Stitched with Kindness

Every other week our team has an Inspire, Create, Share Challenge to give us a kick start to making a card or project.  One such challenge was to use a particular colour palette and to see what we could make.  My contribution was to make two cards, purely because I was being indecisive.  I wonder which you will prefer. 

I am so pleased to have Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow in our colour assortment again, so I chose to use those for my card bases, which are cut to the Stampin' Up! Notecard size of 5" x 3 1/2".  Shimmery White card to adds a little lustre and luxury to the layer, and further texture is added by using one of the Stitched Label dies.  These dies have an apt name as they add a dimension that reminds me of smocking on clothing.

Now we come to my indecision - should I focus on Mossy Meadow or Mint Macaron?  I couldn't decide, so I made two cards and with each one I matched the ink and the layering oval to the base card.  The layers, ink and flowers all complement each other well...but I still can't decide on a favourite!  Which do you prefer?

I love this sentiment.  I have used it plenty of times before, and I'm sure it will continue to be one of my go to stamps.  The flower accents are cut using the Springtime Impressions set  and are perfect to finish off the card (and complete the colour challenge!).  My top tip for attaching them to your card is to use glue dots - the glue dots sit behind the hole that is the centre of the flower, yet are large enough to securely attach them, leaving the petals unattached adding some further dimension.  A simple gem hides the glue dot and adds sparkle too! 

What would you create with these colours?
