Thank You for Color Throwdown #294 challenge

Hi friends.  I am playing along with the Color Throwdown #294 challenge this week. 
 I love these color choices and had to play along.  I made a Thank You card for someone special.
My card base is Sahara Sand, a Whisper White layer, and Coastal Cabana DSP.  I inked the edges of the DSP with Coastal Cabana ink.  I used my new Creative Expressions Californian Collection - Beverly Hills die to cut the pretty white layer and stamped the sentiment from SU Perfectly Penned in Coastal Cabana ink.  I stamped the flowers from Flower Shop and Petite Petals in Strawberry Slush ink and mounted them with foam dimensionals.  The leaves from SU Peaceful Petals are stamped in Sahara Sand ink on SS CS and inked with SS ink for more dimension.  I added a piece of Strawberry Slush CS under the die cut to finish my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.
Happy Stamping,

  4. JoAnn, so wonderful to enjoy your post again. I am so loving this stunning die, and the way you've used it as the focal point for this perfectly elegant card. The beautiful blue background is lovely behind this white cutwork look. The way the shaped leaves fit into the die shape is a great design. TFS & Hugs
