A Flowery Thank You

Spent a little bit of time in my Stamp Room this evening, and created a card combining Freshly Made Sketches (FMS158) with Color My Heart Color Dare 115.

The three colors of the Color Dare 115 are Sunset, Olive, and Outdoor Denim.  The base of the card is a textured piece of Olive cardstock from the Enchantment Paper Fundamentals package.  For the Sunset color, some patterned paper from the Scaredy Cat kit is used and the flowers from Have A Happy Day are stamped using both Sunset and Olive inks.  A neutral Champagne ink was used to stamp the arrow, and then Outdoor Denim ink was used for the sentiment.  Some of the Sparkles and Epoxy Bubbles decorating the flowers are also an Outdoor Denim color.  For just a bit more of a finishing detail, a strip of Bronze Glitter Trim was given a scallop edge by using the Scallop Border Punch. 




This card was selected as the Ruby Winner for Color Dare 115

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
