I was looking forward to this week's color combo challenge, as the soft colours really spoke to me. I briefly hesitated before choosing my card's theme, as I could see this combo working for a baby card or even a wedding card, but I went for a Mother's Day card instead since I'd like to have a few of those on hand to sell at the office in the upcoming month.
I looked at my stamp set and selected one I hadn't mounted and inked just yet, namely the Punch Potpourri hostess set received with my last order. I stamped the butterfly with Pretty in Pink Craft ink on Whisper White cardstock, embossed the image with Iridescent Ice powder, punched it out with the butterfly punch and added some pearl jewels to it. I then decided I wanted the butterfly to rest on a flower so I picked one from the retired Pretties kit, stamped the Dot Dot Dot stamp on it in Versamark and used a dauber to rub some pink pastel over the design to color the flower and make the dots stand out. Then, I stamped the heart from the same stamp set on a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock and used a circle punch to create a center for my flower.
I repeated the same step to create other circles that I used to create a scallop border. I remembered about the retired Flower Patch Design paper pack from which I still have some pieces of paper left that I knew would have Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery on. I then wrapped a piece of Celery twill (also retired but currently offered in the Clearance Rack) around my patterned paper, stamped a Mother's Day sentiment in Basic Grey and added two pearls from the Pretties kit at the top.
Super easy and super sweet!
