Above & Beyond- A Color and Sketch Challenge :-)

Hi Again Stampers!!
Here is the second card that I created using the CQC211 ColourQ Challenge Colors along with the PPA176 Sketch at Pals Paper Arts (although I am too late to link up to the PPA sketch- I still wanted to share :-))

Again, I hope you will take the time to visit each site – amazing inspiration from all of the Design Team projects as well as the other entrants!

This card was quick and easy for me since I used quite a few scraps that were already pre-punched (remember, I punch out all of my layers that you do not see and use them for other cards :-))...comes in handy when I need a quick card :-)

To create this card:

Using the Big Shot™ emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and adhere the Basic Black diagonal piece of cardstock per the sketch.

Stamp the sentiment from One in a Million using White Craft Ink and adhere the panel to a background piece of Whisper White and again onto the Basic Blaxk card base.

Add the Basic Black cardstock strip along with the piece of Whisper White (all from my scraps) and trim to size.

Create the flowers- use the Pansy Punch and Strawberry Slush cardstock,  the 5 Petal Punch for the leaves from Lucky Limeade cardstock and the 7/8” Scallop Circle Punch from Whisper White cardstock for flower centers.  Add the retired Pumpkin Pie corduroy button brad to the flower centers and adhere the flowers to the diagonal panel. 

Create the paper bow with the XL Oval Punch and a few scrap pieces of Strawberry Sluch cardstock- add the retired Pumpkin Pie corduroy button brad.  Adhere to the strip at the bottom to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  One in A Million

Ink: White Craft Ink

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush, Lucky Limeade (retired)

Accessories: Big Shot™,  Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder,  Punches- Pansy, 7/8” Scallop Circle, 5 Petal , XL Oval; retired Pumpkin Pie corduroy button brads

Thanks again for visiting- have a great evening!
