CMCC #3... subtle

Hello friends!!  Wednesday has arrived and with it a brand new color combo over at Colour Me!  First though must say thanks to everyone who submitted such lovely cards for last week's challenge!  This week we are working with three soft and subtle colors:  So Saffron (light yellow), Pink Pirouette (light pink) and Smoky Slate (soft grey).  All the challenge details can be found here.  I thought these colors were perfect for a mother's day card.  I used the current layout from CAS(E) this Sketch for my card.
 


I started by stamping the splatter image from the SU! set French Foliage twice using So Saffron ink.  I die cut the leafy branches using my Taylored Expressions Leafy Branch die from Smoky Slate cardstock and some My Mind's Eye patterned paper from the Chalk Studie Basics 6x6 pad.  They were layered togeteher and adhered over the splatter stamping.  The sentiment from the My Favorite Things set Sweet Roses was stamped in black.  I finished things off with a yellow button/twine embellishment. 

Thanks for stopping by... please check out the projects created by my fellow teamies Tara, Hayley, Sam, Katie, Brenda and January guest designer, Lesley.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Smoky Slate; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Ink:  SU! & Memento; Dies:  Taylored Expressions; Button:  PTI; Twine:  Close to My Heart
