Thank You – Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!

I created this card using this fantastic cake inspiration photo from this week's Create with Connie and Mary( Thursday Challenge CCMC129 - check out the Design Team's cards along with the other entries- they are truly gorgeous!   

I also used the unique sketch challenge from Stamping 411 with the Operators SSC182 (  Again, this site has so many wonderful designers on their Design Team plus the great submissions- what a wonderful place to visit each week!

To create this card:

Using the Big Shot and the Elegant Lines EF, emboss a piece of Whisper White and spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint. 

Emboss a piece of Marina Mist with the Vintage Wallpaper EF and using the “debossed” side, sponge on Whisper White craft ink. Round off the edges with the Corner Rounder Punch.  Attach the 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon.

Cut a piece of striped Bashful Blue DSP and round off the edges with the Corner Rounder Punch.  Stamp the floral image from Happiness Shared with Marina Mist ink on Whisper White (this image looks more like purple since I actually forgot to clean the stamp first and it had Cherry Cobbler ink from a previous card-oops!- so I repeated the Cherry Cobbler, stamp off numerous times, then Marina Mist for the thank you sentiment to match the ink:-)).

Using the Circle Cutter Plus, cut a 3” circle from Marina Mist, adhere the focal image and add a pearl in the center of the flower.   

Finish the card off with the sentiment from Short & Sweet and punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Use the Modern Label Punch with Bashful Blue for the final layer.   

Stamp Sets:  Happiness Shared  
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue
Ink: Marina Mist (mixed with Cherry Cobbler by mistake), Craft Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Elegant Lines and Vintage Wallpaper EF, Bashful Blue DSP,  Corner Rounder, Word Window and Modern Label Punches,  Circle Cutter Plus, 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas week!
