Before I ramble on too much, let's get back to the challenge. The colours which Bronwyn has posted are lovely colours on their own but I don't use them together very frequently. Good practise, then, to force the issue and come up with something that isn't fully in my comfort zone. I wanted the card to use new products from the newly launched Occasions Catlogue but I only have a scant handful of products at the moment. My big order is somewhere between me and Utah.
The stamp set I finally decided to use is from the Sale-a-bration brochure and is a compliment to the gorgeous Botanical Gardens collection from the Occasions Catalogue. While I don't have the collection on hand yet, I was happy to play with what I had. For my base I used Very Vanilla followed by a layer of Perfect Plum. I topped that with another layer of Very Vanilla which I first stamped with So Saffron using the grid pattern from the You've Got This stamp set. Then I took the huge sentiment stamp from the Botanicals for You set and stamped it over the grid using Early Espresso ink.
Well, I had used all the colours in the challenge but the card looked rather bare. I took the three sizes of blossoms from the Botanicals for You set and stamped them on Whisper White using Perfect Plum ink. Then I fussy-cut those small blossoms, wishing my order had come in since two of the sizes have matching framelit dies. I used one of the smallest blossoms in place of the dot for the "J" in just and then glued the others in a random pattern in the lower portion of the card. To finish up the card I cut a solid Perfect Plum butterfly and a lacy So Saffron butterfly, layered them and then attached them half-way up the right side.
