Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #41



Happy Friday! The start of the weekend. Is it just me or is time going fast? My... Well, Friday means it is Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet. So get out your Clear Dollar Stamps and come join me, I will be your hostess this weekend. Yay.

This weekend in honor of October being National Cancer Awareness Month I chose THINK PINK as our theme.
Challenge Colors:
Pinks (any or all shades of pink THINK PINK)
Neutrals: White, Vanilla, Black, Gray (use any or all)

I chose to use stamp set ASTER-SEPTEMBER FLOWER OF THE MONTH from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

WHAT I DID: My card base is 4 3/4 square. My fold is at the top. I started with using my corner punch on all corners than placing my pink panel in the Cuttle bug to emboss. Next I cut out my white panel 3 1/4 square and stamped the asters on it. I also stamped the asters on another of the same paper and colored them with the Pixie Pink SU Marker and accented with white gel pen. I matted with black that I used a brand spankin' new Martha Stewart Border punch I found this week. It is soooooooooo cool. Some butterflies are cut out (and you can use the butterflies like I did on the card ) and others are partially cut so you can pop them up by pulling the weeks forward (does not show up great in this photo). I cut out my asters and adhered the top three directly to the panel and popped up the bottom one with dimensionals and placed a rhinestone sticker in the middle. Lastly I punched my bottom corners of the white and black and used dew drops at the bottome of the white panel that I glued on with dimensional glaze. I hand stiched around my black panel.

Thank you so much for Visiting me today!
