Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Painted Petals


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I used the Painted Petals set to create my image using Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate and Soft Sky. The white jute ribbon and the embossed layer of Whisper White gave a neutral background to my card. 
I deliberately left off the sentiment since this could be a wedding card or a birthday card....I will wait and see! :)

Here are the colours for this week's challenge:

Here is the sketch from CASE This Sketch that inspired the layout of my card:

  9. Love how clean and fresh this is! Not using a sentiment is a great idea, it can be an anytime card and those are very handy to have! :)

  10. I am so sorry I am late with my comments for this challenge! Graduation happened and we had lots of company that stayed into the week after graduation. There was just no time at my computer!

    I love all the white with hints of color! Such a clean, fresh look! Great choice of embossing folder and ribbon.
