OWH VCMP CHALLENGE #11: Rainforest Color Challenge

Hello crafty friends! I hope your weekend has been awesome! Mine has been C.O.L.D….ok maybe not for some, but for this Southern Girl, lower 20’s and into the 30’s with lots of wind is just too cold.  I’m glad I had cards to make! Today you get to see my last three cards for Operation Write Home* Stars and Stamps Virtual Card Making Party. 

First up, Challenge #11: Rainforest Color Challenge - This is a color challenge to use GREENS AND A SPLASH OF COLOR.

I’ll list all of the challenges later, for now…….here it is:

This card was a ton of fun to make! The base panel is white card stock that I stamped with Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s Believe/Dream/Peace Designer Block Prints set. I used the leaf stamp for the base panel.

The green panel on the left is green card stock that I stamped with the same set from RST and just using the peg stamps.

VLVFeb Wk2_4

This bow is my attempt at an “Andrea Ewen” bow Open-mouthed smile.  I love her style and her bows are always gorgeous.  Purple is my splash of color so I added two purple roses. One was actually white so I inked it with Violet ink.

There is a better look at the leaf background and a pretty flourish.

VLVFeb Wk2_3

The sentiment is printed on my printer.
