It's my turn to host this week's challenge and I picked a theme I haven't picked very often.
Not sure why I haven't picked a feminine challenge more often, as most of my stamp sets fall into that category. At least as far as flowers can be considered a feminine theme.
So, flowers is what I went with. And pink.
Pink is probably the colour I use the least. But this year, I'm really liking the way three of the new 2017-2019 In Colors work together: Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig.
My design is inspired by a video I watched, done by Kylie Bertucci, a Stampin' Up demonstrator from Australia. Her card had multiple layers, but I pared my version down to just one.
The images are from Touches of Texture and Jar of Love stamp sets. I just stamped randomly - one of my favourite things to do! on the Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment was stamp first in the middle and then all the other images around it.
Using a framelit from the Layering Ovals set, I cut out the sentiment and layered it onto a Berry Burst scalloped oval from the same set. That was then popped up with dimensionals over a strip of Copper Ribbon. For some reason, I love the look of the copper with the pink tones.
