CCMC Color Challenge #300

Good Morning, Stampers!

We are changing things up for this week's Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge! It's a BLOG HOP! If you started at the beginning, you are arriving from Lisa's blog. Wasn't her card fantastic?!

I really like the color challenge this week. The neutrals paired with the ever-so-gorgeous Calypso Coral is just so pretty! I knew it would be a great basis for my Mother's Day card!

Whatcha think? The Epic day This and That DSP just happened to have the Calypso Coral with a touch of Basic Gray so I built from that. The flowers were created with the scallop circle punches - crumbled up and then layered. 

Stamps: My Mother
Ink: Basic Gray, Crumb Cake
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Epic Day This and That DSP, Basic Gray
Accessories: 11/4" scallop circle punch, 7/8" scallop circle punch, Label Framelits, Bird Builder punch, Basic Pearls, Scallop Trim Border Punch

Next stop is Nicole's blog! Check out the stunningly beautiful card she created!

 Happy Stampin'!
