PP19 and SSC172- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Again, Stampers!

I needed another sympathy card so I decided to incorporate two challenges– The Paper Players PP19- Jaydee’s Color Challenge (see ) along with the sketch challenge from Stamping411 with the Operators #SSC172 (see 

I decided to use one of the new Hostess Level II sets- Fast & Fabulous to create the focal image. 

I stamped the large floral image in Basic Black on Whisper White and used a Blender Pen with  Real Red ink to fill in the flowers. 

Sponge Daubers and the Color Spritzer Tool with Basic Black were used to distress the image.

The Real Red layer was embossed with the new Elegant Lines EF and a few pearls, Frost White Shimmer Paint and 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon finished off the card (the Shimmer Paint did not photograph well). 

Stamp Sets:  Fast & Fabulous, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red                 
Accessories: Big Shot, Elegant Lines EF, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Modern Label Punch, Frost White Shimmer Paint Mist, Pearls, Sponge Dauber, Color Spritzer Tool, Dimensionals

This is a quick easy card- I hope you like it!
