GSS Color Challenge

For my FCCB Cricut Crawl "Back to School" click here
Happy Tuesday Bloggers!  I am here
today to show you a card I made for the
Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team
Color Chllenge. 
Our challenge was
Light Brown and Dark Red.

I used cardstock and Distress Ink
completely on this card. 

Kraft cardstock for the base and mat.
Cream cardstock for everything else.
I used the following inks to color my poinsettia.

I then added a little Mustard Seed
Distress Stickles for a little bling.

The mat was cut from Spellbinders
Romantic Rectangles.  I think this might
end up to be one of my favorites.
The base layer was dry embossed with
a folder, but for the life of me I can't seem
to bring up that information from
my vastly compromised brain cells.  LOL

I appologize for the picture quality.
I went to bed really early last night
and forgot to set my post. 
So I am having
to do this at work with what I have. 

SHHHH....Don't tell on me...

The poinsettia was cut from
Joys of the Season.
I cut three and inked both sides
and then layered them for a 3D effect.

Here is a close up:

I hope you enjoy it and make sure to

DT sisters came up with for this challenge.

  1. The poinsettia is glorious, and I think I HAVE to have that set of Spellbinders dies!

  2. Janea, this card is beautiful!!! I was wondering what card size you made this and the size of the poinsettia? It is stunning and beautiful is all I can say. I hope to hear back from you. Thank you!!!

  3. Janea this card is soo pretty and I love the layering and detail and lace ribbon is just outstanding!

  4. This is beautiful Janea! I love how the kraft pieces are so textured and beautifully punched but with all that details the poinsettia is still the star of the card. It looks real! You did a great job with it.

  5. Oh mt goodness that poinsettia is stunning. TFS


I love to hear from you....
