simply stampin' challenge, week 17

This week's Simply Stampin' Challenge is a colour challenge. And here they are...

Celebrate Swirly Flowers

Stamp Set: Basic Phrases, Season of Joy, So Swirly
Ink: Real Red, Certainly Celery 
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Real Red
DSP: Poppy Parade (Hostess Only Pack)
Punches: Modern Label, Itty Bitty, Boho Blossoms
Accessories: Basic Pearls
Extras: Sponges, Dimensionals, Jumbo Handle

y This is a little bit of a Christmassy card but by changing the colour combo this card works well at any time of the year! I think this is a card layout that I will be turning back to again and again! I wheeled out the So Swirly wheel in Certainly Celery on Certainly Celery cardstock. I tore the edge and inked it up with Certainly Celery ink to add some definition and adhered it to the Whisper White card base. To blend the Whisper White and Certainly Celery together I inked around the edge of the cardstock to soften the look. I stamped the flowers from the Season of Joy set on Real Red cardstock and layered some punched flowers using Poppy Parade dsp in the centres and on top of that some pearls. Finally I stamped the sentiment on some Poppy Parade dsp and punche out with the Modern Label punch, inked around the edge to finish!
