Hello there! Today's card is my Goddess card for the Stampin' Royalty weekly challenge blog. The challenge this week is a picture inspiration challenge. Take a look at the picture, see what elements sing to you, create something beautiful, and link it up by next Tuesday.
I pulled out my crisp cantaloupe and went to work. I am bummed a bit that the color did not photograph well, I must remember to use the daylight when taking pictures of this color.
I wanted to mimic the white on color look, so embossing was in order. White embossing powder is lovely on color card stock, give it a try. The Secret Garden stamp set has beautiful flowers, and this one was perfect for the card.
The white background is actually the shimmery white card stock, it adds a bit of shimmer to give this CAS card a little punch. If you have not tried it yet, you should it is beautiful.
The honeycomb embossing folder gave me the texture that I needed. I have never made a color on color card, and I was pleased on how it turned out.
A simple white stitched grosgrain ribbon bow, dresses the card up a bit.
I really could see this card made in all of the In Colors and grouped as a set. It would be a perfect to package them up cutely in a little bag or box, and gift them. I will have to do that! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
