CDSWCC34/Thinking of You


My card for the CDS color challenge at Paper Craft Planet.

The colors are: Not Quite Navy (dark navy blue)More Mustard (mustard yellow)Basic Gray (dark gray)optional: Baja Breeze (light blue)neutral: white or vanilla.

I used Dk gray for my base, solid navy for the center, more mustard for the container of flowers and light blue for the sentiment.

The image is CDS Everyday Jar-gone. I stamped the container on mustard paper added some larger beads to bottom to dress it up. The flowers I cut the stems and just added them to container. I used stickles for the flower centers, colored the flowers with pure pink and pure yellow Zig Markers.

my senitment is stamped on a circle that I folded in half. I used the navy cs and folded two corners over and adhered my container to it. This way to fold a card makes a great way to give the gift of money. Just slide it in the opening.

Oh, I love how you did the corners turned down! Really cute! The little beads in the jar are so cute, just like the real stones that people put in vases! Good job.

What a fun and creative card!! I like how you paper pieced the vase and then added the flowers. I forget that vases don't have to be clear! LOL!!
