Petal Pizzazz Wishes

Mojo Monday sketch challenges are always fun. Its nice to have the layout for you. But when you have a color scheme, it makes it even better! I decided to combine the sketch with this color combination from Dawn. The closest colors that I could get to her Melon & Berry colors were Cameo Coral and Regal Rose.

I recently posted a technique called Poppin' Pastels that I did with my stamp club. Well, I chose to do that same technique on this card but this time on a dark colored base. I used Whisper White CRAFT Ink instead of the Versamark and then "pounced" my chalk/pastels onto the stamped image. To complete this card:
1. Cut Very Vanilla card stock to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score and fold in half to make a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" sized card.

2. Using my Big Shot and Texturz Plates, I ran my Very Vanilla card stock through to get the small raised polka dotted background. {TIP: Spray a little bit of water over the card stock to get a better impression.}
3. Cut the polka dotted textured card stock to 2"x 5-1/2" and place it over the Very Vanilla card stock base.

4. Cut Chocolate Chip card stock to 2-1/2" x 5-1/2".

5. Stamp flower images with Whisper White Craft Ink Pad and use Poppin' Pastels Technique.

6. Adhere the card stock to the bottom of the card and wrap Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon around the card (covering up the seam) and tie.

7. Using the Scallop Edge Punch, trim a Chocolate Chip card stock to frame the 2-3/8"x3" Cameo Coral card stock.

8. Stamp sentiment with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla card stock (2-1/4" x 2-7/8").

9. Layer Very Vanilla onto the Cameo Coral card stock.

10. Punch out a Scallop Square from Chocolate Chip card stock.

11. Stamp the bird image from Season of Friendship (111776) with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad onto a 1" square Very Vanilla card stock.

12. Layer onto 1-1/8" square of Cameo Coral card stock.

13. Layer onto the scallop square punched Chocolate Chip card stock with Stampin' Dimensionals and add the completed accent with dimensionals on to the card.

14. Thread hemp twine through the Chocolate Chip corduroy button and wrap around Regal Rose then tie. (You could use glue dots to adhere the button as well.)
