WHEN A FLOWER BLOOMS SO DOES HOPE.

This card was created for multi-challenges. First off...it is for this weekends CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS COLOUR CHALLENGE over at Papercraft Planet. We were to use Red, Yellow, White & Black.

Secondly, it is for this weeks THE PINK ELEPHANT challenge. It too was a colour challenge using the exact same colours, Red, Yellow, White & Black...how freaky is that.?.

Thirdly, it is for this weeks sketch challenge over at SPLITCOAST.

I used the Peony stamp set from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS, it is one of my favourite flowers. I stamped it twice and popped it up on dimensionals.


I added some of SU new White Shimmer Paint with a sponge dauber to my flower and border edge to give it a shimmer.

The only yellow on the card is one small layer of So Saffron behind the flower panel and the flower center is yellow!

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps: Peony
Paper: Real Red DSP, So Saffron, Black, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, So Saffron, Black Staz-on, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: EK Success Fleur de lis border punch, SU White Shimmer Paint, Blender Pen, Riding Hood Red Tafetta ribbon, Shapeabilities Double End Tags, Ticket Punch, Dimensionals, Sponge Daubers, Glue Pen

Thanks so much for looking!
