Opulent Pumpkin Celery


Yep! You read it right! LOL Orchid Opulence, Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery. When I first read this Color Challenge over at SCS today, I thought "WHAT?" It actually didn't turn out as back as I thought it would. I still don't think I'm sold on this color combo, but I'm glad I tried it! I used the Fancy Florals Remixed and Thoughtful Florals sets from Verve Visual. I absolutely LOVE how this flower layers, I really do! Now that Julee has released an acrylic version of the stamp set, it's a cinch to stamp the layers of the flower. The Pumpkin Pie piece was embossed using the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug embossing folder. To finish it off, I added the pierced border, the rhinestone brad and the May Arts ribbon. Thanks for stopping by. . .you really do brighten my day! :) SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Fancy Florals Remixed, Thoughtful Florals (Verve Visual); Paper- Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery Designer Prints, Whisper White, Orchid Opulence (SU); Ink- Pumpkin Pie, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, Basic Black (SU); Accessories- Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder, duo satin ribbon (May Arts), paper piercer, rhinestone brad.

I LOVE all colors, but like you, I'm not too sure about this one. Your card looks great, I don't think I could pull it off so that means I'll have to give it a try. TFS.

I would have never of thought to use this color combination, but this card pulled it off. I think the cuttlebugging pulled it all together. I really want that cb folder and the new polka dot one.
