Hello stampers! Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary color challenge 250 & The Paper Players sketch challenge 143.
There are several sketch challenges that I wanted to participate in this week and this was one of them. Most of them have banners in the sketch....I guess you could say it's a banner week! LOL! Anyway, here is one of many I hope to get done, so stay tuned! Also, as luck would have it, the colors at CCMC this week happened to be a few I had laying out on my desk already. Mostly because they are a couple of the colors from the new Sent With Love bundle. I had pulled out these two designer papers because I thought they coordinated well together. I also happened to have a gray base card already cut and folded waiting to be used. Kismet! Love that! When I looked at the sketch, I decided I wanted to use flowers for the circle shapes. I punched out individual petals from the Blossom Petals punch, kinda folded or molded them around a pen to add some dimension and attatched them to a big glue dot on a punch circle. The littler flower is from the Island Floral die. I snipped a line inbetween each petal and formed them the same way as the bigger flower petals. I wanted to stick with all ribbon for the banners, but the only ribbon in Calypso Coral I own is the 1/4" sheer ribbon from the Sell-a-bration catalog last year. I just wouldn't work here, so I subbed in a embossed piece of cardstock. A button and brad to finish of the flower centers and the leaf die complete my card.
Here's a list of all my supplies....
Paper: Gray, Calypso Coral, Sent With Love DP
Accessories: Little Leaves & Island Floral Die, Gray satin & Sycamore Street ribbon, Sycamore Street button, Everyday Enchantment brad, Circle punches, Fancy Fan EF, Blossom Petals punch
