UDI41 Flores Suaves Color Challenge

What a crazy weekend!  Fun Friday evening with yummy Mexican food, and the show CAT’s at the Times Union Center, shopping all day Saturday with DD getting clothes for her new job, and of course, even found a little time to complete my ATC’s for an upcoming swap… oh, and let’s not forget Fathers’ Day on Sunday!  Hope your weekend was filled with pleasantries!

Today’s Utah Divas International Color Challenge featured the colors Pretty In Pink, Rose Red, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso.   I’ve already seen some of the fabulous cards made by team members… be sure to check out the team blog for all current contributors, and play along too!

Knowing I wouldn’t have much quality stamping time this weekend, I quickly threw this card together for the color challenge, using the Flores Suaves, En Francais, and Thank You Kindly stamp sets.  Giving credit where due, my card was actually inspired by one I had seen by Susan R. Opel in a recent Paper Crafts Magazine publication… although her original design was much more elaborate!

The double loop bow was quickly tied on my finger tips, and attached with three mini glue dots to a band of taffeta ribbon stretching across the first three card layers.

Stamped with Early Espresso Classic Ink, the floral image from the Flores Suaves Stamp Set was colored with a Pretty in Pink Marker, then outlined and accented with a Rose Red Stampin’ Write Marker.  Both stem and leaf were painted with an aqua painter and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.

Couldn’t help but top the whole thing off with an accent of seven tiny basic jewel rhinestones… got to have some bling!

Here’s the inspiration for today’s color challenge:
