Nature Walk Sympathy- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!

I really enjoy doing weekly challenges- not only because they keep me stamping, but they also challenge me to use colors that I may not normally combine or sketches (layouts) that I may not have thought of on my own.   I don’t know about you, but sometimes I tend to gravitate to the same colors and sketches and the challenges allow me to go “outside the box”:-). 


I love the colors from this week's PP34 Challenge at The Paper Players (http://www.thepaperplayers.blogspot.com) and decided to incorporate them with the CCMC138 sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary Challenge (http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com).   
Again, the Design Teams at both sites have gorgeous creations- if you have time, check them out! 






To create this card:

Using SU! Markers in Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake, color the floral image from the new stamp set, Nature Walk and repeatedly stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Mount this layer onto Cherry Cobbler and again onto Whisper White.

Use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of Cajun Craze with the Vintage Wallpaper EF and a piece of Crumb Cake with the Finial Press EF.  Spray the Crumb Cake piece with Frost White Shimmer Paint and cut a circle using the Big Shot and the Circles Original Die.  Trim another piece of Crumb Cake to layer onto Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White (punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch).

Layer the pieces according to the sketch (I modified the sketch for a landscape card versus portrait), attach the ribbon and pearls and mount onto Whisper White and again onto Cherry Cobbler.

Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Cherry Cobbler ink onto Whisper White and punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Layer onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler punched with the Modern Label Punch and add pearls to finish the card. 

I hope you like this card and that it will bring comfort to the recipient.

Thanks again for stopping by-God Bless!
