It's that time again, are you ready to play along? Here is the challenge for the Second Color Lab Challenge!

Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Old Olive

Here is my creation! Maybe not the best ever, but it was really late! I remembered this at midnight Monday, well Tuesday morning I guess, when I was finishing up my swaps for convention. I left home Tuesday at 7:30!! YIKES!! The good news is I remembered and I got a few hours sleep!!!

Card base is Tempting Turquoise. Background is Naturals Ivory that I textured in the Big Shot, adding the thin wooden craft frame to the sandwich to leave the center untextured. I then used a mask with just the oval cut out to stamp the flowers from Inspired by Nature. I inked them using sponge daubers. The center of each flower is Tempting Turquoise, the large flower petals are Melon Mambo, the small are Regal Rose, and the stems are Old Olive. I sponged the edge with Tempting Turquoise, and put a little Regal Rose on the textured lines for accent. An Old Olive grosgrain ribbon is tied around the bottom. The saying was stamped in Melon Mambo, punched with the Wide Oval. I used my Mat Pack guide & Paper Piercer to add a line below the passion. I sponged the edges with Tempting Turquoise ink and added the oval with dimensionals.

Won't you click over the blog and play along??
