Color Throwdown #46 & SCS Sketch #232



Hello All!! Sorry I'm late posting yesterday's challenges but yesterday was a challenge in more than one way!! DH has been having some "stomach issues" ever since he came home from Cleveland Clinic the end of April ... well, to make a long story short ... I had to admit him to the hospital yesterday and they are running tests to see exactly what is going on. He was already feeling somewhat better when I left him last evening! I will keep you posted on this issue and ask that you say a little prayer for him! Thanks!




Now, on to my card for the Color Throwdown Challenge. My friend, Tammy Hershberger - STAMP HAPPY -( waving HI to Tammy) was our hostess and the colors she chose lent themselves perfectly for a baby card (in my opinion that is!!). I (at my age) don't have much call for baby cards, but I've had this adorable image by Serendipity Stamps for awhile now and just knew it was the image I wanted to use for my card. I stamped my image twice using Versafine Black ink ... once on white cardstock and then again on this SU Delicate Dots designer paper. Using my trusty swivel craft knife, I cut out the designer paper image and pieced it onto the white cardstock image. I purposely cut out the bonnet pieces to make it appear that the bonnet was white with the matching green accent band. (see closeup view) The border was created using the Stampin' Up Eyelet border punch with Certainly Celery cs and SU Delicate Dots designer paper. My coordinating designer papers are also from the SU Delicate Dots pack. I've used Certainly Celery ribbon, a Target polka dot brad, Hero Arts gems & Prima flowers for my embellishments. The sentiment is from an older SU set called "Riveting". Nestabilities was used for the circle matting on my sentiment.




That's about it for the details on my Color Throwdown card for this week. Hope you like it and can find a little inspiration from my work.

I'd also like to share with you my card for the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge. This was such a fun sketch and I had just purchased this really cool BoBunny 12x12 paper and could not wait to use it. This sketch came at the perfect time!!!
As stated, the paper is from 2 different sheets of BoBunny designer paper. One sheet is called Aquamarine Dots and the other is Alissa So Cute. I've used the SU Morning Soft image for my focus and I have used both the front and back side of the Aquamarine Dots dp to paper piece the flowers. Each panel has been matted using Basic Black cardstock ... my sentiment is from Inkadinkado and the gorgeous black pearls are Martha Stewart!!
I so hope you enjoy this creation also and find inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful, creative day!!
