Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge


I have been wanting to join in for quite sometime for the Clear Dollar Color Challenge and this is the perfect week as my online friend, Cassie, is hosting:) The colors to use were mint green, soft yellow, brown, reddish/orange, and white or vanilla. If you go to the Paper Crafts Planet group you can see what SU! colors those are, but since I don't have any SU! I had to improvise:)

I used a set called Bloomin' Fun and a little tag set that were RAKed to me by another great online friend, Christi. I colored the flower and butterfly with Copics and for the flower head stamped twice so I could pop it up. I added embossing, brads and some glitter pen. I hope you like it and I sure had a lot of fun creating it!

Supplies:
Stamps: Bloomin' Fun, Tag, CDS
Ink: Black Tuxedo Memento
Tools: Swiss Dots, Stylized Flowers, Cuttlebug, EK Success corner punch, Labels 5 Nestibilites, EK Success threading water punch
Other: Brads, Recollections, Copics, Glitter gelly roll in gold
