It's All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge

Good Morning! This morning's challenge is a color challenge. These are always fun, but since I don't have any SU paper, my first challenge is always trying to find the right papers to use :) I think my teal is a little darker than Baja Breeze this time, but I tried :)

This was a fun card to make and I love kraft paper. I used the kraft paper as my card base and embossed it with cuttlebug paisley embossing folder. Then I sponged some of my teal ink onto the embossing, you can't see it as well in the picture because it's subtle, but it's there. I used AmyR Stamps "Amy's Boutique" set and the "Boutique Sentiments" as my stamps. I paper pieced the dress with paper I got from the DCWV Fall Stack (I know so many of you don't use these, but I have to say last year's Christmas one and this year's fall one have been so much fun to use. ) There are still a few papers in there that I will probably never use, but not many :)
Back to the card, I pieced her belly band (hee hee) with my baja breeze color.
The red is Bazzill Basics and I cut it with my rectangle nesties and pierced holes in the scallops, I also cut the rectangle around the dress with my plain rectangle nesties and then embossed the frame around it. This piece got sponged with the teal color as well. I put all the pieces on the card, added the prima flower and the dew drops, tied the ribbon and it's finished :)

You can check out the gallery at All That Scraps to see more projects for this challenge.
