I shied away at first, but then a light bulb went off and I envisioned my very simple-in-appearance card. I made the flower using the new Rainbows and Clouds die from our very own Lil Inker, Laura Pryor. I decided to use the small and large arches from the small rainbow to create 6 petals. I cut the arches from the free coral paper I created for the CTD. You can still download it HERE :]
I basically used one glue dot per "petal" and adhered them to a 1" circle. I hot glued the button to the center to help firm up the bloom. I added the MTME Branching Out cut file (trimmed into two pieces) for some foliage (and to use Garden Green :), and stamped the sentiment from the Lil Inker Rainbows and Clouds Sentiments in Pacific Point. That's all there was to it other than cutting/layering my top panel and rounding the corners. I popped it up on dimensional tape, and my card was done.
We certainly hope you'll take on the challenge this week and help to show everyone how well these colors work together! If you don't have these exact colors, just use the closest you have. Be sure to post a direct link to your project over at the CTD blog and use keyword CTD148 in any online galleries!
