Amazing You for SUNDAY STAMPS

Hello again. There is a new color challenge on the SUNDAY STAMPS blog today. I was waiting for a new stamp set to come in that I wanted to use it with these colors. It never made it in time so I had to go to plan B. I ended up using the Summer Silhouette set. It's an oldie, but still a favorite of mine. Below is the summery inspiration photo:

And here is my card:

I was going to just layer the floral focal in red on top of the Crumb Cake base, but needed to add some interest so decided to frame the image and bump it up for dimension. I also spilled out some of the little navy flowers like they were blowing in a summery breeze.

Be sure to stop by the DT ladies blogs and see the very pretty creations they made this challenge.

Showers of Blessings,

Hello and welcome! This post is for the RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE #112. It's an  embellishment challenge for us to use Buttons or Bows on our cards!  And...I am the Guest Designer for this challenge...Yay!! Thank you Ladies for inviting me to join in with you all! Below is the challenge inspiration photo:

Here is my card:

I still love this set and should probably use it more. It's from Stampin Up and it's call Petal Potpourri. This set came came out about 2015 and has a matching punch. I also used the Buffalo Check background check from Stampin Up from 2018 I believe. I was going to layer with solid green, but thought the check added some interest and dimension. I chose bright colors on crisp white so they would pop!(Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo & Grapefruit Grove) Then I added the buttons to the middle of my flowers and my card was done!

Thanks for coming by and checking things out. Please stop by the blogs of the Retro Rubber Design Team Ladies and check out the lovelies they created. Hope to see you in the gallery...

Great sketch, lots of choices and ideas. My a card is below...

I decided to hit my stash of DSP for this card. I have a bunch (I know I'm not alone) and need to use some up since I'm looking at the new designs in the new SU catty :0
