Rosey Bokeh

Hello All,
I hope this post finds you well and warm.
The card I have for today has its inspiration from The Paper Players Challenge #227 (Which by the way was my dorm room number in college.).  On my own, I would have never put these colors together but they work fabulously together!


The bokeh background was done using a green-blue base then used lost lagoon by Stampin' Up!  to layer the dots for the bokeh pattern.  Then a final coat of blue for the foreground.

The 'crisp cantaloupe' was more of a challenge.  I don't have that color on hand BUT I do have Blendabilities Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo. I colored the roses by blending those colors together and just love the way it turned out.
Embossed the ferns in tan, added a border, and finally the sentiment which I think is very fitting.

Well enough chit chat here it is..

Card Size: 4.25x5.5


Showing Detail
Love, Love, Love how the roses came out! It isn't 'crisp cantaloupe' but a little 'pumpkin pie' and 'melon mambo' will go a long way.

That is all for now.. Thank you for stopping by and we will see you soon!
All the best,
Shawna
