To the left you can see the sketch challenge that Stamping 411 posted for the week. I used the set called “Happy Moments” which you can get for FREE from your demonstrator when you place a $50 Stampin’Up product order. I also used Itty Bitty Backgrounds around my flower image . . . another Sale-a-bration Reward Item available for FREE with a qualifying order! Isn’t this a great time of year?

One thing that you might be noticing about this card is the darling flower embellishment. It’s just a Scallop Circle punch with the scallops snipped in, stamped with Itty Bitty Backgrounds, distressed a bit and layered with designer series paper and a Jumbo 5/8″ Brad.

And this card is for the Stamping 411 Color Challenge using the colors of So Saffron, Brocade Blue and Certainly Celery. The chipboard “d” is from a letter pack called On Board Loads of Letters. First I covered the letter in Whisper White Craft in, then I poured White Embossing Powder over it and heat set it for a nice shiny look.

The panel of Brocade Blue is swirled with Whisper White Craft ink. I used the embosslit die called Beautiful Wings to make some butterfly accents for both the outside and the inside of my card.
