It feels good to be back creating cards. I am a little rusty though.


I made this card for yesterday’s Color Challenge on SCS. The colors this week were Taken with Teal, Real Red and Certainly Celery.,

I got the layout from the wonderful Julee Tilman’s and her Mojo Monday layout.

The card base is a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock.

The next layer is a 5″ square of Floral Chic patterned paper by Fancy Pants. I punched each corner with the ticket corner punch.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Thanks with Style by Kitchen Sinks Stamps. I inked it with Real Magic VersaMagic ink and stamped it on a 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock.

Again I used the Ticket Corner Punch on each corner and paper pierced the edges.

I layered two red flowers from the Prima Quick Pick Hydrangia Strawberry pack and added a Antique Brass Build A Brad.

Last I added sheer polka dot ribbon by May Arts.
