I loved the color combination at ColourQ Challenge #121, but I didn't know how much until I combined the Basic Grey "June Bug" papers with a new stamp I got from Close To My Heart.
Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #150 provided the perfect design for these papers.
Except for the Kraft CS, which photographed rather dark, all of the papers were scraps, including the red embossed heart in the beak of the bird. It was part of a Christmas ornament that was embossed, but didn't turn out. I am definitely a scrapaholic, keeping all sorts in files, tubs, and on my scrap table. I need a 12 step program to make more cards! Once again my Kraft circle and both parts of my flower are pop dotted for extra dimension as my favorite thing to use on cards or scrapbook pages for the Basic Grey Challenge #61. One of the easiest things to do on this card was to cut the white flower on my cricut, then stamp. The stamp set told me what size to make the flower. Love it!
