A Trend and Colour Challenge.

I have made a card for 2 challenges
They are for the
For the Jugs Challenge we are to use Woodgrain.
I recently bought the Hexagon die from Stampin' Up
and have been itching to try it out.
I saw a card recently that had embossing on it
so I used Tim Holtz wood grain textile embossing folder
but unfortunately it isn't as noticeable as I liked so inked it
so it stood out a little better.
For the second challenge at the Paper Players
 it is a Colour Challenge
I got out my favourite Stampin' Up stamp set
Vintage Vogue as I knew it would be perfect
 to attach to the popped cut out die.
I started off with white card stock and followed up by randomly
stamping the flowers and leaves from this set in the colours
to match the above.
I used Rich Razzleberry from SU
and various coloured Memento and Tim Holtz distress inks
on the background.
I fussy cut the flowers popped them after distressing them
 to give them depth.
Added some Kaisercraft pearls to the centres
and a sentiment from GinaK Designs
cut from Spellbinders Circles.
So that is it for me for now.
Thank you for stopping by and till next time
