Color Combos Galore #238 - Orange Crush

Just in time for some semi-spring type of weather, here is week one of the April challenges over at  Color Combos Galore:

Very spring-y...right?
I just made a card this week, but if I have time, I might just sit down and make a layout with these colors, too.  I love 'em :)

Supply List:
Stampin' Up! - Cardstock (Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, Basic Grey); Stamps (Fabulous Florets), Ink (Pumpkin Pie, Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal); Rub-on; Chalk; Linen Thread; Embossing Folder (Perfect Polka Dot); Die (leaves); Rhinestones
Spellbinders - Embossing Die (Fancy Tags 3)
American Crafts/Dear Lizzy [Neapolitan] - Patterned Paper
other - burlap

I chose Inspiration Photo #1: Focus on Trend - Chalkboards; Additional inspiration came from photo #2 - I used a polka dot embossing folder on the background, and striped patterned paper...both inspired by the straws; photo #3 - a bouquet of flowers for my focal point, isn't that bouquet in the story board beautiful?; and photo #4 - I layered the flowers, inspired by the charms.
For my 'chalkboard' element, I die cut a label out of Basic Grey cardstock.  I then smeared some white chalk around the center, and used a white 'friend' rub-on for the sentiment.

The deadline for all of April's challenges is April 28th...be sure to play along, there's plenty of time for this one :)

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!
