The Paper Players is having a color challenge this week! The colors were perfect for creating with the Floral Background Thin Cuts die. I went with Fern, Wisteria and a long retired unknown blue as stand ins for the color challenge.
To create my card, I started by die cutting the floral background panel die twice, once in Fern and once in Wisteria. I then used the Fern panel as my base. A little fussy cutting later, and the Wisteria flowers were applied to the Fern background. I had originally planned on sponging on a blue background, but just happened to come across the light blue piece of pattern paper in my scrap drawer. I decided it was a perfect fit! Color was added to the center of the flowers with a Copic marker.
To showcase my sentiment, I layered the Stitched Scalloped Brackets Thin Cuts on the front, adding in a strip of Wisteria ribbon between the layers. Overall a super simple card, with a great pop of color!
