You're In My Thoughts- Color and Sketch Challenge

Hi Again Stampers!

I loved the colors from this week’s CMC137 Create with Connie and Mary Challenge (http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com) and the SSC190 sketch challenge at Stamping 411 (http://www.stamping411.blogspot.com/). The Design Team creations from both sites are fabulous- if you have time, check them out! 

I needed to make a quick card for a dear friend and decided to use My Digital Studio (MDS) again to create another hybrid card (I hope you are not getting too tired of the hybrid cards:-).

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot and the new Tulip Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock.  Using a piece of Pear Pizzazz embossed with the Background Patterns Texture Plate (herringbone pattern- I already had this embossed piece in my stash), punch the edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and then align the Tulip EF to emboss the edge above the punched border. 

Using MDS, print the floral image from Elements of Style, the bird image from Nature (mirrored to face the left) and the sentiment from Word Play onto Whisper White.  

Color the flowers using SU! Markers in Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz.  Using the Rose Red marker and the Color Spritzer Tool, spritz the floral image and thje sentiment.  Mount the floral image onto Baja Breeze Cardstock and adhere the Rose Red Seam Binding. 

Use the Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray marker to lightly color the bird image and “fussy cut” the bird (be careful around the feet). 

Use the Tag Punch to punch out the sentiment and layer onto Baja Breeze cardstock (also punched with the Tag Punch and the Scallop Trim Punch).

Assemble the card, mount onto Pear Pizzazz and Rose Red cardstock.  Add the pearls and Rose Red Seam Binding bow to finish the card. 

Even though there is not one stamped image, I hope you like this card- I had a great time creating it! 

Thanks again for stopping by- have fun stamping and God Bless!
