CTD#54, VLVAug01 double challenge

This week it's LeAnne's turn to choose the colors for the CTD#54 found here. She asks us to use Blush Blosson, Tangerine Tango (or Pumpkin Pie), Basic Grey and Really Rust. These colors are so pretty that I didn't have any trouble putting them together to make my card. I'm out of Really Rust cardstock, so I substituted a piece of dark brown cardstock......the closest match I had on hand. I started with a panel of Tangerine Tango and embossed it with the Flower Impressabilites. I lightly rubbed my Really Rust inkpad all over it to give it a distressed look. The floral image is from the Ever After SU! set, and that was stamped in Basic Grey and colored with glaze pens. The sentiment panel was stamped in blush on blush cardstock with the "Because of You" Verve stamp set, then the sentiment itself (also from Verve) was stamped in Really Rust. The 4 "faux" brads you see are actually punched pieces of Blush cardstock, covered with CTMH liquid glass. This card also qualifies for the VLV sketch challenge with a twist for the first week of August found here.
Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great Wednesday!
