Oh how I love this paper...so much so that I haveAnyway...the Island Oasis designer paper includes all three challenge colors so it was the perfect choice for my clean-and-simple card. I love how SU repeats design elements and shapes in paper, stamps and accessories and this paper is no exception. The tropical floral pattern of the paper mimics the pattern made by the Lattice die I featured in yesterday's post...can you you see it? So for my card, I thought it would be fun to make a flower from pieces of the lattice die. I ran the die through my Big Shot on Tempting Turquoise cardstock and then cut away two of the flower pieces. I layered the pieces on a 2.5" circle of Old Olive with a stampin' dimensional (cut in half) between each one.
hoarded saved it for the perfect opportunity and the fabulous design team at Pals Paper Arts provided just the right one with this week's color challenge. With this paper in hand, this was literally a 10 minute card! Love the colors: Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron and Old Olive and don't you just love these stylish ladies decked out in their SU frocks?!
The center is topped off with a 3/4" circle of So Saffron and one of the sparkly new Glimmer Brads in Olive Olive. I wrapped some (retired) So Saffron striped grosgrain ribbon around the main panel and stamped a Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment in Old Olive to complete the look. Cute, eh?! I really like this one...clean, simple and cheerful. I hope it brightens your day...cheers!
