SCS COLOR CHALLENGE CC154 AND MOJO25 - FRIENDSHIP BLOOMS

Today, I combined the SCS Color Challenge #154 of Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, and Pumpkin Pie with this awesome sketch from Julee Tilman's Poetic Artistry Mojo #25 Sketch. This card uses the new Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Friendship Blooms. This is just one of the stamp sets you can receive FREE with any Stampin' Up! purchase of $50 or more, now through March 17. E-mail me for details! ... nrileycm@cox.net.

The flower is stamped in Pumpkin Pie on to Whisper White CS, then I used a sponge dauber with Orchid Opulence classic ink to color the flower in. The leaves were stamped in Versamark onto Certainly Celery, then cut out. The center of the flower was created by punching Certainly Celery with the Boho Blossoms Punch, adding a Pumpkin Pie Felt Flower Fusion, then a Lilac Ice Rhinestone Brad.
