I sat down this afternoon to complete a card for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 139 Challenge. The design team created a lot of awesome samples to spur the imagination. The challenge sketch is below:


I wanted to have a Mother’s Day card to share with my group of stampers; so, to work I did go. I really, really, really, (did I say really???) love the Birthday Bash DSP and its color combinations. I just can’t get enough of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive.. It just reminds me of summer. The sample sketch looks like a 6″ x 6″ card, but I whittled mine down to a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card. I wanted a fresh, clutter free card; therefore, I only stamped one large flower in Calypso Coral and accented the sentiment with a smaller flower in the same color. I accented the card with butterflies and diamond rhinestones tinted with a Blendabilities marker (Wild Wisteria – darkest color). I made a scallop oval mat for the sentiment by punching two oval scallops, cutting them in half (one vertical; the other horizontal). I then placed them behind the oval with the sentiment to create a border. If there was overlapping that showed, which it did, I trimmed off that portion of the scallop.

I think the card turned out just like I envisioned. I didn’t have a “Hot Mess” in this week’s challenge like I did in a challenge I entered last week. LOL
