CPS & Embellish Combination Challenge Entry by Sabrina

CPS #184 combined with Embellish Paper Piecing Color Challenge :: Sponsored by My Favorite Things


 
I have entered a previous posting for the CPS #184 challenge, with a commitment to enter another in case a previous posting was not allowed. So, this time, I have combined it with Embellish Magazine's color and paper piercing challenge. I ended up making this card twice because I got carried away with the paper piercing and did not care for it. I was able to save the card base with the paper pierced border I created, and may use it some time in the future. So, this card is the second try. 


I used scraps to make this card for...Did I mention that this card is for my daughter's Mother-in-law's birthday? Spellbinders, Labels 4 is what I used to cut the shape around Penny Black's Poppy Quote stamp which I used my daughter's Copis for to fill in. The kraft card base and Labels 4 shapes are ink distressed with Versa Magic Tea Leaves and VersaFine Vintage Sepia. The yellow Labels 4 shape and the green. yellow, and white patterned paper are pierced around the edge.
The darker green required for the Embellishment challenge is found in the ribbon I pleated, The sentiment and the Poppy Labels 4 piece are popped up. To completed the card I constructed a handmade envelope.



I know that Wendy will love the colors, as yellows and greens are some of her favorite colors. At least they were a couple of years ago when we were talking about changing colors in her home.
