SplitCoast Color Challenge.......Thanks So Much


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I took a look  at the color challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. First up I saw the pretty colors and then the fact that my awesome friend Wendy was guest designing this month. So of course I HAD to play along!

Here are the colors this week:

Basic Gray, Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette.
When I went looking through my card stock I couldn't locate my Blushing Bride, I know I have some, but since I re-organized I can't find several things!! LOL!!

Anyway, I knew right away I wanted to use a NEW FAVORITE, The Stampin Up "Simply Sketched" which is gonna be a hostess set in the new catalog.
I stamped the image and sentiment with black stazon onto some Confetti White card stock and I colored with my aqua painter and blushing bride ink pad. I stamped a second image and colored the flower and added it over the bottom one with some dimensionals.  I cut out with my circle nesties and then sponged the edges lightly with basic gray while the nesties was still in place. 


The base of the card is the confetti white card stock, then a layer of basic gray and then a piece of pink pirouette that I embossed with Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.
I added the nmain panel to the base with some dimensionals. I added some basic pearls and some Organza Ribbon. 
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Vicki, your card is stunning. I love how you've made the pretty flower 3D, and softened the circle with the gray
