HIMCR #19 - Blushing Peach Craze

Happy Saturday!! 

I hope you are having a great weekend!  The challenge this week, the 1st week of the month, is a color challenge:  Blushing Peach Craze!  I have always loved the fun names that they come up with over on Splitcoast Stampers so I decided to give it a try. The colors this time are:  Cajun Craze, Peach Parfait, and Blushing Bride.  These are Stampin Up colors but remember you can use an colors that are similar.
I just love the way the colors came together for me.  I hope you like them too.  If you want an extra challenge, not a requirement, just for fun: make it a 'Thank You' project.  You have until Friday, November 11th (11-11-11!!) to link up your creation to get entered into the monthly drawing.  I don't have November's giveaway up yet!

Here's what I came up with:

The flowers were cut at various sizes from Art Philosophy cartridge.

Card Base: SU Cajun Craze 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   Peach Parfait 4" X 5 1/4", DP ?? 3 3/4" X 5
Other Cardstock / Paper:   Blushing Bride, Blushing Bride DP,
Ink:  Peach Parfait (sponging), PTI True Black
Stamps:   PTI  Floral Frenzy
Accessories:  Cricut  & Art Philosophy cartridge, LTPINK ribbon from Wal-Mart,  button

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month! (I had to change this because I realized that it was not always possible to post the winner on the first Friday of the month!)
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!

Hiding in My Craft Room!
