This card was created for a Color Challenge on SCS. The colors were Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, Garden green with a dash of Soft Sky. I combined this challenge with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge of that week.

The image is from Flourishes Thank You stamp set. It was stamped on Watercolor Paper with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Up! Markers (Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal, Mellow Moss, Garden Green) and Aqua Painter. It was cut out with Circle Nestabilities and layered on a Label 1 Nestabilities die cut out of Close to Cocoa cardstock.  Champagne Kaisercraft Pearls were added ot the top right and lower left corner of that die cut.


The card base is a 5″ x 10″ piece of Barely Banana cardstock folded in half. A 1 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Thrift Store October Afternoon paper was layered over a small strip of Very Vanilla cardstock that had been cut and embossed with Eyelet Borderabilities. That strip was layered on a 4 1/2″ square of Thrift Store paper. The square was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger square of Close to Cocoa Cardstock. 1/2″ wide silk Ribbon was tied around the layers on the top, two strips of lace were attached to the bottom part. Hardware from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit (Stampin’ Up!) was added to the lace. The sentiment is from the background stamp of the Thank you set.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles

  16. What sort of sewing machine do you use?/ A small craft style or a regular machine?? I do not have room for a regular sized mach9ine and was hoping for a craft sized machine review. I have not read any positive reviews of them on any site. Thx. D 🙂
