Julie emailed me first thing this morning and she got her card in the mail so now I can show all of you my Color Challenge card. I couldn't get a very good picture for some reason, it's much prettier in real life. I used Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip, Vanilla & Close to Cocoa paper....the strip of cocoa I ran through my CB using my new polka dot texture plate. I used the large Polka Dot background stamp from Stampin Up and inked it all in Soft Sky, then used a Chocolate Chip pen to change the color of some of the dots. :) The flower is from Heidi Swapp and I just love it!!! My July Bella Box from Paper Pretties contained this gorgeous yellow paper with this exact flower on it, so when I found the matching stamp set I snatched it right up!!! I added a little color inside the petals with my aquapainter and Soft Sky inkpad and Cocoa inkpad. It needed a little sparkle so I used the Sakura Clear Glitter pen to add a bit of shimmer around the petals.
Add a little paper piercing to the corner and some gorgeous Chocolate Taffeta ribbon (love that, btw) and tah dah!! I really wanted to keep this card, how horrible is that?!?! HAHAHAH
