounted on a piece of barely banana. I tied some pink satin ribbon around it and added a prima rose at the knot. I added two more on the other side for balance and more dimension. I also punched a MS punch for the piece on top. I've seen this done a lot and decided to give it a try on my card. Like it! This was all mounted on a piece of pink pirourette base.
The sketch is from the Very Vintage sketch challenge at SCS. I thought I'd play since my JUGs friend, Mona, is now a Dirty Girl on SCS!
I also used this week's PMS challenge issued by my PMS DT friend, Tina. She challenged us to use 5 embellishments on our card. I checked with her and this qualifies! I used the punch, the ribbon, and 3 flowers....5 embellishments!
We'd love for you to join both challenges. You can find the JUGs challenge here and the PMS challenge here. Thanks for stopping in today and enjoy your weekend! I'm off to a little weekend getaway with the girls! Time for some fun and dancing! See you soon!
