Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #51 - Sassy Salutations Birthday Card

Primrose Petals #1

Primrose Petals is my next colour on my Color Coach Journey......I was inspired by the image and sketch at Fusion this week, and by a card by Catherine Pooler where she made this card with a cool geometric strip down the side.

The Fusion image features a beautiful almost ombre cascade of flowers.....I loved the look but my Color Coach colour combo asks for Primrose Petals, So Saffron and Garden Green so I threw the green in instead of the orange tones. 

I sponged over a stencil (non-SU) - the green/saffron and saffron/primrose blended beautifully....then I combined some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder with some Black Embossing Powder to create a sparkly sentiment.

Here's a close up so you can see the sparkle on the sentiment....

Hope you like my card!

Primrose Petals is on the retirement list so don't delay...order this colour now before it is too late! Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper is only available until 30 June. The Itty Bitty Punch Pack is on this week's Weekly Deals, so check that out too. :)
