One of the VSN challenges was a color Challenge. We were to use Kraft, Cameo Coral and So Saffron together. At first I couldn’t see it working, but I was glad I tried. I really like how the card came out. I stamped an image from There She Goes Clear Stamps “What’s Up, Buttercup” in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah White cardstock. It was cut with Circle Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers(B000, G82, G94, Y21, Y23, YR65, YR68). Stardust Stickles was added into the center of each flower.


The layout of the card was completely taken from the Go to Sketches from Papercraft Magazines. The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The lower right corner was rounded with a retired Stampin’ Up! Corner Rounder.

The patterned paper is from the Earth Love Cosmo Cricket paper pack and measures 3″ x 4 1/4″. It was sanded and stitched on a slightly wider piece of white cardstock. The right edge of the white paper had been cut with Kaleidoscope Borderabilities. Natural Linen Ruffle was taped from under the image to the inside of the card. Buttons were stitched over the ruffle.
