Opposites Attract

Ok when I wrote that title I totally had a flash back of dancing in my parents' front room to Paula Abdul Opposites Attract...  hehehe!  Anywho... I am here to share a card I made for several challenges that really inspired me this week:



Materials Used:
PTI :Mega Mehndi Medallion, and Canyon Clay Ink
Martha Stewart Clear Stamps
Fiskars Birthday Sayings Clear Stamps
Glimmer Mist
Heart Brad
Paper Piercer
George Basic Shapes Cartridge

I wanted to get a close up of the flower, which I made with various diecut hearts.  I cut them at 3 different sizes after stamping my paper with the Mehndi Medallion.  I then spritzed them with Glimmer Mist and molded them with my fingers.  Once they dried I pierced them and added a brad to the center. 

The color choice for this card is not something I would normally go with, but I loved the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge with using opposite colors on the color-wheel and this is where my paper took me!

Challenges I am entering this into are
PTI - Make It Monday - Make a flower from another diecut
CAS-ual Fridays - Opposites
Simon Says Stamp - Flowers

Thank you for stopping by and make sure you enter your name for my blog candy!!!
Happy Crafting!

Very pretty. Love the curled flowers. I do have to laugh because I heard a Pretty in Pink song yesterday and had a flashback. : )
