Thanks….Southwestern Style

Hello hello!  Just popping in with another pretty colour combo from The Color Throwdown!

This week's colours are pink, green, kraft and gray- a little different but I always think to myself -  if there is green involved - then I can stamp flowers!

I began by stamping an arrangement of borders from the Southwestern Style stamp set from Papertrey Ink onto Vintage Cream card stock in Classic Kraft ink on an angle for a bit of interest.

 I die cut a Kraft card stock panel using the Stitched Rectangle Dies - (I was inspired by Amy Scheffer's use of these dies!)- and layered my stamped panel on top -so perfect!

I adhered those two panels to another Vintage Cream die cut panel and then popped up the whole thing onto a Vintage Cream card base.

Using the newest Make It Market Kit - Nostalgic Notions - I die cut and stamped the flowers and leaves and then popped them up onto my border stamped layer.  The inks I used were Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst and Lavender Moon for the flowers and Simply Chartreuse for the leaves.

I finished my creation by stamped the sentiment in Smokey Shadow ink and adding a little puffy heart :)
