Bright Flowers

For this card I combined two challenges from Splitcoaststampers, the color challenge (CC330) and the sketch challenge (SC340). The color challenge was to use melon mambo, tangerine tango and rich razzleberry and I decided that flowers would probably be the easiest way to combine these colors. I stamped the flower image onto the various colors of card stock using white craft ink, embossed them with white embossing powder, cut them out using my paper snips and attached a half pearl to the center of each flower. The sentiment was stamped onto whisper white card stock using rich razzleberry ink and then punched out with the decorative label punch. For the border on the sentiment, I used the decorative label punch and rich razzleberry card stock and then cut the piece in half horizontally and mounted the halves to the top and bottom of the sentiment. The center panel was created using a piece of whisper white card stock adhered to melon mambo card stock that had the left edge punched using the scallop edge border punch. It still seemed to need something else so using rich razzleberry card stock and an EK Success flower chain punch I punched a border and attached it under the scalloped edge. The flowers and sentiment were adhered to the center panel using dimensionals. For the button I attached a rhinestone brad through the holes and using mini glue dots attached it to the card front.
