I did find another sketch challenge to play along over on Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSC67. It looked like fun and I thought immediately of the new Island Floral Bigz Die that could be used for the flower focal element.
My card ties in with the Tropical Party theme we have going on over on Create with Connie and Mary this week! Subscribers are getting a chance to see some fun projects made with Stampin' Up!'s Tropical Party stamps, Island Floral Bigz Die and Island Oasis Designer paper.
I started with a base card of Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I added a layer of So Saffron that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder. I made my "designer paper" in the background by stamping the large flower in Tropical Party randomly on Whisper White cardstock in the colors of Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and So Saffron. I layered that piece on Pumpkin Pie. I did add some real designer paper with the Polka Dot Print in Island Oasis Designer Paper, then added a strip of So Saffron on top, with the Happy Birthday greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I also wrapped some Pumpkin Pie ribbon around and tied with a knot.
The flower I ran Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie cardstock thru the Big Shot with the Island Floral Bigz Die, then ran it thru again in the Square Lattice Impressions Folder. I punched Boho Blossom from So Saffron for the center and added a Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad in the center. This is popped up with dimensionals on the front. I like it! It is nice and bright!
