Color Hues #7 and The Flower Challenge #51

Hello friends.  I'm playing along with both the Color Hues Challenge and the The Flower Challenge today...gotta love when you can combine two challenges!!  Color Hues is asking for cards with Blue & Magenta and The Flower Challenge is looking for "embellishments" on your flower cards, so I combined both and came up with this...


I used Penny Black's scarlet majesty cling stamp with SU!'s Magenta Madness ink for the Poinsettia and love how it came out in just the single color!  My sentiment comes from Penny Black's rejoice with joy stamp set and I used Concord & 9th's MIDNIGHT (navy blue) ink.  


I used a few magenta colored sequins for my embellishments on the Poinsettia and that was all the card needed for both challenges and it still came out CAS too!

You can check out all the details for the Color Hues Challenge HERE and the details for The Flower Challenge right HERE.


 


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  7. Marcia, this was a gorgeous sight to wake up to! You continue my love affair with Poinsettias this Christmas - this bright magenta is a fabulous addition to its rainbow of beauty! Navy was the perfect choice of blue, too... such a classic!
