Two Challenges- One Challenging Color Combo!

Hi Stampers!! 

This week’s ColourQCQC123 Challenge colors definitely remind me of the 70’s again- I do believe that retro is in and aren’t those owls cookies cute? I must admit, I did struggle a bit with this color combination but in the end decided to combine it with the Stampin’ Queen’s SQSC25 Sketch Challenge (again, both sites offer so much inspiration and you should see what the Design Teams created!)..

This card was definitely quick and easy once I determined the design :-)

Ink the French Filigree background stamp with Regal Rose Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, emboss with the Big Shot™ and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. 

Attach the two lengths of White Satin Ribbon and mount onto the Regal Rose cardstock base.

With the Big Shot™ and the Framelits™ Labels Collection, cut a frame from Regal Rose cardstock and Peach Parfait Designer Series Paper (retired Hostess pack).  Emboss both with the Big Shot™ and the Pefect Polka Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Use the Blossom Punch (love this new punch!) and punch a flower from Poppy Parade Designer Series Paper (I used a piece from a retired Hostess Pack) and run through the Crimper Tool.  Layer with a center created with the Boho Blossom Punch from Peach Parfait cardstock and add a Pearl to the center.

Attach the flower to the embossed label layer, add the bow and little tags to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  French Filigree, Tiny Tags

Ink: Regal Rose, Poppy Parade

Paper: Whisper White, Regal Rose, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait Designer Series Paper (retired Hostess Pack)

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Framelits™ Labels Collection, Square Lattice and Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Crimper Tool, Punches-Boho Blossom, Blossom, Jewelry Tag, White Satin Ribbon (from my stash),  Pearls 

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a wonderful week!
