colourQ challenge #127

This weeks colourQ palette spoke the word spring to me.  It could be that I am so ready for spring but I didn't find it hard to put together my card. The card base was made from Dark Chocolate, the white panel was embossing and adhered with foam dots, the Sweet Blush Doily was adhered directly to the white panel and the tulip was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Next the Melon Berry scallop circle was die cut and then die cut again with the tulip.  The stamen was stamped on the Melon Berry layer with VersaMark and embossed with clear powder once again and adhered with foam dots.  The Simply Chartreuse border was adhered directly to the white panel.  Finally the white banner was stamped in Dark Chocolate and adhered with foam dots.  Lots of dimension.






All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry, Sweet Blush, Simply Chartreuse
Stamps: Flower Fusion #11, Egg Hunt
Ink: Dark Chocolate (PTI), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Dies: Doily Details, Limitless Layers 1.75", Flower Fusion #11, Banner, Filigree Border

This is so, so pretty, Tracey. ;-) I am just itching for Spring, and we finally had warm enough weather to walk around the block today. I love how you used the colors for this challenge, and I love the way you used the Flower Fusion. Those ones always get me. ;-) Some of my all-time favorite stamp sets! Nice job. ;-)
