Everyday Parfait {CCMC185}

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.

I hope I've inspired you to dig out these colors and get busy in your craft room--we would love to see what you make!  Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team creations at Create with Connie & Mary for some fabulous inspiration!  We hope that you will play along with us--the challenge will run until Wednesday, January 25th at 12 Noon (EST).  I hope to see you in the gallery!

Lovely colouring of the image and the EF on the BG DP is lovely. You rocked these colours :) Please enjoy some warm weather for me - I'm freezing up here LOL!

Nance this is gorgeous! Love the different sized pearls, and little butterfly is darling. Smooching the BG DSP is fantastic. Love it. Hugs.

Absolutely stunning!I love all the extra little details that you added; the pearls, the butterflies and the Smooch Spritz really make this card stand out.

Beautiful card Nance, love the different size pearls, the placement of the ribbon, the DSP paper along with embossing the edges, very nice. It all adds together for a lovely card. The inside is as pretty as the outside, who wouldn't want to receive this card!

Patti said...

You did a great job of using those colors together Nance. Love the colored image.

Margaret said...

Very pretty! This is not a combo I would have normally used either (before this DSP!) I really like the ribbon behind the image. It's a nice change from a traditional bow!

Lesley said...

Pretty! Love the smooch. The ribbon is perfect. Great card Nance!

Linda Callahan said...

Layer upon layer upon layer of gorgeousness! And smooched besides! I need to back and look some more............

Deb said...

WOW! This is stunning! I just love all your details! I really need to do more with the smooch spritz. Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, Nance, this is so elegant and full of richness! Wow, let me pick my jaw off the floor ... absolutely breathtaking! Have a great weekend!

Nance, this is another of your creations that I need to CASE. It is absolutely perfect. I liked the color challenge because that combination of colors just speaks to me, you know? But your interpretation? My only limit will be, "Just how much of that DSP can I get my hands on?" Thank you so much! Celia
