Pinspired #16, MCS #110, and Rockwell Nectarine

Jackie Rockwell is sponsoring a challenge at her blog to make cards using each of the 10 Pantone colors of Spring 2013.  The winner will win a free custom blog header design.  Who wouldn't want that?  I've seen a few that Jackie has designed and they are fabulous.  The card I"m posting today is for the Nectarine challenge.

Another stamp set I bought with my PTI gift certificate was the one called Meadow Greens.  I love Queen Anne's lace and these airy blossoms look great stamped in white on almost any color.  In this case I stamped them on nectarine.  I thought it would make a good sympathy card so I used a sentiment from My Pink Stamper.  I'm also entering this in My Craft Spot's challenge - Get Well or Sympathy card.

I also have a card for a new-for-me challenge - the one inspired by pictures on Pinterest and of course it's called Pinspired. 

The inspiration:

My card:

I knew I didn't have stamps that could be used for a background so I went with designer paper from Crate Paper that had some of the same colors.  For the sentiment, I stamped a strip of vellum with a stamp by Hero Arts and embossed it with gold powder.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Please leave a comment and I'll be sure to return the favor.

Have a glorious day!
