My Challenge Card
Good Morning Ladies,
I thought we would go back to having a nice easy to follow Sketch for the challenge this week. I quite liked the look of this one, Michele thought it would be good for Christmas cards too.
You can choose whatever theme you like, I've gone for a 'just for you ' card this time as it can be sent for many reasons from 'thanks' to 'thinking of you'!
For my card I used Stampin'Up! 'Eastern Palace' suite and 'So Saffron' card and ink.
I created the 'flower' with the 'Eastern Medallion' Thinlits' which I stamped with 'So Saffron' ink. The border at the bottom was created with a piece of 'So Saffron' card to which I added two pieces of 'Whisper White' card that I has punched the new Stampin'Up Ribbon Border Punch, I finished it this a piece of white ribbon and a bow. I added a 'Just For You' sentiment with a stamp from. 'Teeny Tiny Sentiments'.
The centre of the flower is finished with a Stampin Up Faceted Gem stone.
I am going to make a little confession here, up until this last month I had refused to buy Stampin'Up! 'Whisper White' card, I kept saying that I had loads of my own white card and paper why would I need to buy any more!
That was until the Craft Weekend we went on where I got to use 'Whisper White' in each of the projects we did, OMG what an epiphany !! It is the smoothest, silkiest feeling stamping card I have ever stroked! and believe me I have stroked a lot over the years, it stamps like a dream, so now I am truly converted!
I look forward to seeing all of your Challenge cards trickling in over the week.
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
