It's A Scavenger Hunt Challenge!

Good Morning, Stampers!

It time for a Thursday Color Challenge with a twist today at Create with Connie and Mary! In honor of celebrating the Create with Connie and Mary 2012 Holiday Edition Preview Week, we have a fun scavenger hunt game for you to play for a chance to win a FREE Subscription! Here is what you need to do:

Visit all (9) of the Designer's Blogs today and hunt for a secret word. Once you find all of the words, rearrange them to uncover the secret phrase. Visit  Create with Connie and Mary for instructions on where to send your answer. That's it! Good Luck & Happy Hunting!

So here is the color challenge for this week. I absolutely fell in love with these colors! They are so bright yet warm for this time of the year!

Here is my card! I decided to use a much-neglected stamp set called Bright Blossoms. It is such a cute little set that got lots of use during the pre-order special a few months back, but has been sitting untouched ever since. 

I began with a piece of Lucky Limeade cardstock and embossed it using the Houndstooth embossing folder. I wrapped a piece of Lucky Limeade ribbon and tied it in a knot at the top of the card and attached the panel to a Whisper White card front. On the top of the card, I stamped the smallest flourish from the Flowering Flourishes stamp set in Lucky Limeade and the sentiment from Sweet Essentials in Night of Navy. The label was created by cutting a piece of Night of Navy cardstock using the Apothecary Accents framelit and punching the oval scallop in Rich Razzleberry. Finally, the top of the label was stamped with Lucky Limeade on the leaves/stem and the flower with Night of Navy ink. The little Rich Razzleberry button comes from the Brights Designer Buttons and adhered with a glue dot. A pearl on top of the button and the flower completes the label. Adhere the label to the card front.
