I’ve combined the fourth OWH Labor Day Virtual Card Making Party challenge with this week’s Dynamic Duos color challenge.  The color challenge is to pair Perfect Plum with a color of the participant’s choice.  I picked Certainly Celery.  The VCMP challenge is to create a love-themed card using OWH Stars & Stamps sketch #29.  This is a great sketch for clean and simple styled cards, but it holds potential for being dressed up with embellishments if you’d wish.  I kept it pretty CAS, but I rounded a few corners to keep it from looking too boxy.  The blossoms were stamped onto scrap cardstock, cut out, and then adhered to the focal panel.  The bottom left blossom is popped up a bit with a cardstock shim underneath it, to add just a little dimension to the card.  I had one blossom left over so I used it to perk up the inside of the card.  I wanted to add some sort of visual interest to the green panel, so I stamped the leafy image on it, after stamping the ink off once on scrap paper. Even though the sentiment is from a set called “Masculine Messages”, I think this particular one works well on cards for either men or women.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I still have some more VCMP challenges to work on, so off I go…

Stamps: Best Blossoms (Stampin’ Up); Masculine Messages (Gina K. Designs)
Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla (SU)
