Freshly Made Everything Eleanor for Connie and Mary

Connie and Mary are on their way to the SU! Convention, so the challenge is active for TWO weeks this time around! That means PLENTY of time to play along with these FUN colours! Check it out:

Doesn't that look fun?? I was a little thrown when I saw the Cherry Cobbler in there with the other colours, but then I thought, "DUH! Accent!". And that's just what I did!

I started off with a So Saffron base (which I promptly misplaced and then found AFTER I finished the card *sigh*) and added a piece of So Saffron Designer Series Paper from the Subtles Paper Stack, which I pretty much ATTACKED with my diagonal scoring plate for the Simply Scored. Do you like the pattern??

Before adding my piece of Pool Party Cardstock, I tied a knot in a piece of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon and then attached it to the cardstock. It was adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals. Next came the Old Olive layer and finally the stamped image layer.

I stamped the "vine" from Everything Eleanor in Old Olive on Whisper White and then matted it on a piece of Old Olive Cardstock. I then stamped the flowers in Cherry Cobbler and hand cut them (three layers each). They were adhered to the front using glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.

I added Dazzling Details AFTER I took the first picture:

I *think* you can sort of see them in the pic above.

And of course, no card is complete till the inside details are done:

What do you think?

STAMPS: Everything Eleanor
INK: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
PAPERS: Whisper White, So Saffron, Old Olive and Pool Party Cardstock; So Saffron and Old Olive DSP
ACCESSORIES: Simply Scored, Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Dazzling Details
