CQC #53

Hi! I'm back again! This time I have a card for the Colour Q Challenge #53. Again with the orange! These challenges aren't called challenges for nothing! ;P This one came with two shades of blue though, a color I love to work with. Without further ado, here's the color combination for the challenge.

I tried to spread out the colors evenly on this card. I wanted to stick with the white and have a splash of the rest of the colors just everywhere. I stamped a damask design for the background of my card using French Blue, it was the closest color to Pacific Point that I have. It's actually a little darker than it appears on the card. I guess the lighting made it look a little lighter. I stamped my favorite Victorian Frippery stamp on an orange strip of cs and heat embossed it white. Then I attached it to the green strip. The stamped image behind the label is actually a fan. I guess it's not too obvious since it's behind such a big label. I also glued some glitter at different portions of the fan.

The label is from Gina K designs and I stamped it with Ice Blue. When I had tied the ribbon and adhered all the elements of the card, I noticed that the left portion of the card was a little bare. It just needed a little bling! :) So I assembled the little beads and pearls and attached them on that side.

Cardstock - white (Paper Company), green, orange, light blue (Bazzill)
Stamps - Damask Designs (PTI), fan (Shake It), label (Gina K Designs), sentiment (SU), Victorian Frippery (Waltzing Mouse)
Others - ribbon (Offray), pearls, beads (Michael's)
