Kristina's Color Challenge

I know, can you believe it, I posted two days in a row! And this is my second post today!
Kristina's color challenge today was So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, and Close to Cocoa. I made two cards, but I like the top one better.
I used my nestabilities to cut my two bigger circles, my 1" punch for the saffron circle, and my star punches. I stamped the star in celery on scrap paper, then used my SMALL star punch to punch out the middle, then used my large star punch to punch the whole star out of the scrap. The star is popped up with dimensionals, and I added a button, a sentiment, and the ribbon.


I love the retired set Fresh Fruit! I inked up the pineapple base with saffron ink, then rolled the edges in cocoa ink. I did the same thing with the stem, except with celery and cocoa inks. I mounted it on a piece of cocoa paper and tied a chocolate ribbon around the edge. I inked up my Canvas background in bashful blue ink, and rubbed the edges in cocoa ink to make it look a little distressed. I mounted the pineapple on the base with dimensionals, stamped the sentiment in cocoa craft ink, and added some piercing (that you can't really see).
