French Foliage Color 3

Morning all! Hope your weekend is going well. All is good here, getting stuff done around the house and in the stamp room :) Love it when the ideas are running around in my head!

Here is the second card I did for the 3rd SU! Color Challenge to #keepstamping.

The retired French Foliage set has always been a favorite and it's been hanging around the stamp table since the last garage sale. I happened to see it the other day and thought it would be perfect with these colors. Pretty Peacock, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. Very happy with this one!!

I didn't necessarily want the blues to be the primary color, so I went with Early Espresso for the large leaf and started stamping. Added in the rounder leaf in Pool Party and the smaller one in Pretty Peacock. Stamped and alternated until the background was full. Then I grabbed the dots and went all over in Crumb Cake, some full strength, some off once. Once all done I put the entire background through the Subtle Embossing folder. Click to see if you can see the detail, it now looks like textured cardstock. Trimmed to size and added to an Early Espresso accent layer. The Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen ribbon was the perfect accent before adding to the Pretty Peacock card base. Tag is from the Painted Labels Die set, saying from Peaceful Moments. Attached over the ribbon with Mini Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by! #keepstamping I'll be back, I have several more cards in que! I broke into some old things yesterday and I'm having a lot of fun with this! Lots of cards to mail too! Shopping links and product details below!
