Elements of Style



Wow, I combined two challenges today to create my card…the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #SSSC66 and Curtain Call Act #27 color combination of Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery and Whisper White!  I LOVE that color combination and it was a FUN sketch!

Since I was using Pink Pirouette, I knew I wanted a soft look to my Elements of Style rose image and show that it doesn't have to be vintage!  I stamped the image in Versamark on Whisper White and used my sponge daubers and Stampin' Pastels to color in the roses and leaves!  I cut it out with my Circle Scissors to a 3 1/2" size and then cut a circle mat from Melon Mambo at 3 5/8" size.  The base card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 Pink Pirouette square card (I am SO glad that color will be coming back!) and layered with Certainly Celery cardstock.  I stamped the vine image from Elements of Style with Certainly Celery Classic Ink in the corners on the right side.  I used my Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack to make the designs in the corners of the left side.  I added strips of designer paper in the background from Sweet Pea Designer Paper and Razzleberry Lemonade.  FInally, I added a bow made from the Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon and placed it on the base of the stamped rose image.  That stamp set is so pretty, and what a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon stamping!

Hi Connie!  Boy, I was excited when I saw your name on Mr. Linky on Stacey's site ….what a treat for you to join us!  You have been an inspiration to me for such a long time!  As always, a super cute card!
