Designer Challenge "Host... Shar"!


Welcome to Designer Challenge Thursday. I'm so excited to share with you my first designer challenge and hope you'll be able to play with us! I can't wait to see what you'll come up with. Because I'm a huge flower fan {in case perhaps you're a newbie, or possibly living under a rock ---- KIDDING!} I decided to challenge you to make your own flowers, a minimum of three (3), they don't have to be the same, incorporate some kind of bling, and use them on a card or layout. But there is a teensy twist -- you must use this lovely color palette for your project.  
Here is my finished card. I used the My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found Sunshine 6x6 paper pad. The colors are perfect for this challenge!
I actually used five flowers with three larger ones for my focal point. I love mixing and matching colors, papers, patterns and styles when making flowers. I've also added a variety of foliage, jewels, ribbon, vintage lace, and hemp twine curly-cues. The circle background piece is Spellbinders picot edge circle. 
Clustering like-items in groups of odd numbers {3, 5, 7 etc} makes them more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Not just in crafting, but in all aspects of life, really. I find myself doing this rather unconsciously with pretty much everything.
I used a Spellbinders fancy label die for my sentiment. This one is from the Teeny Tags Greetings by My Creative Time.
Product List: My Creative Time, Teeny Tags Greetings My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found Sunshine 6x6 paper pad Martha Stewart punches - branch, hydrangea and hydrangea trio Punch Bunch fern Spellbinders fancy labels, picot edge circles, circle die Jewels and other bling, hemp, sheer ribbon, vintage lace, ink, Distrezz it All

  13. Thank you so much! I am so glad you liked my teacher bear with her studious glasses. Congrats to JenR too. Now your video went up after my project so I saw the colors as black not brown along with yellow and blue. Maybe we can just consider the black as a darker shade of brown. LOL

    I love your decorated tea cup.
