Share Joy Challenge #53

Hello, dear blog readers! 

This week's latest Share Joy Challenge is either a sketch, or a pretty color combination. I chose the color combination, because I love fuchsia! Let me tell you what I did, and what I used to create this!

When I saw the Diagonal Stripes Cutting Plate, I knew it had to be mine. It proved to be the perfect fit for my idea for this card. I used it on a piece of Lollipop card stock, and adhered the negative pieces onto my Sugar CS card base, using foam adhesive. Tip: Use the positive portion of the die cut, using temporary adhesive, to evenly space your pieces. Once they are adhered, gently remove the positive piece.

I then took Toffee, Granny Smith, and Blue Corn Card stocks, and heat embossed the floral images from the Fresh Floral set, and die cut them out. I layered them into a cluster onto a vellum circle, and adhered them to my card front.

For my sentiment, I heat embossed a lovely greeting from the Simply Stamped: Roses set, and added glossy accents to the center of the flowers. I also adhered a few rhinestones, and added white gel pen dots around my focal image.

Below is the graphic, along with the rules to playing along! I do hope you'll join us! I would love to see how you were inspired!
