S&S Sketch Challenge #17


I made this card for the OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #17 found here. I pulled out my PTI Plum Pudding cardstock and some PTI guidelines DSP for this one. I embossed the background panel with the Cuttlebug Leafy Branch embossing folder and chalked it lightly with a q-tip and some pale pink chalk. The sentiment panel was done with a Just-Rite stamp and some Plum Pudding ink, and layered with SU! Pale Plum and PTI Plum Pudding. I dotted the scallops with a pink souffle pen for interest. The circle and scallop were all done with SU! punches. The ribbon is also Plum Pudding from PTI.
It's nice to see you again, and I hope you're enjoying your Sunday!
