CAS Floral

Thank you for stopping by today.  I know, it's Tuesday, and that means it's time for another challenge from Nacho Average Challenge.  And this week, it brings us up to challenge #10.  This week, it is a color challenge.  I don't know about you, but sometimes color challenges are a real struggle for me.  I know that sounds weird.

Here is what I did, with these colors:


This is actually, a Clean And Simple (CAS) card for me.  I know it has a few layers.  I made the card base out of Raspberry Ripple card stock.  To give the card base some visual interest, I stamped text onto the card stock in the same color classic ink.  I stamped the floral image in Raspberry Ripple and Wild Wasabi classic inks, onto very vanilla card stock.  To get the Early Espresso color I matted the floral piece onto some EE card stock.  I thought the floral panel looked naked, so I wrapped some crochet trim.  But a bow didn't look 'right'.  So, I tied on a wood button with some linen thread.  I added a tiny tag of 'Thanks' stamped in Early Espresso classic ink.  I wanted this card to have some glimmer, so I sprayed the whole card with some home-made shimmer paint.
Thank you for looking.  I hope you have found some inspiration.  To see what the rest of the design team has created, stop by Nacho Average Challenge, and I hope you play along!

LOL..I have no earthly idea what just happened, but right in the middle of typing you, blogger just decided I was done and took the whole dang box away. :( ANYWAY, before I was so rudely interrupted..lol...I was saying that your card is beautiful! Aside from the gorgeous backdrop color and the beautiful flowers, I LOOOOVE that teeny tiny tag. That's actually one of my favorites. It's like the little cherry on top of an amazing sunday. Very cute card Sharon!! :)
