Friend to Friend- A Fun Color and Sketch Combo

Hi Stampers!!

I decided to try the bright, fun colors from this week’s CQC211 ColourQ Challenge and actually ended up creating two cards- this is my first attempt and also incorporates the fabulous CCMC273 Create with Connie andMary Sketch Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit either site yet, I would highly recommend stopping by and checking out all of the different Design Team projects as well as the many other ideas from the weekly participants.

To create this quick CAS card:

Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Basic Black Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the Word Window Punch.

Using the Big Shot™ emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and use the 2 ½” XL Circle Punch to punch out eh circle element for the sketch. Adhere to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and again to a piece of Strawberry Slush and finally onto the Basic Black card base.

Punch the flower from an embossed piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock (using the Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) and the Pansy Punch to punch out a piece of embossed Whisper White cardstock (using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).

Attach the flower layers together, add the Pumpkin Pie button to the center and add the Lucky Limeade leaves (from the Bird Builder Punch).  

Mount the flower in the center of the circle per the sketch to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Basic Black

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

Accessories: Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Beautifully Baroque, Perfect Polka Dots, Chevron; Punches- Bird Builder, Blossom, Pansy, Word Window, 2 ½” XL Circle, Pumpkin Pie button

Thanks again for stopping by- I will be posting the other card using this same color combo shortly…
