Triple Treat Flower

Another A' la Carte stamp, Triple Treat Flower, was the focal point for my card.  It is nice when one single stamp gives you just what you are looking for.

Now, for my colors - I went to my Color Coach for the combination - and at first was skeptical of the pairing but when I put it all together I liked it.  The color pattern is Wisteria Wonder for the card base followed by a layer of Elegant Eggplant, and then embossed layers of Lucky Limeade.  These aren't colors I would choose myself, but it is nice to try something different.

The first Lucky Limeade layer was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder, and then a small layer was embossed with the Houndstooth embossing folder.  I stamped my flower in Wisteria Wonder ink and then punched it out with the Fancy Flower Punch.  An In Color Designer Brad was placed in the center before I put it onto my layer of Whisper White which was stamped with leaves from the Awash With Flowers set.  A small piece of "Wisteria Wonder 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon was added for extra embellishment.
