My card today works for three different challenges. The Midnight Madness Sketch challenge#25, the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge#39 to use border punches, and the Splitcoaststampers color challenge CC242 to use Black, Kraft, and Melon Mambo. I actually surprised myself that I squeezed all 3 challenges into one card........and on the same day the challenges were posted! Maybe this will be a new trend for me??
I started with Kraft and stamped it using the IttyBitty Backgrounds in cool grey. The image panel was first stamped with the Basketweave from Flourishes in Versacolor Sand Beige. I stamped the tree from Flourishes Forest of Trees in Versafine Onyx Black and pierced the edges, doing faux stitching with white and black gel pens. I used a MS arch lattice border punch on the Melon Mambo horizontal panel beneath the striped ribbon. The scallops and circles were cut with SU! punches and stamped with cool grey using a leaf image from the Autumn stamp set by the Paper Co. I dotted the scallops with the white gel pen. I used an antique brass HPH ribbon slide - dipping it in Versamark, then black ep and heating it to turn it black. Both ribbons are by SU! and the black pearls are by Kaiser.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all have a fantastic day!
