With Sympathy- CCMC130 and CQC64 Challenge

Hi Stampers!   I created this card using the CCMC130 sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary (www.createwithconnieandmary.com along with the colors from this week’s ColourQ Challenge #CQC64 (www.colourq.blogspot.com).  One thing I love about sketch challenges is that you can generally flip the sketch, re-position the ribbon, etc. to create a card that is uniquely yours.  I decided to change the position of the ribbon on this card so you could see more of the focal image.

To create this card:





Using Real Red Classic Ink stamp the focal image from Fresh Cuts and color using SU! Markers in Pear Pizzazz, Regal Rose and Real Red.  Using a Sponge Dauber, sponge the edges in Real Red and layer onto Regal Rose. Using the Pinking Hearts Border Punch along the lower edge, adhere the focal image and spray the entire piece with Frost White Shimmer Paint spray.
Emboss a piece of Pear Pizzazz using the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper EF and spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint.  Emboss a piece of Pink Pirouette with the Square Lattice EF, adhere the layers and attach the 5/8” Real Red Satin Ribbon.

Layer onto Real Red, add the pearls and finish with the sentiment.

Stamp Sets:  Fresh Cuts, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette, Real Red
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice and Vintage Wallpaper EF, Pinking Hearts Border, Small Oval and Medium Oval Punches, 5/8” Real Red Satin Ribbon, Pearls, SU! Pear Pizzazz, Real Red and Regal Rose Markers, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Thanks again for visiting - I hope all of you have a great week!
