DeNami Design Color Challenge

The challenge this time at the DeNami Design Blog is a color challenge.  The talented Andrea chose the color palette.

I really enjoyed working with these colors.  This is what I came up with.

I created the background by spritzing my Birds & Swirls embossing folder with Lavendar Fields and Blue Skies Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.  I carefully laid a piece of white cardstock in the folder and embossed it.  I matted the background with Concord Crush and Early Espresso cardstock.  I die cut a piece of white cardstock with Spellbinders Labels 1 #2 (#1 is smallest) and embossed it.  Before I popped out the cardstock I stamped the Large Flower Spray from DeNami Design using the die as a mask.  I sponged Crumb Cake ink from Stampin' Up around the edge of the die cut and then matted the image using a Concord Crush mat cut with Spellbinders Labels 1 #3.  I added tiny pearls to the center of each flower.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
Button, pearls & ribbon from stash
