CC162 - Happy Harmony



The colors for today's Color Challenge #162 are just gorgeous!!!

Groovy Guava, Basic Black and Blush Blossom....

I have been a stamper for almost 3 years and this is the first time that I've get to used Blush Blossom!!! It works so beautiful with the Groovy Guava....plus I haven't used this wonderful retired SAB Set called "Happy Harmony" in a long time....

I have made my card 5" x 5" and started with Basic Grey as my base color.

Then I cut a Whisper White CS 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" and a Groovy Guava CS 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" . I layered them and placed my main image on the left hand side.

The flowers were stamped with Blush Blossom first and then I've stamped the Groovy Guava on top -just trying to touch the edges of the flowers....
I've layered it with Groovy Guava and a rectangle scalloped Basic Grey Nesti. The Basic Grey Ribbon is from SU and it's from the Taffeta Collection.

I have also placed some Pewter Jumbo Eyelets and Clear Rhinestone Brads to the card. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Grey and it's also from the same Set.

Make sure you'll check out my "Inspiration" card for Beate's "Be Inspired" Challenge #9 - it's just one below and I hope you'll get a chance to play along!!!

Have a wonderful day and ~TFL~!!!

Silke....Blush Blossom is one of my favorite colors.
I made a card last weekend using Night of Navy, Groovy Guava, Blush Blossom and Shimmery White. Believe it or not...I used the Merci stamp set from SAB. (many don't like it)
Try Blush Blossom with Taken with Teal, browns, rose red, almost amethyst, so saffron, Always Artichoke, black...anyway I was amazed at how well it goes with Groovy Guava.
Blush Blossom...A Wonderful Color!
