Each month my upline, Frenchie, has a challenge for us on the team facebook page. This month was a color challenge of Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzaz and Pool Party. I love this new stamp set found in the Occasions Catalog called Happy Watercolor. My card base is 4 1/4 X 11 scored at 5 1/2. My next layer is a piece from the Fresh Prints dsp paper stack. I then used Pear Pizzaz and embossed it with Arrows embossing folder. On my top layer I used the larger background stamp with Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Pear Pizzaz. I did stamp off on each color so that my background did not over power my flower images. I stamped the flower in Early Espresso, stamping 3 times with only inking the stamp once. I then stamped the flower on a piece of Whisper White with Early Espresso and then colored it with my Pool Party marker. I cut it out and attached with a dimensional. A little crumb cake ribbon and my greeting cut with the new Banners Framelits. I used the 2 smallest ones. I stamped the greeting in Pool Party and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzaz. I added a couple of pearls and some dazzling details to finish it off.
