CD101 - Hello Blossoms

I love being a part of the Color Dare Design Team! It's so much fun to be challenged with new color combos every week! This week the color combo is #101: Regal Rose, Old Olive and Early Espresso. And here is the card I created...



Last week I showed you card that I made for my MIL for Mother's Day and today I'm showing you the card that I made for my Mom! Hope you enjoy it!



I started this card like I do a lot of cards, with a Crumb Cake cardstock base! It's one of my favorite colors. I need to get back to my Make it with Crumb Cake Mondays. I will try to do that this week!



The DSP from this card is from the Brights Collection Patterns DSP Stack. This stack of paper has lasted me a LONG TIME! I love that it was only a $19.95 investment! The Rose Red cardstock was punched with the Scallop Border Punch (I think I prefer this color better than Regal Rose...I totally spaced it when creating this card and used the wrong color. Sorry!).


I love ribbon! And I especially love Stampin Up ribbon because it matches our colors perfectly! This card uses the Early Espresso 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon. I simply tied it in a bow!



Then I stamped the Hello Blossoms image (NEW IN THE SUMMER MINI: #123102, $7.95, page 7 of the mini) on Whisper White cardstock using Rose Red and Old Olive inks. I matted that piece of cardstock with a little Early Espresso. Then I used 5 Clear Rhinestone Brads, one for the center of each flower!



I love how this card turned out and I hope you do too! If you would like to play along with us, just link up your card creation by next Monday!
