After another super busy week, I'm back again for my Saturday Our Creative Corner post.  Lori Rider is our hostess again this week and this week she has a color challenge for us - but it's a color challenge with a twist - you have to use three punches and one of them has to be a border punch!

I kind of panicked when I saw the colors, but then I realized I had the Springtime Vintage paper pack from SU with those colors in it - whew!  I really love Soft Suede so I featured it quite prominently.  The doily lace is the white border lace doily that I sell in my Etsy shop.  I sprayed it with the homemade glimmer mist I use a lot (vintage photo reinker, water and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls).  I really love the way it looks with its new vintage paper look!  I did sponge the edges a bit with Vintage Photo ink too.

The three punches I used are all SU punches - two for the soft suede panel - the border punch and the corner punch.  The third punch is a large 5-petel flower that I punched newsprint with and placed it underneath my crinoline flower.  The rich razzleberry can be found in the two outer rosebuds and the regal rose is in the paper and the middle rosebud.  I colored white rosebuds with the reinkers, mixed with a few drops of water to mute the intensity.  That fabulous sentiment came from my favorite sentiment maker, Anne Vento.  Anne hosts the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog and you can pick up free digital sentiments every Sunday.  I sprayed the sentiment panel with a bit of my glimmer mist too.

You can find these items in my Etsy shop:

I hope you will stop by the Our Creative Corner challenge blog and see the beautiful creations by the other designers, and maybe play along with us this week too!

Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you have a great weekend@!
