Welcome back to another Inspire.Create.Challenge post! This challenge was a fun one to do! Our challenge is using these 5 colors in a project! I knew I was using the First Frost bundle this week as my Product of the Week so I envision the colors used in the flowers.

I started out with a Sahara Sand card base. I didn’t know if I would be able to use this color anywhere else on my card but it created the perfect backdrop! Then I layered on a 4 1/8″ by 5 1/8″ piece of Calypso Coral. I just wanted a small sliver to show to help with the pop of Calypso Coral in the flowers later. I adhered this layer with liquid glue.
Next I have a piece 4″ by 5 1/4″ Whisper White card stock that I ran through the Big Shot using the awesome Subtle Dynamic Textures Impressions Embossing Folder. It creates a linen like effect that can be subtle in some ways and a pop that pulls the card to the next level. I added this one with liquid glue as well.
I then needed some Pear Pizzazz so I went to the back of my Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper to see if that color was for sure in the pack. Since it was I looked at which pattern would work with my card but not over power it with what was already there. This leaves one was perfect! It has Pear Pizzazz and I still needed a leaf element in my card. I cut a strip at 2″ and flagged the end where I thought it would not be too much on my card. I layered this on with liquid glue.
Next I stamped the flowers. The First Frost bundle has a very watercolored look to it. I used Crushed Curry on the larger flower and Calypso Coral on three small flowers. Once I stamped them I ran them through the Big Shot with the coordinating dies.
I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick then die cut it out with one of the circle framelits from the Stitched Shapes set. I added this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Then I added the flowers with both liquid glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wanted them to hang off of the sentiment so the dimensionals helped keep them the same height. I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers for a little shimmer.
This picture above shows all the textures of the paper. The Designer Series Paper is a Specialty paper in which all the paper has this beautiful shimmer to it.
In the end I added some of this awesome Braided Linen Trim around the inside of the card and tying it into a bow. It just bring in this natural feel to the card. I then added one of the Frosted Epoxy Droplets. They are so pretty!
