Whimsical Wednesday Challenges #11

Ok, I went out on a limb here and did something very bold.  I decided to used red, yellow and black as my only three colors.  I also made it different by making it into an easle care.  I both yellow and red layers, I ran them thru with the lattic embossing folder by SU!.  Not sure if you can see them in the photo, but I added little gold pearls to each center point of the scalloped border punch on the outside of card.  The black strip inside the card is also embossed.  My favorite item is the red flower on the front made my punching out two scalloped circles and folding them at each point and then putting them together to form the pin wheel.  This card is for http://whimsicalwednesdays.blogspot.com/.  Head on over and check it out, its such a great weekly challenge blog!

This is just beautiful. I love that you made an easel card and you also took a chance and only used three colors. I love the flower too, what a very different way to make one. Just love everything about it. You get two entries on this one. Did you try and upload this to the blog twice? Once again you did an amazing job with the challenge.
