Flowers for Any Occasion

I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest the other day, but wasn't crazy with the color choices, so I pulled out my handy Color Coach (130118) and came up with So Saffron and Rose Red and added Very Vanilla for the main focal point.

Starting with a base of So Saffron card stock cut to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".  The next layer, Rose Red is 5 1/4" x 4" and Very Vanilla at 5 1/8" x 3 7/8".

I stamped with Work of Art (w-134111 / c-134114) with So Saffron and then kept stamping off four times (although the one above I did re-ink the 4th one for a change).

Then Gorgeous Grunge (w-130514 /c-130517) with Rose Red.
I stamped a flower from Flower Shop (w-130939 / c-130942) and from Petite Petals (w-133152 / c-133155) with Rose Red.  Punch with Pansy Punch (130698) and Petite Petals (133322)

Finish with wrapping a piece of bakers twine or linen thread into a couple of loops around your fingers and then pinch together in the middle before attaching to the card front and covering with the large flower. 

Think of all the color combinations that could be used to change up this card.  Unlimited!

Thank you for checking in today.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
