SPCC Challenge #9

Hello! Today I am sharing a card I made for this weeks SPCC color inspiration. I really like the colors this week :) I made this card yesterday in between organizing, resting & cooking tea! I decided to use my PTI 'In Bloom' set again as it was still on my desk! I paired it with the 'Fancy Flourishes'

Below are this weeks colors.

I stamped the largest bloom onto Orchid Opulence CS using Orchid Opulence ink and layered the blooms again, I really like the effect & dimension it gives. I then stamped the flourish using Vintage Cream onto the Close to Cocoa CS and stamped the sentiment using Close to Cocoa ink. I added a few lilac gems for a little sparkle and this section is mounted onto the card base using foam pads.

The Barely Banana section is stamped with SU! Polka Dots using Barley Banana ink. The ribbon is organza. I am really pleased with how this card turned out :)

Card Stock: SU! Orchid Opulence, Barley Banana, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink
Ink: SU! Orchid Opulence, Barley Banana, Close to Cocoa, PTI Vintage Cream
Stamps: PTI In Bloom, Fancy, Flourishes, SU! polka Dots
Accessories: Pink Organza Ribbon, SU! Corner Rounder Punch, Lilac Gems, Foam Pads

Today I am keeping myself busy with swimming, more organizing & tidying with a bit of crafting squeezed in! Tonight is card club so I am looking forward to spending time with my friends doing something we all LOVE & most of having a laugh! Hope you all have a HAPPY day!

Thanks for stopping by!
