You Are Amazing Card

Hello! I've been working on this You Are Amazing Card for the last couple of days. I knew I wanted to use the Harlequin stencil by Tim Holtz, but then I had to ponder what came next. The colours used are from this weeks challenge at Colour Me! and include: Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Coastal Cabana and Neutral. After much debate and playing, I finally decided to use the Painted Petals stamp set by Stampin' Up!. I used a narrow piece of patterned paper from the Back to Black dsp along the outside of the stenciled panel and adhered the panel to a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock which was adhered to a base of Coastal Cabana. Next, I stamped the focal panel then layered it onto Old Olive cardstock. The last step was securing the twine and then adhering the panel to the card. That's it! I would also like to enter this card into the Ohh So Pretty challenge at Papertake Weeekly. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back soon.
