SIP #104 Color Challenge with Concord & 9th Petals and Pallets Bundle

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I hope you had a wonderful Father's Day weekend!  The card that I'm sharing for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge this week is actually the card that I gave my sweet hubby for Father's Day!  

I was a little stumped with the colors at first but then I thought.. flowers!  You can pretty much make any colors work with flowers!  Jeff has worked so hard the last few years with our landscaping and flowers so I thought this card was perfect for him!

Actually Jeff and I just looked at some window boxes and deck boxes so I thought I'd pull out my brand new Concord & 9th Petals and Pallets Bundle and make a crate of flowers using the required colors in this week's challenge (SU Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Island Indigo).   I have to tell you that I saw the Concord & 9th video for this new bundle the night before it was released and I stalked their website until it was available!  I was afraid it would sell out if I didn't get it right away!   For this card I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" piece of 110# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock that was scored at 5 1/2 for a top folding card.  I used the new SU Embossing Paste mixed with a drop of Crumb Cake reinker and the Brick Decorative Mask to make my background.  The wooden planks were stamped on Crumb Cake Cardstock with Soft Suede Ink.  After cutting out my crate I added the dove tail stamp for the corners and scored my cardstock to glue the back to my cardfront.  I stamped the flowers from the Stamp Set in Berry Burst and Island Indigo and my leaves in Lemon Lime Twist and cut them all out with the coordinating dies.  I also cut out a couple of fern leaves from the retired SU Botanical Builders Stamp Set.  I used the Lawn Fawn "happy" die to cut out Gold Foil Cardstock and adhered to the front of the crate.  The I'm with you sentiment is from the Mama Elephant Organic Blooms Stamp Set.  I stamped it with SU Berry Burst Ink onto white cardstock and cut it out with scissor and then adhered with tear tape.  Last but never least, I added three gold Pretty Pink Posh Sequins.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings!  Tina
