Flourishes for Colour Me…!

Wednesday already?!  Wow, this week is going by fast! But it also means it’s time for a new challenge at Colour Me….! It’s our Monochromatic week and our colour of choice is Old Olive.


I didn’t get a chance to play along with last week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches but I loved it so much, I just had to use it for this card.

I went with a square card, leaving a large border of white, in order to show off our lovely challenge colour. For the stamped image, I took my inspiration from our challenge photo and incorporated some flowers, using the Flowering Flourishes stamp set.

I embossed the image onto a piece of the card stock, before cutting it into the panels and then anchored everything with a piece of vellum, because I didn’t want to cover up the pretty image too much. A few pearls, here and there, topped everything off.

Our challenge will end on March 10th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules – you can check them out here.

You must stop by Colour Me….!  and check out what the Design Team has come up with! I promise you will not be disappointed! RosemaryHayleySam, TaraKatie, and our lovely Guest Designer for the month of March, Michelle
