Color Cue

It is no secret that I love Wplus9 stamps.  There really isn't anything I don't like about the company.  What I love even more is that they just launched their own line of cutting dies.  I won the first die and I am in need of getting the new one with the coordinating stamp set.
Wplus9 does a Color Cue Challenge.  I have yet to figure out the frequency, I am thinking probably about one a month but I could be wrong.  This is the current color challenge.

 To find out all the info go here.

This is the card I came up with.  All but the paper and ink are Wplus9, those are PTI.  I started with a dark chocolate cardbase and took some Hawaiian Shores cardstock, used pure poppy ink to stamp the background with the Damask Frames stamp set.
The flower/branch image was stamped first with versamark on kraft but I didn't like how little it showed so I restamped it with Tim Holtz distress ink.  That image is from the Woodgrain Silhouettes stamp set.
The sentiment was cut from kraft ink with the first die that Wplus9 released (All Occasions Label).  I stamped it with the coordinating stamp in pure poppy and the sentiment is from the same set stamped in fresh snow (Brothers & Sisters).
For a little more flare I took some "pure poppy" and "Hawaiian shores" DMC floss with some twine and tied it around the Hawaiian shores mat then tied a brown button and called it good. 
That is about it for this one.  Today is my son's Friday.  Apparently here in South Dakota they think a 4 day weekend over Easter is spring break.  We do have a fun activity to go to Friday afternoon for the hubby's work so that should be fun.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
