Thinking of You

It's been a while since I had a chance to make something for one of my favorite challenges Embellish Magazine Challenge. When I saw that this challenge revolves around square card, I got all giddy. I love making lil square cards, cause they go so well with a gift. 

With the summer nearing, I really loved this sweet little color palette.

At wee Memories this week, they are featuring a challenge called C.R.A.F.T.S. - Use Color, Ribbon, Acrylic, Flowers, Twine and/or Stamps. And because I can't really follow directions to a tee, I used a flower chipboard and some floral pattern paper, tulle instead of ribbon, and a sentiment for my stamps :)

To my dismay, I must have been on some color high. When I pulled out some s.e.i. Mimosa paper, I was so sure there were pink and yellow hues with some bridging into the orange/peach. It even has this beautiful luster to it, but when looking at this picture it really just looks orange and red.

Thinking of You
Stamps: (Little Frieda Daisies) The Craft's Meow
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink; (Mimosa) s.e.i.
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 11 Brown Sugar) Ranger

Embellishments: (Portrait Collection - Chipboard, Sew Brads) Crate Paper; (Tulle) The Craft's Meow Kit

I absolutely adore the Crate Paper's Portrait Collection - something about that blue hue in that set that makes it just all together perfect.

Thinking of You

If you look carefully, you can tell that there is this luster on the paper. It's what makes s.e.i. paper so fun. But note to self - check the color palette! I blame it on being out of practice ;)
