CTD66 and SC252


Today was a win-win situation for me with challenges. I love both the color combination and the sketch! I love when that happens :)
First up is the Color Throwdown #66 to use Elegant Eggplant, Bordering Blue and Rich Razzleberry. I also combined that challenge with the Splitcoast Stampers SC252 sketch challenge. I used some of the beautiful Basic Grey Wisteria papers along with some Vintage Cream, Bordering Blue, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I stamped the flowers with Versamark using the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set, then embossed them with white ep and cut them out. I made a flower in Eggplant too, but there wasn't enough room on the card for it, so I'll save that for another project one day. The sentiment is by Verve and stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I added some silver pearls for accents and done!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday!
GO PHILLIES!!!
