CTD395 ~ Sending My Prayers ~

I really do enjoy a good challenge.  Give me a color palette, sketch or idea and I am good to go!  This project is for the weekly Color Throwdown.  You can see the color palette a bit later in the post along with the other challenges I am playing along with today.  I had so much fun creating this card that I just have to jump right in!

I started with a 4.25 inch by 11 inch base (Stampin' Up Crumb Cake) scored and folded at 5.5 inches.  I trimmed up a bit of soft cream colored CS to make a slightly smaller mat.  I pulled out Our Daily Bread Designs' Majestic Medallion Die for the base and lattice layer (also created with SU Crumb Cake).  I die cut some foliage using ODBD's Fancy Foliage Die out of a soft sage card stock, cut and adhered to create my "spray."  I used ODBD's Pretty Posies Die, cream card stock, water mister and shaping tool to create my posies before adding a few pearls in each center and adding to my spray.  I stamped my sentiment on cream CS (Sending My Love Stamp/Die Duo) with coordinating Crumb Cake Ink.  I wrapped the sentiment panel lightly around a pencil until I got the desired shape and adhered it near the bottom of my flowers.  I added sentiment panel (also in soft cream card stock) to finish it off.  

So here is the color palette and LINK...

Die cutting perfection! I love how you have used the challenge colours and the way you have 'twined' the flourishes to use behind your roses.
