Another Missed Challenge

This card was made for another challenge a little while ago - again I missed the deadline because of computer problems but that was OK cos it was a REAL challenge for me! The colours from memory were Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant and Always Artichoke. I had no end of trouble trying to combine these colours so they looked half decent. I think it was the combo of three fairly strong colours that threw me but good I could use some Vanilla in there!

I stamped the flower twice, coloured them both and then cut out just the flowers from one image and offset it on top of the other with Silicone. As I wanted to use the sheer ribbon, I coloured some white with an Always Artichoke marker but it did not turn out a true Artichoke colour as I wanted.

Stamps: JustRite Stampers and Stampin' Up!
Card: SU Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla, Autumn Traditions DSP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Martha Stewart border punch, SU oval punches and Top Note die, rhinestones from my stash, Copic Markers, tiny bit of glitter on the flowers.

Is the flower a hydrangea? They are my favourite flower. It looks like yours took a lot of cutting out work! Worth it though! -its super pretty!
