Petite Painted Petals
I stamped this card to go along with the challenge over at The Card Concept. I went with a clean and layered card style. I liked the flower inspiration photo along with the colors of Coral, Aqua, Green, and White. They are similar to the colors I did for a challenge yesterday, but I just lightened up the blue and the green. For this card I used Calypso coral, Wild Wasabi, Pool Party, and White. I stamped the stems and the thank you from the Painted Petals set (in the current Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog). I punched the white circle with my 2-1/2" circle punch. I punched coral flowers with my Petite Petals punch and added a rhinestone jewel to the center of each for a little bit of bing. I adhered the flowers with Stampin' Dimensionals so that they pop off the card a bit. The Pool Party background needed something subtle on it, so I continued the shape from the punched flowers by stamping one of the stamps from the Petite Petals stamp set with Pool Party ink (I stamped it 3 times for every time I inked it up). I tied some coral seam binding around the Pool Party card stock and then layered it onto my white card base.
