A Year of Cupcake Challenges!

Here's another card for another one of Taylor's Cupcake Challenges. This one is for Taylor's Sketch Challenge TECC52TV. I also used a few of the challenges over at SCS, since I didn't have a chance to participate in them at all this week. I used the Color Challenge CC202 to use Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, and Bravo Burgandy. Not 3 colors I would choose on my own, but I made it work. I did add black and vanilla as neutrals. Because I used black as my main background, this card also fits the Limited Supply Challenge LSC204. Here's my card:

CARDSTOCK: Bravo Burgandy, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
STAMPS: A Rose Is A Rose (sentiment is a rub-on)
ACCESSORIES: SU! Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, SU! Black Brads, SU! Scallop Edge Pinch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
When I stamped the Bravo Burgandy onto the Regal Rose flower base, I first stamped off, so I would get a lighter color. I do not have Bravo Burgandy Classic Ink, so I had to use my Craft Spot. It was a little too dark. Stamping off helped to lighten it a little. I didn't think I would like these colors together, but they're kind of growing on me!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
