SIP #20 Color Challenge - You've Got This!

Hello and Happy Happy Tuesday!  I'm scheduling this post as by the time this one goes live, Jeff and I will be in Half Moon Cay, Bahamas.  I'm really looking forward to a vacation.  It's been a busy year and we haven't had a chance to chill out in some time!  

This week's Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge is a color challenge!  I have always loved pinks and browns together and throw in a little bling and you have perfection!

When the Annual Catalog came out earlier in the year, I was on a "You've Got This" stamp set kick.  Well, here I go again.  Here's my take on this week's color challenge!

This week's card is a simple layered card.  I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" Early Espresso card base scored at 5 1/2".I added layers of the Blushing Bride DSP from the Subtles Background Collection first on my cardbase, and then another pattern mounted on more of the Early Espresso cardstock. I stamped my flower image from the You've Got This stamp set in Early Espresso on Whisper White.  I quickly cleared embossed the flower image and then watercolored  the flower in Blushing Bride Ink with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive for the stem and leaves.  I used gold stickles on the center of the flower and mounted the panel on more Early Espresso and popped it up on my card with dimensionals.  I added some Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins. I wanted a small sentiment for the outside so I used the "Thinking of You" portion of the sentiment that actually says "Thinking of You at Christmas" from the  White Christmas stamp set.  I used my banner punch to punch the end of the sentiment and adhered it with Dimensionals over some Gold Metallic Thread.  I added an Antique Gold Brad to the end of it.  This was a super simple card but really looks pretty.  Sometimes I need to remember that simple is not always a bad thing.  I tend to overthink my cards at times!
