PPA122 - Celebrity Color Challenge - A Dahlia Flower with Frostwood Lodge

This week the Pals Paper Arts is having a color challenge, PPA122 along with celebrity guest, Angela McKay, who is the guest artist of the week. The design team also has come up with some great looking cards to get everyone started on this color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla. To join, you can click here and go directly to the challenge. 

Here is mine
I will say that this was quite the challenge for me since I don't normally work with this color combination alot, but the DSP, Frostwood Lodge from the Holiday Mini Catalog came in very handy for this week's challenge to get me started.

I started this card with the embossing folder, Framed Tulips and than used Always Artichoke ink and the brayer to add the color to it which shows off the impression more, which is pictured above.

Next, I cut another piece of Very Vanilla (4 3/8" x 3 1/8") and ran it through the embossing folder called Stripes and placed in the middle of the frame. Hopefully you can see the impression on this close up picture.

Next, I added DSP Frostwood Lodge (4 3/8" x 1 1/8") along with cutting 2 strips of Cherry Cobbler cut with the scallop trim border punch for the middle before working on the Dahlia flower in the middle.
For the Dahlia flower, I used the 1 1/4" circle punch and cut out 8 circles and started to fold each one up before putting them together. Than used the Boho Blossom punch for the center along with a basic pearl. Added stampin dimensionals to the bottom of the flower before putting on top of the card. Below is the finished look. Hope you Enjoy!!
