PPA134 Color Ch & PP94 Mother's Day - Field Flower

I wanted to try this color challenge over at the Pals Paper Arts, PPA134 and than I took a look over at The Paper Payers website to check out what they were having and it's a Mother's Day Theme #94 so I focused on both challenges to come up with the card below.

To start, I used the Finial Press embossing folder (now retiring) for the background of the card and when from there. Next, I grabbed So Saffron dsp and added some to the bottom along with Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon. Then I grabbed Baja Breeze to start the focal point.

For the focal point, I used the stamp set: Field Flowers which I was excited to try out along with the Stamp-a-ma-jig and was so happy that it worked out nicely. Calypso Coral ink was used for the flower along with Pear Pizzaz for the stem.

I will admit this card took forever, since I couldn't figure where I wanted to place my layers and kept adding and taking away every so often. I will stay this was quite the challenge for me, but it was a great challenge and happy how it turned out in the end, so one should never give up.

This stamp set comes with the perfect sentiment for this occassion, "With Love". It also has another sentiment which I used for the inside. Didn't take photo of the inside, sorry.

Almost forgot, I did use Stampin Dimensionals under the Baja Breeze focal point to pop up the flower and sentiment. This time around, I decided not to add any embellishments to leave it clean and simple. Hope you enjoy!! If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks!
