Totally Hues Color Challenge #2


Hello, friends!  I'm back with one more card to share today, this time for Heather's Totally Hues Challenge.  She's chosen another wonderful combination of colors:



I am completely in love with the new Flora & Fauna stamp set from WPlus9.  These dogwood images are incredibly detailed and gorgeous!  I love that they don't need any coloring to make a statement.  Here, I stamped the large dogwood branch a few times along one side and the bottom of my card base.  I die cut Mat Stack 1 from Rustic Cream cardstock, but I didn't want it to completely cover up the flowers on the card base, so I stamped that part of the image onto the Mat Stack as well.

I was totally inspired by THIS card by Karen and THESE cards by Dawn, especially the way they layered the banner die cut with the labels.  I don't have the banner die, so I just cut my own banner from Aqua Mist cardstock and added a glitter strip in the middle.  I layered that with a Raspberry Fizz doily and a frame and sentiment from Tag-its #1.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Ocean Tides, Rustic Cream, Aqua Mist, Raspberry Fizz)
Stamps:  WPlus9 (Flora & Fauna), Papertrey Ink (Tag-its #1)
Ink:  Dark Chocolate
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 1, Doily Details dies), EK Success (circle punch)
Accessories:  Jo-Ann (clear glitter), foam adhesive

Hope you like it as much as I do!  Thanks for stopping by!

I agree with Danielle, my jaw is still on the floor! I can't decide which part I like the most--those gorgeous chocolate dogwoods, the yummy mat stack or the to-die-for glitter strip. Simply fabulous, all of it! :-)
