I loved the colors so much from the Play Date Cafe Challenge (see inspiration picture below in my previous post) that I wanted to try a 2nd idea. I used the technique that Heather pointed us to with some 6-petal flower templates in 3 sizes to make my flower and the sketch from this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge. To me the sketch looks exactly like an Amish quilt pattern called Center Diamond, and these colors would be very Amish except for that bright orange! So last night after I had made the first card I used the mauve paper to make a flower and let it dry overnight. Then this morning it was easy to put this card together. Again, I clear embossed some patterns on each square panel before assembling, just to give it more richness. I thought this gold filigree button was the perfect center for my flower, and to me, it looks like the last rose of the season. I used the exact same papers (except the plaid) from my previous card, but they look so different! I didn't add a sentiment because I just didn't want to mess up the symmetry of this design.
Supplies: beige, burgundy/brick, orange, mauve cardstocks, Hero Arts S5264 Antique Flower Background, S5101 Raindrop Background, CG119 Flourish Background, gold filigree button
