It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This is the last of the Case the Catalog Challenges. The card we are "case"ing is on page 81 of the 2022-23 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalog.
This card was not one that caught my eye so I am glad it was chosen for us to case. The layout is interesting and what I chose to be inspired by.
I used the lovely Cottage Rose bundle and the Abigail Rose DSP. I stamped the flower in Early Espresso ink and colored it using Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. I stamped another leaf and added it to the flower. The sentiment was also stamped in Early Espresso ink. Around the flower I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems.
The card base is Early Espresso cardstock. I used 2 designs from the Abigail Rose DSP, a strip of Petal Pink cardstock, and 2 strips of Gold paper from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. On the inside I also added a strip of the Abigail Rose DSP and another smaller flower from the bundle.
I applied Wink of Stella on the entire flower to add a little more shine. I hope you can see a little of that shine in this picture and also the texture on the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge,
