Fruitful Blessings Hello Friend

It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a color challenge. CCMC788

Remember when Wild Wheat first came out?  There were a lot of strong feelings and opinions about the color.  Have your feelings changed or is it the same?  It will never be my go-to color but I am definitely warming up to the color especially as we slip into Fall.


Yes, I am using my favorite image from the Fruitful Blessings stamp set & bundle.   I used Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow, and Wild Wheat Stampin' Blends to color in the bouquet.  It is so fun to see how many different shades you can get from the Light and Dark Blends.   I also brushed on Wink of Stella to the flowers for that extra shine and die cut the bouquet using the coordinating die.

Card Base-Wild Wheat CS 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2"

Calypso Coral layer-4" x 5-1/4"

Very Vanilla CS layer 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" I used the Distressed Tile 3 D Embossing Folder on this layer.  

Before attaching the Very Vanilla layer to the Calypso Coral CS I wrapped and tied a bow with the Gold & Vanilla 3/8" Satin Edged Ribbon.  

The bouquet is attached to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Fruitful Blessings stamp set.  The sentiment label was cut using the Autumn Leaves dies.  I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies.


Inside I added a Calypso Coral CS Strip also embossed using the Distressed Tile Embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Fruitful Blessings stamp set.


Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created with the colors.
