Late CC175-Almost Wild Saffron
I started this card last Tuesday and didn't get to sit down and make it in one sitting, start to finish. In some ways, that really bothers me because I love to get in a groove and create but in some ways, it's not so bad because it gives me time to step back and think about what I'm doing.
I started this card for last Tuesday's Color Challenge at SCS--Almost Amethyst, Wild Wasabi, and So Saffron. Now, other than the Wasabi, these are not colors I'd pick to use on a card but I decided that they didn't call it a challenge for no reason.
My card base is Wild Wasabi Textured Cardstock. I added a piece of Almost Amethyst that I scalloped with the new SU Scallop Border punch and some BasicGrey Euphoria paper to this. I tied a piece of Double Stitched Wasabi ribbon to the front and applied the sentiment from the SAB rubon set to the card. I stamped Fifi from Stampin Bella on Neenah Solar White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. This is cut out with rectangle Nestabilities and matted on Almost Amethyst and So Saffron which are also cut out with Nestabilities.
I love this card and love this image!!!!! This is one of my first Bella purchases and it's soooooooooooo cute!!! My dd also loves this card and is claiming it for herself :-)
Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
