Beautiful Days Color Challenge Card

The first Wednesday of each month at Repeat Impression’s blog, The House that Stamps Built, is going to be a color challenge. We give you the color inspiration, and you can make a card using those colors to possibly win a great prize of Repeat Impressions rubber! Here is the color palette chosen this month:

The purple and green of this color combo reminded of my favorite part of this time of the year- the flowering bushes and trees. I decided to re-create the look with Repeat Impression’s Beautiful Days Hydrangea.  I stamped the oval stamp several times on purple patterned paper, on green and on a blue cardstock piece. I die cut an oval frame out of the front of a cream colored card base and embossed “happy birthday” wishes on the whole card with an embossing folder by Embossalicious.  I cut out the blue stamped oval and paper pieced the flowers and leaves. I decided I wanted a few more flowers at the top of the oval on the inside and outside, so I covered up the bee that is part of the original stamp. Here is a look at the card from the inside:

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Through the Craft Room Door.

Wonderful card karen - love the floral elements and the way you have contrasted them with the textured, palin coloured background.
