This month Stamps R Us hosted their first blog group challenge. To gets things started I challenged the group to create a card using Mercy Kerin's Sketch Challenge #50. Here is the card I made using the sketch. The card reminds me of spring and considering we are expecting our first big snow storm of the season here today it makes me feel as though I should be creating winter cards instead!
The card base is a half sheet of Certainly Celery cardstock folded in half. Next I cut a strip of Blush Blossom cardstock and punched it using the Martha Stewart Floral Lace border punch. Over the strip I placed a piece of Petal Patch Designer Series Paper layered on a slightly larger piece of Whisper White cardstock. The next layer is also Petal Patch DSP layered on Whisper White cardstock. Before attaching it though I wrapped Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon around it and tied a knot in front.
The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White cardstock using the Flower Fluffles stamp and colored in using Stampin Write Markers. Using my Creative Memories Circle Cutting System I cut out the image and a slightly larger piece of Blush Blossom cardstock. To finish off the card I attached two large Chocolate Kaiser Pearls in the upper right corner and several small ones along the lace border.
Hope you enjoyed today's card creation!
