Color Challenge.....With Sympathy


Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made with the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The colors to use was River Rock, Basic Black and Whisper White.

My card is a 5 inch square. I used river rock for the base and then a layer of basic gray. I followed that with whisper white and then another layer of river rock. I used the extra large dot embossing folder on the river rock layer. I layered strips of basic gray and river rock across the bottom. I used a MS border punch along the edges of these strips. I stamped the blossom stamp from Easter Blossoms onto some whisper white card stock with basic gray ink. I colored the blossoms in with some river rock ink and my aqua painter. I added a few small pearls to the centers of some of the flowers. I cut this out with my circle nesties and matted with a basic gray scallop circle. I added some whisper white satin ribbon across the bottom and some pearls to each corner.





The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Stamp Set.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
