Color Challenge 11-17-09

So I finally had the chance to participate in another color challenge! It felt so good to do this again! It was like seeing an old friend again after being away for awhile. I know corny... but ya know it is the little things in life right!!!

The colors for this week were Blush Blossom, Ruby Red and Close to Cocoa. I find that I never use Blush Blossom unless it is in one of these color challenges and when I do, I actually like the way comes out! Who Knew?!

For this card, I started with a Close to Cocoa card base. Next I added the Ruby Red Layer. For the top layer, I used Blush Blossom. I stamped this piece with the flower from Season of Joy (item #110384) in Blush Blossom ink, followed by Ruby Red, and then Close to Cocoa. I tied the White Satin Ribbon around it. Don't you love that Satin ribbon?? Next, I punched out the Five Petal Flowers - 1 from each color of Card Stock. I layered these together and added 3 silver brads in the center. The flower is attached with Dimensionals. Finally, I stamped "Merry Christmas" in Close to Cocoa on Ruby Red and cut it out. Then layered it on Close to Cocoa and cut it out again.
I hope you like it! I am so glad to be back into doing these color challenges. Hopefully, I will be able to stick with it again!
Also, I have a few more posts that I am setting up right now so check back again soon to see a great gift idea!
