Stamping 411

It is time for another awesome sketch from Selene.  This week's was really a challenge.  I'm anxious to see what the other Design Operators did with it this week!  Check them out over on Stamping 411!



The base card is from the new In Color, Pear Pizzazz.  I added the scrap of Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper that was sitting on my desk.  I also had the embossed Top Note on my desk, left over from another project.  I had used the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder on Whisper White, then cut it with the Top Note die.  I used the Eyelet Border Punch and Daffodil Delight Textured Cardstock to make the border across the top of the Designer Paper, then place a narrow piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock across the seam to hide it.  I ran some of the 1/8" Daffodil Delight Taffeta across the Chocolate Chip and secured it in the back.




The flower is from Blossom Party die, a Stampin' Up! original die that I just bought.  The flower is a fun size and I thought went perfectly with the sketch!  I added a Neutrals Flower Brad in the center of it and added a Word Window tag of Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped Just For You in Chocolate Chip from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Finally, I thought the White Top Note needed a little color, so I used the new circle Itty Bitty Punch and Daffodil Delight to make two circles for the corner.


After I finished this card, I had a thought on using this sketch for one of my Convention swap cards!  I'll let you see it after I work on it!  Tomorrow is a busy day with my second Customer Appreciation Party!


Don't forget to check out Stamping 411 and play along with this week's sketch challenge!
