Triple Challenge

Hello all!

I wanted to make a card for this week's Curtain Call colour challenge:

This is what I came up with (I had to substitute Elegant Eggplant for Rich Razzleberry, and Pretty in Pink for Pink Pirouette as I don't have the in-colours):

I also combined this with two other challenges - the technique challenge at SCS yesterday (to make 'faux nesties') and the Clean and Simple challenge (to make a square card). In order for the card to be CAS I limited the layers and embellishments (VERY hard for me I must say!). For the technique challenge I used a 1/2" circle punch to punch the edges of the vanilla piece so it looks like an inverted scallop.
I made the flower my stamping the motif from One of a Kind on Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink then cutting out the layers and building up. I stamped some swirls from Season of Joy using Pretty in Pink around the flower. I finished things off with some pearls from the Pretties Kit.
Thanks for stopping by!
