Color Challenge....Thanks

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card with you I made with this weeks color challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

The colors for this challenge are Crumb Cake, Concord Crush and Very Vanilla! What a great combo. I started my card with a base of Crumb Cake card stock. I followed that with some very vanilla and then the concord crush was embossed with the Vintage Wall EF. I rubbed some shimmer paint onto the concord with my finger hitting just the raised pieces ever so lightly. It is really a pretty shimmer IRL, doesn't show so much in the picture.

I used the Perfect Trimmings die for the scallops in very vanilla then on top of that some more crumb cake. I ties some concord crush ribbon around the base and tied a pretty bow. The main image is made into a large tag. I layered crumb cake and concord crush and then the very vanilla. The flowers come from the Friends 24-7 stamp set and the Sentiment is from the retired Kind & Caring Thoughts stamp set. I added some ribbon and jumbo silver brad to the tag. I then finished is off with some silver pearls on the scallops and on the top corner.

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