Flower Fold Dare

I'm back with another club project for this weekend. My other club card is a little more time-intensive, and I hadn't used the Big Shot on either project, so I pulled that baby out to make a sweet and simple(r) card. I used colors from the Color Dare challenge: Tempting Turquoise, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Not Quite Navy. The layout is from the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge (flipped). I think these two challenges were made for each other! I'm also entering this in the second challenge at SUO Challenges, which was to use the Big Shot.

I started out by cutting a Top Note with turquoise textured card stock and embossing it with the Elegant Lines folder. Next I made my flower with the two smallest of the Flower Folds flowers, made from retired Pumpkin Pie DP and Not Quite Navy textured card stock. I punched the centers from poppy and turquoise. (I did add the background panel to the layout - my card just seemed to need something back there.) The card is finished off with poppy ribbon and a sentiment from On Your Birthday.

I'm off to clean my studio - I'll see you on Saturday for the OCC challenge - I think it's a great one to finish off my hosting month so I hope you'll come check it out!

I really like how you pulled all of the Big Shot items together. The flowers against the embossed Top Note are my favorite element of this card. Thanks for playing with us at SUO Challenges!
