Happy Thursday friends, and welcome to another week at Create with Connie & Mary! It's a color combination that you're sure to love:
I have to admit, I haven't shown Peach Parfait much love in my projects so I was a little unsure what I was going to do with it. Fortunately, Everyday Enchantment designer paper, available through Sale-a-Bration on 1/24/12, came to the rescue. It features all three of the challenge colors so I built my card around it with inspiration from Tara Bilbao's gorgeous card and this little lovely from Elizabeth Price. Here's what I made for you:
The Labels Framelits and Apothecary Art stamp set really brought this card together quickly. I stamped the floral label onto Naturals Ivory cardstock with Soft Suede ink and colored the flowers with Peach Parfait, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write Markers:
I trimmed out the sentiment banner with a little bit of Lucky Limeade punched with the Scallop Ribbon Border. A few pearls and a sweet little embossed butterfly add just enough detail to make it interesting.
Before I added the focal point, I spritzed the background with some Vanilla Smooch Spritz for a subtle sparkle. I'm starting to really love that smooch spritz! I know, what took me so long, right?!
And finished off the inside with some more Everyday Enchantment designer paper, a sentiment from Loving Thoughts and a floral spray from the Charming set.
