Stacked Blended Bloom ~ CCMC356

Hello!  It's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  This week we have a neat color combo.....

While I think purple is a perfectly wonderful color, I always seem to have trouble crafting with it.  It's just not the first color I usually reach for.  That's why these challenges are good for me....they force me to step out of my comfort zone.  

I stamped a couple {Blended Blooms} on Soft Sky card stock and cut them full flower and then the more inner part of the other.  Then I stamped another Smokey Slate and cut out the center, then yet again I stamped another on Blackberry Bliss and punched out the very center.  I sprayed some Smooch Spritz onto a plastic lid, like a paint palette, and dipped my paint brush in it and painted some shimmer on the flower.  

Also showcased on this card is the new Neutrals paper stack.  I really love the new patterns there are this year....lots of fun ones, like this script.  
A little Smokey Slate ribbon and "enjoy" from the Treat Bag die set finish my card off.  

Be sure to pop by the other gals' blogs....there's tons of great inspiration!

Thanks for taking a peek!
