2020 Stash Party # 6 - The Color of Love

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
This is project #6 in my 2020 Stash Self-Challenge
All of the projects I have made this year have been made from items already in my stash. 
I created this project for the Color Challenge at The Outlawz!  
My project uses the last three colors: Mauve, Beige, and Green.   For some reason, I saw was blue/violet so that is what I used on my flower.  We'll see how it works in the challenge.
The Optional Twist for the challenge was to use the word "Love!"  I only have one script die of the word love so that was an easy choice.  The difficulty was in finding the right position.  I didn't like it in any of the corners.  I absolutely love it across the flower and I think the black adds a little drama and a little tension between itself and the other focal objects!
The green gingham ribbon on this card was the catalyst for my project.  I used the ribbon on a previous project and I had a small piece still in my scrap pile.  All of the papers used in this project are over 10 years old.  The Bazzill colored card came in a pack of 25 assorted sheets. Bazzill papers.  I bought them back in 2011 at Big Lots for $2.00/package. Each time I went into the store, I would purchase at least ten packages.  So I still have tons.  My envelope photographed weird, but IRL it is a pretty salmon color that goes surprisingly well with the card!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you found some inspiration here!

  4. Your card is so pretty, I love the texture of that embossing and the patterned paper is lovely. I totally agree with you about the blue-violet. You matched it just fine. LOL we should have a Bazzill Use It Up challenge, I also have Chatterbox, Doodlebug and KIMemories card stock, too! WAY TOO MUCH. All 12x12 (I have tons of Stampin Up letter size). My only saving grace is that I do lots of 6x6 cards and I can cut the bases from the 12x12. xoxo

  5. Thanks, Aimeslee! I am working my way through. But like you, I have so much 12x12 card stock it is going to take a minute!
