Only Regal Garden Plums!


Just a quick post to show you something I made today - it's for our SU team challenge. This week was to do a colour search on this website and pick one of the combos that come up and go with them to make a card. I ended up with Only Orange, Regal Rose, Garden Green and Perfect Plum - eek! What a combo!!

I needed to multi-task with this challenge as I have a class coming up next Saturday on using punches. One of the ideas I wanted to use was the 'dahlia fold' flower using circle punches so I used that technique with this colour combo. The paper I used was the Perfect Plum DSP pack. The pink background paper was created by stamping a variety of stamps from Circle Circus onto Bride DSP and rubbing with kitchen towel - pretty funky eh?! I added a white satin ribbon bow in the centre of the flower for an extra quirky touch.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow for the next Curtain Call colour challenge!

This is fabulous, Amy!!! I need to make one of those flowers as I never have. You used the colour combo wonderfully well.

Amy, I just love this card. The color combo is awesome! Can you tell me how you folded the circle for the flower petal?
