sketch challenge #104 from the Stars and Stamps blog....
And here is my card. I used the SU! Cute by the Inch stamp set for the images, and added black and red card stock. I embossed the background with a damask ef by Sizzix and added a simple ribbon and bow made with the Bow-easy.
And this is the sketch for this weeks Sweet Stop Challenge #141.
I used some of my very-well-loved-and-hoarded retired SU! Afternoon Tea dsp for this one. I used a SNSS scalloped border die for the Wasabi panel at the bottom and before you say "oh no she didn't,"........ Yes I did! LOL I cut 3 panels from the Wasabi, Soft Sky, and Groovy Guava and swapped all those tiny flowers and dots into the holes for some added interest. I also used 4 of the flowers for the cross-stitch effect on the top panel. Sometimes I find tedious work like that relaxing, and today was one of those days. I used a SU! set called Echoes of Kindness for the image and colored it with Copics. I added some Soft Sky ribbon and a tiny tag with the word "Mother" which was computer generated. The center panel was embossed with a Sizzix diamonds folder, and the image panel was cut with a Spellbinders labels eighteen die. This will be going into my next OWH box for Mother's day, or simply for a card to send home to mother.
I think that's going to do it for me today. I have a friend stopping by in about a half-hour, so it's time to leave the craft room :)
Make it a great day!!
