Thanks for All You Do- Two in One!

Hi Stampers! 

I created this card using this week’s CQC108 ColourQ Challenge Colors along with the FMS8 sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches.   Again, the Design Teams at both sites have created gorgeous projects and the entries for each challenge are wonderful!
I decided to create my own "Designer Paper" with a brayer and four of the challenge colors for the center panel and also used Heat Embossing for the flowers. 

To create this card:

On two pieces of Whisper White cardstock, brayer So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait Classic ink.  Once one piece, stamp the flourish in Basic Black and mount onto Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock.

On the other piece, de-static with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the floral images with Versamark® ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss®  Black Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.   Carefully cut out each flower and set aside.

Use the Big Shot™ and emboss a piece of Peach Parfait and Whisper White cardstock with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  Assemble the layers, add the flowers and sentiment.

Finish off the card with the pearls and 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon bow.

Stamp Sets:  Creative Elements, Absolutely Fabulous (retired)

Ink:  Versamark™, Basic Black, Daffofil Delight, Peach Parfait, So Saffron

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Peach Parfait

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder, Brayer, Pearls, 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch

Thanks again for visiting today- I hope you like this card!  I had a great time making it and since these colors are not ones I would normally put together, it was truly a challenge for me!  Have fun stamping and creating and stop by again soon!
