This is for the SUO Challenge (Stampin' Up! Only). The challenge is called "Thankful", and we were to make a card to express our thankfulness for anything or anyone. I have a friend who has been very supportive during some trying times, so I will send this card to her. I went out of my comfort zone with this color combo which I found on the Baja Breeze card in my Color Coach. Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard; interesting. I used Cherry Cobbler for the base card and for the ink for the sentiment from "Perfect Punches". The DSP is from the retired Greenhouse Gala. I used "Fabulous Florets" for the flowers and leaves because they look very similar to the flowers on the DSP. I stamped with More Mustard and cut them out. The sentiment panel was punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch and the die cut piece behind it was done with the Lots Of Tags Label 2 Sizzlit. I used several Dimensionals to pop up everything and made a "Mary Brown" bow with Baja Breeze Ribbon Seam Binding using a Round Ice Brad. I think I should have stamped the sentiment with Baja Breeze and used Cherry Cobbler for the die cut piece. Maybe next time. Thanks for stopping by!!
