Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #39

Shawne is our lovely hostess this weekend for Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #39 at Paper Craft Planet.

Shawne's colors are:
Green Galore
Orchid Opulence
Only Orange
Neutral: White

I chose to accept this challenge using this beautiful new release CARNATION-JANUARY FLOWER OF THE MONTH from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

WHAT I DID: I used the Marvy Scallop Corner punch for all my corners. I just love this look. I cased Dawn's (TreasureOiler) card which was a case of Heather's (tankgrl) card. For the squares, I stamped the text from this stamp set and sponged the white edges with green galore. For the main image, I stamped the carnation image on the white then stamped it two times more on separate paper. I colored in the leaves with green and outlined the flowers with purple on the main image panel. On the other carnations I colored the carnations and cut them out then cut out the portions to put on top. I popped them up on the card. For the ribbon I decided to cut the ends in a v shape and place a brad at the base. For the finishing touch, I dotted the matted black edges with a white gel pen.
