Christian Paper Crafts Color Monday 108

Hello everyone! It's time for the latest Color Monday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts.

Here is the color story for this week:
The challenge: Using the colors in the color story as your inspiration create a project of your choosing. You may be inspired by only one color, of combination of two or three, or all of them. The choice is yours!
I was inspired by the rose pink in the color story and decided to use that as my inspiration. Browsing through my patterned paper stash I found the perfect paper from the Abriana Collection by K & Co that I felt best represented what looked to me like Regal Rose from Stampin' Up!®. 

I added Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence (retired) cardstock to the Regal Rose I had already chosen and used the cardstock as base layers for my patterned paper. The flower circles were cut out using my Cricut Expression and Elegant Edges cartridge. I do not own a sewing machine so, YES, that is hand-stitching that you see there. I used Bazzill stitching templates with a paper-piercer to make the holes and then stitched with some craft thread from Michael's. The sentiment I used is from a Verve stamp set called "Beautiful You".

This card design was inspired by Verve Diva Maureen's Viva la Verve Sketch:

I had the most fun making this card! First of all, I loved this sketch so, thank you Maureen. Secondly, I've never stretched myself to use three colors and I just love how well everything came together. Thirdly, the hand-stitching made me feel as if I was really putting a lot of love into this card and well, I did!

  1. This is so pretty and I just love the colors. Love that you use the Cricut, really reminds me, my Cricut is sitting there. If you were out of your comfort zone for the three colors, it really does not show. The stitching is amazing, so perfectly done, if I hand stitched it would be all over the place. :)
