CCMC Color Challenge #338

Good Morning, Stampers!

I am really lovin' these colors - especially during these cold, dreary winter months! It sure has brightened my week! Create with Connie and Mary have done it again!

When I started out to create a card, I told myself "no flowers, the Bermuda Bay is not a true green and will not work for leaves"... Well, looking at the card, I didn't listen to myself - lol! I went floral and just went without leaves! I tried out a little watercoloring with the feature colors and just added a few more elements to bring it all together.


Be sure to check back tomorrow - I have a card using the leftover die cut out!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Crazy About You, Painted Petals
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, crushed Curry
Paper: Watercolor, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Hello You Thin Lit die, Crushed Curry Baker's twine, Aqua Painter, Bitty Banners, Sizzix Party Pennants

Happie Stampin'!

First of all your card is gorgeous! I looked at the supplies and saw painted petals. Where?, is what I asked myself. Then I realized that border that I LOVE down the right side of your card was stamped with painted petals images! Pure genius.

Love the watercoloured tag and the bold flower! I chuckled when I read your post Melissa as I often can't get my head around flowers in non-green colours, but sometimes it just works!!
