Color Challenge! Use only Pacific Point, Gray Granite, and Soft Seafoam

The head of my team runs color challenges for us. This one was to use only Pacific Point, Gray Granite, and Soft Seafoam (although you can also use Whisper White cardstock and Tuxedo Black ink). Here is my entry in the challenge. :) I love it - hope you do too.

Ingredients: Whisper White, Pacific Point, and Soft Seafoam cardstocks; Gray Granite ink; Poinsettia dies; Ornate Borders dies; Poinsettia Petals stamp set; liquid glue; Stampin' dimensionals; glue dots; sponge dauber; champagne rhinestones; Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine; Trimmer; bone folder.

Recipe: Cut a piece of Whisper White in half horizontally, score horizontally, and fold, to create a card base of 5.5x4.25". Using the largest of the Ornate Borders dies, cut a piece from Pacific Point. Using liquid glue, adhere the Pacific Blue piece on the Whisper White card base. Using the Poinsettia dies, cut one of each of the three poinsettia petals, nestling the embossing die inside the cutting die. Using a sponge dauber, color the petals with Gray Granite ink, concentrating on the edges and the tops of the petals and leaving the bottom half of each petal white. Curl each of the petals on all three poinsettias. Layer from largest to smallest, putting each layer askew from the one below, and attach with glue dots (using at least two glue dots for each layer). Place a champagne rhinestone in the middle of the petal stack. Using at least three Stampin' dimensionals, adhere to the middle of the Pacific Point piece. Stamp Happy Holidays on a piece of 1.25x1.5" Whisper White cardstock. Tuck partly under the flower and adhere with liquid glue. Add a champagne rhinestone in the top corner. Using the Poinsettia dies, cut out the two small flowers in Whisper White. Curl the petals up with your bone folder. Adhere to the bottom left corner with glue dots and place a champagne rhinestone on each flower. Using the Poinsettia dies, cut out the sprigs in Soft Seafoam. Using liquid glue, tuck the sprigs under the flower and adhere.

Hope you try this! If you do please tag me so I can see your creation.
