The Spot Challenge #103 Color Challenge with the Ornate Garden Suite of Products

Hi There!  Hope you are doing well and are hunkered down at home!  This Corona Virus mess is just too crazy for words.  I began working from home this week and will probably do so for at least 4 weeks.  Since I work as an Import Manager for a Retail Chain, I can tell you that unless you are a gas station, grocery store, or pharmacy, if you are in retail, things are super tough right now.  We had to furlough many of our employees and take it down to the bare bones just to give us a chance to survive this thing.  It's so, so sad.... 

At least crafters have their crafts to keep them sane!  So to help jumpstart your creativity, we've got another Spot Challenge for you to check out.

For my design team card, I used Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride and Basic Gray with a little help from the new Ornate Garden Suite of Products.  The suite has two stamp and die bundles, an embossing folder, a ribbon duo and some beautiful gold embellishments. This suite is available to demonstrators to pre-order now and will be available to customers on April 1st!

Here's my card...

I started with an 11 x 4 1/4" piece of Basic Gray Cardstock that was scored at 5 1/2".  I typically use this as a top folding card but today I'm using it as a side folding card.  I added a 4 x 5 1/4" panel of Rococo Rose Cardstock that was embossed with the beautiful Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  With a scrap of Blushing Bride I cut a beautiful layer with the ornate Layers Dies.  I backed it with Basic Gray Cardstock to show off that gorgeous detail in the die cut.  I cut a front layer of Basic Gray and heat embossed the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set.  I stamped the single flower from the Ornate Style Stamp Set in basic gray onto Whisper White cardstock.  I used Stampin' Blends to color the image in and then fussy cut it.  the stem was cut from the blossom (by accident.. lol) so I adhered the stem with Multipurpose glue and popped up the blossom with Mini Dimensionals.  

Here's the inside of my card, which I kept super simple by just stamping the small single flower...

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Stay safe and craft!  Blessings, Tina
