Kwerner meet Splitcoast...

These are not typical colors that I would choose, but I love them together! That is what is so great about Kwerner Design Color Inspirations. Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, More Mustard, and Whisper White were the colors used to comply with challenge #51.

This week I decided to also use the SplitCoast Sketch #227 (below).

The More Mustard card base was first covered in Rose Red, and then Chocolate Chip Good Morning Sunshine DSP. A paper pierced (using the crafters tool kit) band was placed on the lower have of the card. Another smaller strip of Chocolate Chip took a trip through my paper crimper and was adhered next. Two white Jumbo Brads were then adhered.

A large rectangle of Rose Red was clipped on one side using the Scallop Border punch. Next I took slightly smaller rectangle of More Mustard, and repeatedly stamped the flower image (from Cheep Talk) in Versamark. The images were then Clear embossed using a heat tool. Each flower got a silver brad center before the piece was adhered to the Rose Red.

The sentiment is actually a rub-on from Bright Delights. It was rubbed onto an oval in Whisper White. TIP: I used my Coluzzle (no longer available from SU!) for this, but the wide oval punch would have worked perfectly. I had an oval chipboard piece (non-su) that I covered and sanded in Rose Red. The two ovals look great when layered. A small Rose Red felt flower (Flower Fusion) was added with a brad to give the sentiment more 'pop'.

I challenge you to try this combination!
