Stamping Peaches Paper Challenge

Today I have the day off due to Columbus Day and get to do a little crafting. It was rainy outside so a perfect day to spend it in the craft room! I decided to enter the Stamping Peaches Paper Challenge. It is a new challenge blog. This weeks challenge sketch was:

 
A pretty simple sketch but it took me some time to think about it! I started out using the DSP paper called Gingham Garden from SU! but decided the card was too busy to use so I just decided to use the color scheme that is used in this DSP paper: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy and Whisper White. This is the card I came up with for the challenge.
 
 
 
 
I like the simple, clean lines of this card. So many times I make cards with a lot of layers and "bling" and sometimes it is nice to just have a real clean card. I used the SU! in color adornments for the centers of my flowers. The colors match perfectly!
 
 

 


I paper pierced around the coordinating cardstock to give it a little more texture. I also popped up the flowers to give it some more dimension.

 
 
Thanks for stopping by today and try this challenge yourself. There is still time....the deadline is Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.

The colors you chose on this card just pop. It looks clean yet a lot of details. Great Job!
