26 march - card day wth color scheme



I hope you came from Erica's blog  but if not, please head back over there to see more at mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com
 
Today is Sketch Day using the colors pastel green and pastel Yellow and 1 other color AND using the sketch seen here.


I was excited to remember the Cricut Cartridge 50 States as it has ALL the states flowers..   so using the flower for South Carolina on page 52 and #40 on the overlay. perfect for today as it has these pretty spring colors.  This flower is called Yellow Jessamine.  Flowers cut out at 1.24h and the little ones at 1in h.

purple was my 3rd choice for my colors as I used it as the base of my card and inked using Amethyst ink pad from ctmh.  paper chosen was Amethyst from ctmh.    I chose Buttercup (yellow) and Sweet leaf (green)  both from ctmh

I embossed the leaves using Forest Branches cuttlebug embossing folder.  AND for the flowers I used cuttlebug paper lace 2 flowers.  after embossing I ran a little sandpaper over it to expose the white underneath and then inked it a little using colors matching the papers.

when you are done putting the flower together you get a pretty 3d raised flower.

FRAME: is using Elegant Edges cricut cartridge and cutting out at 5.20w & 5.88w.  Inking the larger frame with buttercup ink pad from Ctmh.   ON the top frame I used Buttercup liquid pearls around some of the edges.
Ribbon is a light green organdy ribbon from Ctmh.

Stamp set sentiment is one of my favorites from Kristal Andrews called Scripture Sayings.  You can see and get this stamp set and more at www.kandrewdesigns.com.





Please leave some love and tell me what your favorite flower is...
