Vintage Hues

Hello my Classy Cards 'n Such friends! It's Diane posting today.  We have a fun, and pretty, challenge for you this week using the gorgeous Inspiration Photo from Design Seeds below.

I designed my card with two of my newest dies in mind. As soon as I saw these dies I asked Beverly to order them for me. She has both in stock right now, so don't miss out!! Oh wait, I bet you want to know what I am talking about right??

The first die is what I used for my base to build on.  It's called Billie's Circle by Joy Crafts. I have a love for lattice dies, so intricate and detailed, and this one has both...beautiful!!

The second die is also a Joy Crafts called Ribbons and Bows. This in an interesting die, as you could weave ribbon through it if you wanted to, or do as I did, and just lay a piece under the die for a contrast!

I added a flower I made with a Cheery Lynn Designs die Judy's Blooms. Right now ALL Cheery Lynn Designs dies are on sale at Classy Cards 'n Such!

I colored my flower with Susan's Gardens PanPastels Flowering Coloring Kit, using the colors Magenta and Permanent Red. Using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive I sprinkled a tiny bit of Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Crystal Ice glitter on for some added texture!

A few foliage embellishments were added to the flower, using Marianne die Anja Leaves 2, and Cheery Lynn Designs Olive Branches.

That's it for today! I hope you enjoyed today's post and will join us in our challenge for this week.  Don't forget, next week our challenge will be a handmade flower from the Susan's Garden collection. Need one?  You may purchase one here There is still time!  I can't wait to see your creations!!
