This card is doing double duty as a stamp club project, so I elected not to make it a baby card. The background technique is called faux tile, which I was inspired to teach my club after seeing this card. I didn't end up CASEing Lynn's gorgeous card but instead went a different direction so I could showcase some new products from the Occasions mini.
This is a 5 1/4" square card. The main image comes from the fabulous stamp set Apothecary Art and the new Framelits labels. I took my colors from the inspiration photo: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizazz, and Early Espresso. I thought the flowers in the image echoed the floral elements on the shower table. For accents I chose coral ribbon (which is also on the table in the photo) and a larger label of pear DP. To give the green just a little definition against the blue background, I edged the DP with espresso marker. The tile background is a 5" square of Pool Party card stock, scored into 1 1/4" squares, stamped with the SAB set Fresh Vintage, and sponged across the score lines for definition. Finally I incorporated the rhinestones that appear in the background of the photo as center accents for the flowers.
OK, that's it from me - I hope you enjoy this challenge and come play along with us! Be sure you check out what the rest of the team has created as well, and have a wonderful weekend!
