Stampin Diva's Color Challenge 02

Welcome everyone to our monthly color challenge!!! This month I have selected soft colors that will be perfect for your Spring creations: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake or River Rock, Always Artichoke and Baja Breeze.

AND, to get your creative juices really going, we are adding a second challenge this month! Make a completely new and original (oh, okay, you can CASE, lol, but original to you) a 3-D project -- a basket, a box, jewelry -- whatever you want to make. You can also combine this challenge with the monthly Color Challenge!

AND to make it really interesting, the Design Team Members will pick their favorite project and one lucky person will be chosen as the winner for this challenge and receive a gift from the new Summer Mini! YUMMY!!!!

Come along and join me and the Diva Design Team, we are all about having fun!!

Here is my card I posted as part of the Design team.

I combined our color challenge with Stamping 411: Saturday sketch challenge  #195. I love the simplity of the design.

Card Stock:             Marina Mist, Crumb  Cake, Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze and Very vanilla
Stamp Pads:            Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze
Stampin Markers:   Always Artichoke, Real Red
Stamp Sets:             Element of Style, and Elegant Thank You
Punches:                  23/8 Scallop Circle
DSP:                       Springtime Vintage
Ribbon:                   White Satin(dyed with Baja Breeze), Always Artichoke Seam Binding
Embossing folders:  Square Lattice and Perfect Polka Dots

I know it looks like it took along time, but it really didn't. I cut the cardstock to the dimmensions stamping 411 gave, ran them thru the embossing folders, stamped images, use the markers to color the roses, make the flower using the scallop punch and dye the ribbon, and assemble. I think the hardiest part was picking the right colors for the right shape. My element of style didn't quite come out the way I wanted it. I wanted a more vintage look. Let me know what you think!!
