celebrate

Howdy again, peeps! I’ve popped in with my last card to share today that I created for The Outlawz Challenges. This one is for the Tuesday Color Challenge where our sponsor this month is Sherry West Art. We were shown a graphic with some gorgeous warm color swatches and a photo, and challenged to use three of the five colors on our project with a twist of adding a flower or flowers. I think I nailed this one, lol!


I used four of the colors with a cluster of three stamped and layered flowers as my focal point. I wasn’t ‘feeling’ this card in the beginning and left my studio to do some other things around the house. When I went back to it a couple hours later, I saw it in a whole different light and it flourished! Sometimes you just have to walk away and re-visit later.

I used one of my all-time favorite stamp sets with coordinating dies to create the flowers. I dug into my cardstock and found four colors that pretty closely match those in the graphic, using the first three colors for the flowers and the fourth color for the background. I die cut two of the ‘celebrate’ sentiments and layered the darker one beneath the lighter one. I added some cork tape across the bottom and finished the front with Crystal Drops.

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the darkest color cardstock used for the flowers and stamped the sentiment in the same color ink, and then layered the panel on the middle color cardstock used for the flowers.

One more peek… loving how this turned out despite the difficulty I had initially. It really is a simple design!
