A Challenge from Keesh!!!

I'm Back!!! WOW this must be some kind of record... well for me anyway!!!

One of my goals for the New Year is to sit down and participate in more Challenges and I think I'm off to a pretty good start.. Two challenges in a week.. YAY.

So.. Keesh is in charge of setting challenges for the online Demo Group I'm lucky to be a part of and here is her challenge for this week:-

This week she set a 'Sketch' Challenge and here is the card I came up with:- (I wonder if you can guess what colours I chose!!! hahaha)

I've used Regal Rose as the base with a layer of Certainly Celery DSP, the I've added some Rose Red DSP which I've 'Scalloped' (and let me say I CAN'T WAIT FOR MY SCALLOP EDGE PUNCH TO ARRIVE!!) - oops sorry for shouting!!!.. and then added a layer of Regal Rose which I've dry embossed with my Crop-a-dile (I'm a little obsessed with this technique at the moment.) and to that I've tied a bow in Certainly Celery Wide Grosgrain. My image is layered onto a piece of Rose Red and Whisper White card stock and the flower is from my Bodacious Bouquet set (which I just love) and that is stamped in Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose, the leaves are of course Certainly Celery. The sentiment is from my So Many Sayings (Hostess Set) and stamped in Certainly Celery onto Whisper White. The side panel and the flowers section have both been propped up on some dimensionals.

Hope you like.


Here's what I've used:-

Stamps:- Bodacious Bouquet, So Many Sayings (Level 1 Hostess)
Card:- Rose Red, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Certainly Celery DSP and Rose Red DSP
Ink:- Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink
Accessories:- Certainly Celery Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Crop-a-dile, Dimensionals, Silver Brad, Pink RhineStone.

Lovely card. I love the bodacious bouquet. I too have to invest in a scallop punch. Take care.
