Summer Card Camp 2011 Week 1

I am so excited to be a part of this online card class. It is being hosted by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner. Our first color challenge is warm shades of purple, pink and orange alongside a sky blue and white.

I was excited about the colors but not sure how I was going to use pink with the orange and purple. However, I was very pleased with how this turned out.

The background is embossed resist (which is the first time I have tried that). I used HA CG19 and the background is Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China.

I used lots of patterned papers for the flower and panel.
HA CL496 Flower/Leaves
HA CL150 Sentiment

Border punch is EK
MS Stewart Butterfly punch

White enamel accents on the flower.
The center is raised with a pop dot to give dimension.

Purple button with Hemp Cord

Thank you so much for stoppng by!

Thought for the day:
As iron sharpens iron,
so a friend sharpens a friend.
Proverbs 27:17
