I am a bit behind on this weeks challenges. Here is my sample for today’s sketch challenge with the colors of Tuesday’s challenge on SCS.


I thought this layout would showcase Cammie’s new set very well.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Purely Pomegranate cardstock folded in half. I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs in Purely Pomegranate on it and sponged the edges with Purely Pomegranate, then with Going Grey.

The Going Gray cardstock layer measures 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and has a dotted border on it made with a white gel pen. It is followed by a 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Basic Black cardstock by a 3″ x 4″ piece of BasicGrey paper. I tied Artichoke stitched ribbon from May Arts around both the black cardstock and the patterned paper and added a double photo corner on the top right that were topped with three Artichoke brads.

I inked up the stamp with Always Artichoke and Purely Pomegranate ink and stamped it on a 1 1/2″ x 2″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock. That was layered on a rectangle Nextabilities die cut and paper pierced. I added black brads in the center of each flower.

  17. Great card. I like the sketch challenge for the weekend too. I’m loving all these smaller chunks on cards because I’ve promised myself that I MUST use only what I have in my scrap bin when doing challenge cards. I’m trying to not even cut for bases. At least until I can put more scraps in without difficulty. Have a good weekend. Joan
