I made this card with Maddy in mind and I'm sending it to her. You can participate in the card drive too. Click HERE to read all about it on the Simon Says Stamp blog.
I started with a card base of Primitive White card stock then added a layer of Steel Grey and a layer of Pink Lemonade. For some reason when I looked at the colour challenge image I saw Steel Grey, not black. Hmph...I hope I don't get kicked out of the challenge. LOL! ;-)
I used the Graduated Diamonds MIX-ables stencil from My Favorite Things and some light molding paste to create the diamonds on the Steel Grey strip. I did that part first then set it aside to dry, and once I was ready to assemble the rest of the card the paste was completely dry. Sweet!
I created the main square by stamping roses from Blooming Roses onto a square of Primitive White. I used Pink Lemonade Premium Dye Ink and Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink for the flowers, and Factory Green Premium Dye Ink for the leaves. I wanted one of the flowers to be popped up for dimension so I used the Rose Bouquet Die-namics to cut out the large flower from Smooth White, then cut the leaves from Factory Green. I adhered the main flower with foam tape and inked the edges of the square with versamark ink, then heat embossed it with silver powder.
Then I created the sentiment flag by stamping the sentiment from Dandelion Wishes with versamark onto a strip of Steel Grey, and embossing it with silver powder.
On the inside I simply stamped another sentiment from Dandelion Wishes with Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink, then I used the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics to cut out the pretty lacy piece of Steel Grey.
Here are the supplies I used:
