This card is made using the challenge over at the 'Friday Mash Up' Challenge #105. This week's challenge is:
- Create a project using the "Sketch".
- Create a "Birthday" project.
- Or Mash it Up and create a "Birthday project using the Sketch".
I have been working on a batch of cards for Operation Write Home using K&Co. Susan Winget Botanicals 12 x 12 papers and a bunch of stickers that match. In sorting through all the stuff in my project basket I came across this flower image I had colored some time ago, but never used. It just went soooo well with this scrap of the K&Co paper, I had to sneak it into a card (so the stickers wouldn't be jealous, ya know?). The daisy image is from 'Enjoy every Moment' by Close to My Heart. I stamped it in Black Staz-on on white smoothy cardstock and colored it with Prisma Colored pencils and mineral spirits.
I cut out the flower image with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles #3 (from smallest), and sponged Memento Pistachio Ink while it was still in the die. I used the Resplendent Rectangles #4 to cut the mat from Bazzil Purple cardstock. I mounted it to the card with foam dimensionals. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy's Happy Birthdays set. I stamped it on a scrap of white with the Memento Pistachio ink and fish-tailed the ends with my 1" square punch. I tied a double length of SU Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine around the die cut, slipping it through the slots in the mat. I love the soft colors of the K&C design papers. This card will go into my own stash as in order to make the sketch work for me I had to make a bigger card, and not an A2 that OWH requests. Enjoy, and please leave a comment. Feed back is always appreciated!
Here are some pics of some of the cards I will be sending off to OWH in the near future.
