CAS Colours & Sketches - #234 Colour Challenge

Good Morning CC&S Fans,
Happy first Tuesday in August!!  Patricia is this month's CAS Colours and Sketches host. The first Tuesday means a color challenge and Patricia has chosen Blushing Bride, Cajun Craze, and Tempting Turquoise for everyone to play with. Unsure of how to combine these three colors,  I started by featuring the Blushing Bride and Tempting Turquoise and using Cajun Craze as an accent.  It would be a super-simple card to reproduce. The only thing I'd change is to reposition the flower at the top so it would have a turquoise seed bead.  Loved those little accents!

The stamp set is called Find the Beauty from Right At Home Stamps.  A Misti was instrumental in creating this card because it allowed me to stamp each flower three times to have a well-stamped image.  I stamped three more layers of Blushing Bride for the lines on the petals, giving it a deep color.  Cajun Craze was too much of a contrast on the flowers, so it was relegated to the little cluster of dots moving around the flowers.  The sentiment is white embossing powder and the lacey oval background is a very old (and seldom used) die from Papertrey Ink.

Hope you will join us this week in the CC&S Gallery.  Take at peek at the DT creations, HERE for some inspiration!
