CC275 & SC285

Whew, it's been a while since I have been able to participate in the color and sketch challenges. The colors this week are Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, and Real Red -- great combo huh? I was going to create a Dad's day card 'cuz I need 2 more, but I thought these colors worked better with flowers. So a Mom card it is.

I created some more of my own DP. For the background layer, I stamped the swirl with mellow moss, sponges Barely Banana over it, and then embossed it with the texture folder. For the top layer, I stamped the flowers and colored them in, and then sponged over everything with barely banana. I am officially in love with the Elements of Style stamp set.

LOVE this! And I'm so amazed these colors haven't been used for a color challenge in the past. I'm really going to miss Mellow Moss. ;(

Love these colors together! The red adds such a rich and elegant touch!


Hi Corie - love these colours together - they do look very rich (as Ann, above said), and the MOM letters are fabulous. Love what you have done with the leftover piece on the next card too - a true crafter never throws anything away!!
Hope you are having lots of sunshine in your part of the world. Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
