Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge


Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday!
Last night I made a card for this weekend's Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge over on PCP. We were to use Real Red, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip and White. I found this to be quite a challenge! I think nautical when I think of these colors but to do this challenge you must use Clear Dollar Stamps and so since I don't have any nautical ones that are CD, I used my Leaf Impressions set and stamped the leaves in RR, CC and BB. I also used Real Red DP, and Bashful Blue, which I ran through my cuttlebug with a springy flower ef for the red, and the snowflake ef for the blue. I cut each color into strips and mounted on Papertrey Chocolate CS base... LOVE this Papertrey paper!!!
The CD verse is stamped in Chocolate Chip and is Ecc. 3:1 "For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven." I then punched a couple daisies from white, sponged in RR, cut a chocolate stem with the SU! embosslit, and punched two butterflies with the Martha Stewart Punch. I added some bling and a bashful blue ribbon. While this is not my usual style, I guess it pulled together pretty well.
Thanks for taking a peek. Have a blessed weekend!
