Inspired Color Summer Card

Here is my card for this week's Kwernerdesign color inspiration challenge.

The colors we had to use are Really Rust, White, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Certainly Celery - it's hard to use so many colors on a card!

I used a new stamp set just released from Artful INKables called Bloomin Beauties for the flower. The leaf stem is a Sizzix die cut and the sentiment was cut and dry embossed using a petite rectangle Nestability.

I punched the scallop and circle pieces for my flower and added brads to the centers. They are attached to the card with foam dimensionals.

This card also covers the Split Coast Limited Supplies challenge to make a summer card with only 3 layers plus the card base, limited embellishments and no patterned paper.

Kristin over at Artful INKables is offering 10% off all her stamp sets for the month of July to be sure to check that out!

Thanks so much for coming by today!
