Betsy's Blossoms

Today over at Create with Connie and Mary we have a fantastic Color Challenge for you...Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Basic Black.  I have to say I am going to miss Poppy Parade.  It's one of my favorite colors ever.  These colors go together so well and make for a vibrant and cheerful card.  For my card I used the new Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Set from the upcoming catalog.  There are some amazing new sets and accessories in there.  I wasn't sure about this set at first, but it's growing on me.  I stamped my flower in Poppy Parade and punched it out with my 2 1/2 in. Circle Punch.  I then added a black Glimmer Brad to the middle.  The Pool Party scalloped edge was cut out using the Decorative Trim Die and I added a Basic Black Taffeta Bow to finish it off.  I really love how this card turned out.  I can't decide if it's the stamp set or the color combo.   




Make sure you stop by Create with Connie and Mary and take a look at what the rest of the design team came up with.  We hope you will join us this week for this fabulous color challenge!  Have a terrific Thursday and take care.
