Girly Flower Lines and Annie's Flower- CCCCact27

It's time for another Curtain Call Color Challenge with Stacey! She has picked some fun colors from this weeks inspiration photo of these flowers. They are Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Certainly Celery.

I was watching my friend Lou's 10 year old daughter, Annie, today and she wanted to play along too, so we both made cards for you to look at!

First we have mine. I had fun with this card! I just kept adding things to it and then had to stop myself before this card got too out of control! :) But I like the end result!

I used the hostess level 3 stamp set Flower Lines for the flower images. I stamped them onto watercolor paper using Basic Black StazOn and then water colored them using Aqua Painter pens and Blender pens withe the colors for this week. I then mounted it onto a piece of Certainly Celery card stock. I took a piece of vellum and ran it through the Big Shot using my Perfect Dots embossing folder and then curled up the corners using my bone folder. I put the vellum onto the Pink Pirouette card stock, took a piece of Pink Pirouette 1 1/4' ribbon tied it around the card, added a few embellishments and and sentiment and called it done! My card measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" .

Next we have Annie's card! This was her first color challenge and she did a fantastic job! (And I think she is hooked on color challenges now!)

She designed and made this card 100% all by herself. She used the 5 Petal Flower punch to make the flower, the Word Window to make the stem and the Star punch to make the leafs. The flower and the free drawn and cut out clouds are both popped up on dimensionals.

She even decorated the inside with a few Word Window's punched out in the coordinating card stocks!

I think I found myself a new color challenge partner! :)

Thanks for looking!

How fun you got Annie creating. Once in a while my daughter will join me, we have a good time.

Your card is killer! I tend to forget about vellum. It looks smashing with the polka dots! Great job!
