Embellish Magazine Color Challenge with Ric Rac

Hi peeps! Finally it's Friday! I couldn't wait for the weekend. My order from PTI just came in and I was sooo excited to use everything!!! I don't normally compete with everyone else in ordering the new releases. I just wait a few months before all the hype dies down and I can get them easily. And I ALWAYS, always order before the 15th, because then my order comes in much faster :)


On to the challenge from Embellish Magazine. I love love love this color combination! It's so fun!!! I managed to use one of the stamp sets I just got this week. I used the cute and simple butterfly from Butterfly Dreams stamp set. I don't know why, but when I saw this color combination the first thing that came to mind was my Friends 'till the End flower. So I stamped it on Hawaiian Shores cardstock and painstakingly cut it out. I used some Paper Glaze on the center to add more dimension.  I also just bought designer paper from PTI, I placed an orange Dotty Biscotti strip underneath the flower. And finally, I placed my orange ric rac underneath the strip :) 


Have a great weekend! Enjoy!







Supplies:
Cardstock - kraft, Vintage Cream, Hawaiian Shores (PTI), brown, orange (Paper Company)
Patterned Paper - Dotty Biscotti (PTI)
Stamps - Friends till the end, Butterfly Dreams (PTI)

  1. I love all of the elements you've layered on this card! Your flower is beautiful with the paper glaze and rhinestones in the center.

    I agree with you about PTI orders--I always try to order just before a release and it comes so much faster!
