Double D Challenge


June Wedding~Anniversary Color Challenge

 Using this board for inspiration and the colors of Peach/Coral and Blues
 I will make this a short, my card for this challenge can be a wedding or anniversary card.  

I used Gina K Designs Card stock in Powder Blue, Peach Bellini and White.  Gina's stamp called Wild Blossom, and the sentiment from another stamp Duo, called Always and Forever.

Spellbinder border die, white layer cut, blue layer embossed.  The ink is also Gina K called Peach Bellini. 
It is so easy to ribbon as Gina also had matching powder blue ribbon.  

This is the card that I will enter in the Double D Challenge.

I am showing you this card, as I made it for the same challenge.  
Funny story, in a matter of a few minutes after the card was done,  
I managed to make it a hot mess.  Long story, but you know how 
it is easy to fix something and save it.  I colored this Penny Black 
Poppy using  no line coloring. I just wanted to use it again.  So I fussy cut it and put it on another base. Some days, you just have to go with what ever works. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, Enjoy and I love your comments.
