Sending Smiles - Creative Colour Challenge #37

 Hi Everyone,

I'm having a go at this week's Creative Colour Challenge over on my friend Victoria's Blog and I'm using the lovely Sending Smiles stamp set for some #simplestamping. It's so easy to make a pretty card with this set, the flowers are lovely and there are lots of sentiments to choose from.  The colours for this week are:


1 piece of mango melody card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
1 piece of early espresso card stock 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
1 piece of cherry cobbler card stock 3 3/4" x 5"
Cherry cobbler ink
Mango melody ink
Early espresso ink
Pear Pizzazz ink
Sending Smiles stamp set
Framed Occasions stamp set
Multipurpose Adhesive


On the long side score the mango melody card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Create your design on the smaller of the two pieces of basic white - I started with the leaves and then added the flowers and the sentiment above. (see picture).

Adhere the stamped layer to the early espresso mat layer and then to the cherry cobbler layer and add to the card front using dimensionals.

Stamp a sentiment on the remaining piece of white card (I have used one from Framed Occasions) and added a couple more flowers. Adhere this to the inside of the card.

I hope that you like my card. What would you make with this colour combination? Why don't you give it a try?
