Color Throwdown # 32

Back again with another challenge entry as promised - this is the current week's challenge from Color Throwdown.

I just love making pretty cards so was really happy with these colours. I got out the cardstock in the three SU colours then went through my SU Designer Series papers and found one that matched perfectly.

Here is my entry for the challenge -

I used the Regal Rose for the base card, mounted some Spring Flowers DS paper onto Pretty in Pink card and wrapped some pink satin ribbon around this piece before attaching it to the base card.

I then embossed a strip of Barely Banana card using my Cuttlebug 'Floral Fantasy' folder and mounted this over the patterned paper and ribbon.

Then using the SU small and large oval punches, I punched two ovals for the greeting - the larger one in Regal Rose and the smaller one in Pretty in Pink. The 'Dream' greeting was a rub-on from the Eastern Elegance pack.

To finish off the card, I searched through my container of flowers and found some lovely pink and pale yellow ones to match. I attached some adhesive pearls to the centre of the pink flowers and some small gold brads to the yellow ones then mounted all of them onto the card using SU Dimensionals.

Some lovely pink rhinestones added to the greeting and a little ribbon bow, and the masterpiece was finished !
