This week's Color Challenge was to use Certainly Celery, Old Olive, and Summer Sun. I really like the color challenges. They inspire me to think outside the box! This card starts with a Celery base card, then a strip of Old Olive near the bottom that is scalloped and doodled with a white gel pen. On the top edge of the strip is 5/8 inch Celery grosgrain ribbon that is pulled through a soda can pop top that my hubby painted for me. The large flower from "Time Well Spent" is stamped on Summer Sun with Stazon Black, then cut out, and the dots near the center of the flower are punched with a 1/8 inch circle punch. The Scallop Circle Punch is used to punch Old Olive and the piece is placed behind the flower to show through the holes. The leaves are stamped with Stazon on Old Olive, cut out, and adhered to the flower from behind. The tiny flowers are punched, embossed, and a Celery brad is added to their centers. A different flower was punched from Celery for the center of the large flower, and a brad was added there, too. The "Thank You" sentiment was stamped directly on the card with Old Olive.
