I was able to play along with not one, not two, but three challenges with my card today. I’m entering my card into the following fab challenges – Global Design Project, Addicted to CAS and The Card Concept. Take a look at their inspiration pics:
As you probably know, sketch challenges are my favourites. Half of the card is already done by following a sketch! The sketch at Global Design Project is pretty awesome and made putting together my card so easy. Are you like me and save sketches? When I get the chance, I print them and keep them in a file for when I need inspiration.
The code word at Addicted to CAS is “Leaves” and the gorgeous inspiration pic at The Card Concept has a beautiful cake layered with leaves. I think the style of this card qualifies at The Card Concept as Classy & Elegant? I combined these challenges and made a neutral wedding card.
The designer series paper I’ve used in the background is from a Stampin’ Up retired pack called Urban Underground Speciality Designer Series Paper. This tiny spotted paper was my favourite from this pack.
The leaves are cut with Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. To create my coloured leaves, I watercoloured some Thick Whisper White cardstock with Tip Top Taupe (sadly retired), Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry Inks.
The sentiment I’ve used is from Beautiful Bouquet. I stamped this sentiment in the flourish stamp from Label Me Pretty and punched it out with my Pretty Label Punch. I then added a strip of Burlap Ribbon and Copper Ribbon. Because I’m a lover of anything bling, especially on a nuptials card, I added a copper sequin.
Thanks for stopping by.
