Soft Cantaloupe Painted Petals
I knew it was time to play along with a couple of challenges once again, maybe someday I'll be able to play weekly, but I'll take what I can get for now. I paired the color challenge from Pals Paper Arts (Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Kraft/Crumb Cake) along with the inspiration challenge from Just Add Ink and came up with this card. I love the softness of Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding (both 2013-2015 In Colors) and hope that we may see them come back after their 2 year time is over. I stamped the roses from the Painted Petals stamp set and layered them on some Crisp Cantaloupe card stock, then tied some soft Crumb Cake seam binding around it before layering it onto some Pistachio Pudding. I textured the Crumb Cake card base with the Spring Flowers embossing folder. I stamped "you are amazingly amazing" in Crumb Cake (it's also in the Painted Petals set) and punched it with the Designer Label punch. I'm planning to stamp up a bunch of cards to give away at Mother's Day and think this is a card I should definitely create more of. It feels so soft and calming and seems so perfect for Mother's Day. I'd better get started, just over a month to go!
