CQC53 Wish Big

Hi Stampers!  

I know I should be preparing for my workshop on Saturday, but I just had to create a card using the colors from this week’s ColourQ #53 - check out http://colourq.blogspot.com/ for lovely samples from the Design Team (as well as all of the other entries).    I decided to use the Stamping411 with the Operators sketch SSC171 again (see http://www.stamping411.blogspot.com/ - such a great sketch!).





This card was quick and easy- I stamped the floral image from Just Believe with Pacific Point and used SU! Markers in Pear Pizzazz and Pumpkin Pie to color in the flowers.  I used a  the Color Spritzer Tool and a SU! Baja Breeze Marker to add a little interest in the background.

After layering the panels, I used a previously embossed piece of Whisper White and mounted this onto the Pacific Point and Pear Pizzazz layer.  I originally had a simple stamped sentiment with three pearls to the left, but I did not like the way that turned out so I decided to layer behind the sentiment with the Decorative XL Punch.

Stamp Sets:  Just Believe, Short & Sweet
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Pacific Point                              
Accessories: Big Shot, Finial Press EF, Color Spritzer Tool, SU! Markers- Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, 5/8” Pumpkin Pie Satin Ribbon, Decorative Label XL Punch, Pearls

Thanks again for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
