Here’s what I came up with…I took the sketch very literally!  lol!


CCMC419 Flourishing Phrases



Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Crushed Curry cardstock, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Several different shapes of Festive Birthday Designer Paper were cut for the background layers.
  • The flower from Flourishing Phrases was stamped once with Crushed Curry Ink and once with Melon Mambo Ink on Whisper White cardstock then hand-cut out.  The leaves were stamped with Cucumber Crush Ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out.
  • The flower was assembled together with Stampin ‘Dimensionals and added to the front.
  • A Rhinestone Jewels sits in the center for a little sparkle and a few more were scattered in the background!
  • The greeting Hello from the stamp set was stamped with Tempting Turquoise Ink.


OK…check out the rest of the Challenge Team and see what they did with the sketch this week over on Create with Connie and Mary…and don’t forget to sign up for our newest session (and did I mention the extra Star of Light Christmas Card set we did as a thank you to our subscribers?)  Get the details over on Create with Connie and Mary!
