CBCC #31 - Color Challenge

Hi Everyone! This week over at Created By Courtney Challenge we have a fun color challenge! YAY...gotta love these! Here are the colors: At first this was a little scary for me, as I challenged myself to not use any dp and only cardstock. However, once I got going this card came together very nice! I used my new Easter stamp that I got while I was on spring break. Isn't it beautiful? I colored it with my Copics, and added yellow and purple stickles to the center of the flowers. So saffron paper is cuttlebugged with my stylized flowers folder. Sage Shadow corners were made using my SU curly label punch and my corner punch (not sure I really like how they came out, but it works). Used my oval nesties for the lavender lace behind the image, cut flowers with my retro punches, and of course used my MS branch punch for the ballet blue leaves. Pearls, brad, spacer, and ribbon from my stash.
And a close up of the image! I know I will be using this stamp a lot. It's just so pretty!
This is the right side of the inside of the card. I used my MS border punch on the lavender lace, and cuttlebugged the so saffron.
On the inside I carried part of the design from the front.
I can't wait to see what you all make with these colors! Make sure you head over to Courtney's blog and link up your creation for a chance to win a great prize! And then head on over to see what the other chicks have made with these colors...their links are in my side bar!
Have a GREAT Tuesday! We are getting lots of rain today so it's gloomy.....good day to be inside working on homework (and hopefully getting a little crafting in too)!
Thanks for stopping by!
