Spring Green Floral with The Card Concept!

Hello Friends and Welcome to another challenge at The Card Concept! This week we have a color challenge for you and Lesley chose some of my favorites, including this gorgeous green~

I know many of us are truly done with winter, myself included, especially since we are shoveling out from yet another winter storm.  I just adore greens and natural elements and I am anxiously awaiting spring, so that is the direction I went with on my card~

My card is designed in the Elegant and Classy Style, which is defined as-

  • polished
  • shiny finish
  • sparkling embellishments
  • rich colour scheme
  • sophisticated sentiments
  • regal
  • sweeping
  • dramatic
  • monochromatic
  • layered textures
  • awe
  • impress

I started with an A-2 prefolded white card base from CutCardStock.   I added a layer of Moroccan Cocoa cs from the Flavours Gourmet Sample Pack
The flower was die cut, assembled and molded, using  the Sno Cone color from the Pop Tones Sample Pack.  This paper gives beautiful results when molding and shaping flowers.

The green leaves were stamped on Curious Metallic Cryogen White cs for a beautiful shimmer!
The white window panel is half of a pre-folded white card base.  
I used the Curious Metallic Cryogen White cs for the stamped and embossed inset panel. This panel was stamped with Stampin' Up's En Francais background stamp.

  Over that I placed a stencil and used Viva Decor Pearl Modeling Cream.  Both the cream and the Cryogen White cardstock have a beautiful shimmer and sheen to them.

I hope you can join is with this week's challenge!  What style will you choose?  Classy and Elegant?  Clean and Simple?  Vintage?  Head over to the blog and check out all of the great inspiration from the Design Team!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Lee Ann  :)
