Creative Sketches Challenge-CS47C

This week challenge is a color challenge and I must confess I would never had put these colors together, but to my amazement they are gorgeous together. They are Cherry Cobbler, Basic Grey and Peach Parfait.

Here is my card:

Supplies are all Stampin Up Products:
Card Stock                                  Basic Grey, Cherry Cobbler and Peach Parfait
Ink Pad                                        Basic Grey
DSP                                             Paisley Petals
Lace                                             Victoria
Brad                                            Antique collection
Embossing Folders                      Vintage Wallpaper, Perfect Polka Dots and Square Lattice
Stamp Sets                                   Because I Care, Four Frames
Punch                                           Decorative Label

I wanted to do something different this week so I embossed each piece of card stock with a different Textured Impression Embossing folder. Then I sanded the Vintage Wallpaper to give it a more aged look. I haven't gotten my Simply Scored Tool yet so made my medallion the old way by cutting a strip of DSP 1x12 and scored one side at 1/2 inch and flip over and scored the other side at 1/4 inch to give the peaks and valleys. Then I folded along the score marks and added a punched out circle to give stability. I used red sticky tape to adhere to my lace strip.  I think this is the first Vintage Card I have made without  any bling.  I hope you have enjoyed my card this week.
