Compose a Card with Becky -Challenge 3
I am participating in the challenge that you can find HERE at Becky's blog. It was difficult to work with this color scheme but I do like how it turned out. Really out of my comfort zone. Even though there were specific requirements like white embossed flower on Raspberry Fizz and a flourish stamped on Terracotta Tile, it still took me almost 2 hours to complete this. The flourish really is there ~ guess it didn't photograph well. You can see it if you click on the photo for a larger image. First I experimented with several different flowers until I got one I liked. Then the process of cutting out the flower and leaves. I did enjoy the time crafting though.
Supplies: PTI (unless otherwise noted) Raspberry Fizz Mix, Spring Rain Bitty Box Basics, Everyday Blessings and Raspberry Fizz Bitty Dot Basics patterned paper, Terra Cotta Tile cardstock
