A Floral Birthday- A Color, Sketch and Designer's Choice Challenge :-)
I had a chance to create a card last night that using the Create with Connie andMary CCMC374 Color Challenge along with The Paper Players PP264 Sketch Challenge and the Can You Case It? CYCI#88 Designer's Choice "Anything Goes" Challenge.
Again, I hope you will take the time (if you have not done so already) to visit the above challenge sites to check out all of the Design Team entries as well as the galleries- tremendous inspiration from all!
Ink the retired background stamp, En Francais using Calypso Coral Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Watermelon Wonder card stock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Finishing Touches Edgelit™ to cut out the strip from Whisper White cardstock, add to the bottom of the panel along with a scrap strip of Calypso Coral cardstock.
Emboss a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and use a sewing machine to add the embossed panel to a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock. Trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Ink the honeycomb background from Butterfly Basics with Blushing Bride Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, trim and stitch to a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock for the horizontal strip in the sketch.
Add this panel to the stamped panel created in the first step and mount to the card front.
Ink the floral image from Butterfly Basics using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the image using Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Watermelon Wonder (using an AquaPainter™ behind layers to soften the edges). Add a few white highlights to the flower center with the White Gel Pen.
Create a loose mask from scrap paper to cover the flower and stamp the honeycomb image using Blushing Bride Classic Ink. Add the canceled stamp image using Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink and a few shadows to all of the images with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.
Trim the panel and mount onto Blushing Bride cardstock, trim again and mount onto Calypso Coral cardstock.
Mount the panel onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Ink the butterfly using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, color with the Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers and punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
Add the butterfly to the card front (I used Hot Glue for this step and part of a dimensional behind the butterfly).
Ink the sentiment with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, punch out with the Word Window Punch and add a layer of Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral cardstock (also punched with the Word Window Punch and all three punched on the end with the Hexagon Punch to create the banner points).
Adhere the sentiment to the card front and add the Pearls to the corners.
Create a Calypso Coral bow with the Bow Builder Punch and mount to the card front along with the Antique Brad to finish off the card.
