Poppy Cottage Garden

Two challenges in one card tonight, needed as much direction as possible! Long couple days with not feeling 100%, but needed some creative time tonight. This card is for the Paper Players sketch challenge and the Color Q color challenge of the week. Here is what I came up with:


Card base is Poppy Parade, background is Peach Parfait DSP. The set used is Cottage Garden. Scallop Circles in Poppy Parade, with 1-3/8" color punches & 1-1/4 white circle punches under a flower. I mixed up the three colors, Old Olive, So Saffron & Peach Parfait between the flowers & background circles. In the center of each flower is a Glimmer Brad in Poppy Parade from the Holiday Mini. My first use of them and how fun are they!!! The saying was stamped in Poppy on Whisper White. Over the saying I added some flowers in So Saffron & Peach Parfait after stamping them off once to lessen their intensity. The saying was punched with the Scallop Oval punch and layered on the Punch Window Scallop Oval in Old Olive. A Poppy Parade ribbon is behind the oval and between two of the scallop circles.  Love how these colors go together!

Thanks for stopping by!
