I did a second card using the Create with Connie and Julie Sketch Challenge for this week that I thought I'd share it with you, too. It was the original one I made, but after seeing several of the designers using the same stamp set, Happy Moments, I decided to do something else at the last minute…you can see that in my last post.
For this one I used a base of Melon Mambo cardstock, then layered Bermuda Bay cardstock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. I used the Welcome Neighbor Designer Paper from Sale-A-Bration and cut it into three 1/2 inch strips and adhered them vertically, then wrapped two strips of Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon horizontally around to the back to secure.
For the focal piece, I stamped the Floral Bouquet from Happy Moments in Basic Brown Ink on Whisper White, then colored with Watercolor Crayons and my AquaPainter (I haven't used them in AGES!) I added some Crystal Effects to each of the blossoms to make them shine. I punched with the 1 3/8 circle punch, then adhered it to a Scallop Circle punched from Melon Mambo. On each of the scallops, I placed a tiny rhinestone sticker from Eggcellent Egg Kit! I love how it sparkles! Finally, I stamped thank you from Happy Moments in Basic Brown and punched with the 3/4 circle punch, the the 1" punched circle from Crushed Curry! Fun card!
We are getting SLAMMED once again with snow, expecting 8-10 inches! What is it this year? I'm glad my card puts me in mind of SPRING!
