Our Creative Corner with Colors and Punches

I am playing again at the wonderful blog Our Creative Corner where I am always inspired by the DT and the uniqueness of their challenges. This week they are combining a color challenge using these colors

and three different punches with one of them having to be a border punch. I made this card the other day and am just now able to post it....I had so much fun creating this one and hope you will scoot on over and give this challenge a try.

My card base is soft suede which I cut off a portion of the front and then used a Martha Stewart border punch to create a decorative edge, I then cut a piece of baja breeze which I also border punched. The regal rose I cut an eighth of an inch shorter all around and then ran through the big shot with the Stylized Flower embossing folder before attaching to the card front. I punched 4 scalloped circles in both the rich razzleberry and the regal rose and then embossed with a script embossing folder before wetting and scrunching....I attached these with a small brad after alternating the colors and after opening the bloom slightly, I allowed it to air dry. The leaves are made with a Martha Stewart leaf punch in soft suede and then ran through the divine swirl embossing folder. All of the embossing makes a huge impact in real life, but I couldn't get my picture to show it very well. My baja breeze piece is stamped with images from Stampin' Up's set "Simple Friendship" in baja breeze and highlighted with pink gems from Queen & Co.

I added a piece of rich razzleberry and regal rose which I border punched to the inside along with more from the "Simple Friendship" set.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you will be back soon. Love to have you stop by and hopefully you'll leave me a comment so that I know you've been here. Happy Day!!
