Flowery Thank You for RSCC #21

This card was made for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #21. Click here to visit the blog post - the page will open in a new window.

The card measures 4 3/4" square and was made with textured cream CS. I added a Chocolate Chip layer and a Barely Banana strip that had been stamped with some polka dots.

I used stamps from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It with Style set. I stamped the frame first, then the sentiment and then I die cut the Labels Four Nestie shape. I stamped the flowers and trimmed them and they are all popped up. The large flower has a button centre - I threaded a thin strip of Banana CS through the button holes, can't have nekkid buttons LOL! The 3 smaller flowers have candy dot centres.

I really like taking part in colour challenges as it makes me use colour combos I wouldn't think up myself. This one was quite a challenge for me I must say, it took a bit of pondering! I kept to a simple thank you card and I like how it turned out.

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It with Style set, Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics set
CS: Cream textured CS, SU! Barely Banana & Chocolate Chip, Bazzill Orange Peel texture CS in Teal
Ink: VersaMagic Jumbo Java chalk ink
Tools: Labels Four Nestabilities die
