Elegant Egg-let Flower- Color Throwdown #77


This week the Color Throwdown team has a refreshing color combo with Elegant Eggplant, Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery. What great colors to work with!

Here is what I came up with. The Elegant Eggplant flower was made using the Eyelet Border Punch, what a fun and easy way to make paper flowers in any color you want!

I added a Clear Rhinestone brad to the center of the flower and a piece of the new Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon as the leaves to complete the flower. I mounted the flower onto a Kiss from the Occasions Mini catalog.

I covered the Baja Breeze card stock with a piece of Vellum card stock I sent through my Big Shot with the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots impressions folder and then sewed them together and mounted it onto the Whisper White card base. The sentiment on the banner is from the new stamp set Messages for Mom.

Thanks for looking!
