One Color and a Sneak Peek



Here's my card for this week's Shopping our Stash challenge #131 which is "One Color." You may use neutrals with your one color, so I've used turquoise with black & white. The flourish is a Cheery Lynn die, while the white flowers (both large and small) were done with a Simon Says Stamp Bella Bloom die. Those cute little blue flowers were done with a sneak peek SU! stamp and punch bundle called Petite Petals that will be available January 3rd in the upcoming Occasions catalog. I stamped them with turquoise ink, and added a mini brad to the centers, then popped them up on dimensionals. I rounded the corners of the turquoise panel to soften the overall look.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

This one is stunning. The turquoise
colour just pops off the page.

The contrast of the white is so effective! And I love those flowers!

Wow you've been busy while I've been sick. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS one. I love the simplicity of it and those two flowers with that flourish is just as sweet as can be. You know I'm always drawn to flower are have spots on them in real life, which is probably why I just love these so much. Perfect card for the SOS challenge. I wanted to play along but today I have to catch up on all things I did not do for two days because we have company coming tonight. Hopefully I'll get back to card making tomorrow. Have a fabulous day.
