30 Day Gratitude Challenge: Day 13 (Fab Friday Color Challenge)

Good morning!

We've reached the midpoint of the week, Aidan is trying out for the school swim team so we're swimming every night at different times and different pools so it's definitely been an adventure but he's having a lot of fun.  It's also fun seeing so many friends from summer swim and catching up.  It has however meant I've had a little less time in the studio this week but I wanted to play along with this weeks Fab Friday Color Challenge for today's gratitude challenge.  Now I'll admit this color combo threw me off a little so I decided to play around with several stamps and see what I could build.

The cardbase is Whisper White Thick cardstock and then I added a piece of Pretty Peacock  cardstock cardfront.  On this piece I started by stamping with the Birch stamp set in Blushing Bride ink and then sponged around the edges with Soft Suede ink. Next I used the Swirly Frames set and stamped the large circle in Pretty Peacock ink before embossing it with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (I embossed it twice, once in each direction for a little extra texture).

Next I took a piece of the 2019-2021 In Color Designer Series Paper in Terracotta Tile and matted it with Crushed Curry cardstock.  For the greeting I cut a circle out of Soft Suede cardstock with the Layering Circles Dies and then stamped the smaller circle in Crushed Curry ink on Crushed Curry cardstock.  The greeting is from the Here's a Card stamp set and was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White cardstock and then sponged around the edges with Soft Suede ink.  I used dimensionals to pop several of the greeting layers up and finished the card with some Terracotta Tile 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

I like all the layers and texture this card has, nice and simple but still unique.
