Creative Card Crew - Challenge No. 3


The theme for this week's challenge was to use warm colours and I've really enjoyed making this card & am pleased with the finished result.
I used my brand spanking new SU Playful Petals stamp set, I've coloured it using SU inks Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie & Summer Sun with a blender pen, then I've cut out the image and decoupaged it - oh yes & the leaves are done with Garden Green. The sentiment is also SU from a set called Cheer & Wishes & if you can't read it clearly (not the best photo I admit) it says "Warm Wishes" which seemed rather appropriate for this card.
I've used SU cardstock Summer Sun, and the layer underneath the flower has been cut using an X Cut die. I don't know where the DPs came from as I was given a stash recently but have no idea whose papers they are and I've embossed a strip of the paper with a Cuttlebug folder and chalked over the raised image so it shows a bit more clearly.
