SCS Color Challenge Birthday

I made this card yesterday for the SplitCoastStampers Color Challenge - Orchid Opulence, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. When I first saw the colors, I said, "Eewwww!" But I saw there were some very beautiful cards in the gallery. So, I gave it a try.

The stamps that I used (six different ones) are from Gina K's Tropical Flowers. For the flowers with five petals, I inked them with Orchid and "rolled" the edges in Razzleberry. The "bunch" ones are inked with Orchid and "thumped" with Razzleberry. The three petal ones are colored with Old Olive and Razzleberry markers. The leaves are all done with Olive. I added centers of Razzleberry cardstock. I punched the corners on the top two layers (with a corner punch I got clearanced at JoAnn's) and left the bottom layer with all square corners and then sponged Old Olive around the edges. I added Star Dust Stickles to the flowers and Crystal Stickles to the flower centers. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics and is stamped with Rich Razzleberry.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

What a grat job of putting all those stamps to use on one card. Great idea to put those pretty flowers over the branches.

This is such a pretty combo. I love the way you thumped the Razzleberry. I have not used that color yet but I love it.. Great job on this one too.
