Bold & Beautiful Bloom

My card share today is inspired by the Paper Players #286 Color Challenge and the Global Design Project’s Theme Challenge…

pp286   GDP027 Thank you

The color combination is wonderfully bold so I set out to make a card that would do justice to these colors.

Right now I am still a little obsessed with the large flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.  I just see so many reasons to stamp this flower!  The card base is Basic Black.  The DSP panel is from the Cherry on Top 6 x 6 DSP pack and the cardstock is Bermuda Bay.  The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  I really love the font on this particular stamp.  I used a piece of retired Calypso Coral ribbon and black candy dots for accents.

But the star of the card is the lovely blooms.  They were stamped on Calypso Coral cardstock with Versa Mark and heat embossed with black embossing powder…no coloring required but the result is quite stunning.  I plan on trying this with some other colors.  I then fussy cut just the large flowers and adhered them with dimensionals. I should also mention that I stamped the Thank You sentiment the same way as it really gives it a nice shine on the Bermuda Bay cardstock.

The inside is simply embellished with a bit of DSP and another stamp from the Birthday Blooms set.

Thanks for stopping by and please come back again soon.
