This Week's Color Challenge

If you have a minute, check out Colleen's entry on this week's color challenge. She is so right I was cursing her for this week's challenge. The colors are Basic Black, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray. Wow, what a hard color combination. My first thought was to do something with the Wanted stamp set, but I really want to play with one of the new stamp sets I just got so, here is what I came up with.

I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs and added Halfback pearls from the Pretties kit and attached them with mini glue dots. Next I stamped the greeting from the Lovely Labels stam set and punched it out with our 1 3/8" circle punch. I then attached it to a scallop circle punch that I paper pierced. All three layers of the embellishment, I adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals when I was done. Next, I cut a circle out with my Coluzzle and then attached a piece of Basic Black card stock beneath it. Then I took the coluzzle and made the circle frame with my Sahara Sand card stock and attached on top of the black. Lastly, a bow with our Kraft Taffetta ribbon and paper piercing finish the card off.
