Papertrey Ink Color Challenge-Melissa's colors


I'm back with my last submission to the Papertrey Ink Color Challenge.  My mojo was definitely waning by the time I got to card #4, so I'll have to file the other color combos for future inspiration!  This last card uses Melissa Bickford's favorite combo, shown below.  I also used the current sketch from Clean & Simple.

















I started with a Sweet Blush card base and stitched on a Bitty Dot Ripe Avocado panel.  I layered Spring Moss cardstock and looped ribbon on top.  The doily is a Martha Stewart tag, which I topped with a layered Hibiscus Burst flower cut with the Beautiful Blooms dies.  The sentiment (from Tea for Two Additions) was stamped in white ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

All supplies Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock:  Sweet Blush, Spring Moss, Hibiscus Burst
Patterned paper:  2008 Bitty Dot Basics
Stamp:  Tea for Two Additions
Ink:  Frost White (Clearsnap)
Tools:  Beautiful Blooms dies
Accessories:  Spring Moss ribbon, Sweet Blush button, doily tag (Martha Stewart), embossing powder (Stampendous), DMC floss, thread, foam adhesive

Thanks so much for hanging in there through all of these posts tonight!  Good luck to everyone else playing for a chance to win!

Holy cats, you've been busy! I can't believe how unique each of your cards are, but I can still tell that they are "yours"! Love the pink bloom in this one.

Love it Christina! I went to do some stitching on a card yesterday, but my little Janome Sew Mini has broken and now I have to take it to get repaired. Such a pain!!
