Color Challenge Card

Sometimes a card challenge helps to spark my creativity. I found a great color challenge over at Fab Friday. I absolutely love these colors together! The best part is it's a new color combination for me.

While I was hopping around several of the challenge blogs, I also stumbled onto SUO Challenges, which has an Easter Parade theme. This color challenge was perfect, so I combined the two together!

Baker's Tip: The pearls and a Vintage Faceted Designer Button to the center of my flowers. I gave them a little color first, with a Sharpie Marker. Immediately after coloring them, I wiped off the gems with a tissue, to lighten the color. Sharpies are permanent, so you have to work fast!

The flowers were constructed from scallop circle punches. You want to clip every other scallop and curl the petals, before stacking them. I posted a written and video tutorial on my blog for how to make paper flowers, if you need some guidance.
