When My Mind Wanders- A Fun Sketch, Color and Anything Goes Challenge!!

Hi Stampers! 

I had a very interesting few days and despite all of the “excitement” (long story including a trip to the ER but everything is OK now :-)), I was able to find time last night and this afternoon to create a few cards.  
This card was created using the AW20 Color Challenge along with the FMS144 Sketch and the SR236 Anything Goes Challenge

If you have not linked up to the challenge sites yet, I urge you to do so- great samples by all!

To create this card:

Stamp the Bloom for You  onto Whisper White cardstock three separate times using Calypso Coral, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink  (don’t forget to clean the stamp before inking with a new color :-)).  

Punch each of the flowers out first using the ½” Circle Punch (for the center) followed by the 7/8”Scallop Punch and the final punch using the Fun Flower Punch.  

Assemble one of the flowers using the Calypso Coral Fun Flower piece, the Blackberry Bliss scallop and Hello Honey center and assemble one center only using the Calypso Coral scallop and Blackberry Bliss center.

Cut a panel from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.   Punch the leaves from Hello Honey cardstock using the Bird Builder Punch and add to the panel along with the Calypso Fun Flower.

Stamp the sentiment using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and emboss above the sentiment using the Big Shot™ along with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Trim and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim again and adhere to the Calypso Coral card base.

Cut two of the same size banners using the Big Shot™ and the Banner Collection Framelits™ - cut one from a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and the other from a piece of Hello Honey Lullaby DSP. 

Before layering the banners, use the Pansy Punch to punch out a flower from the Blackberry Bliss banner (you will not see this cut) and then cut the Blackberry Bliss banner in half horizontally.  Layer the Hello Honey Lullaby DSP banner onto the Blackberry Bliss banner with the banner points showing at the bottom as well as a bit of the Blackberry Bliss showing at the top.

Punch out the leaves using the Bird Builder Punch from Calypso Coral cardstock, adhere the leaves and the Pansy flower to the Hello Honey banner, add the Calypso Coral/Blackberry Bliss center created in the steps above and add a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to the top of the banner.

Mount the Blackberry Bliss panel to the card front (per the sketch) and add the Hello Honey banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the Pearls to the flower centers and across the top of the banner to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Bloom for You, Bloom with Hope

Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Hello Honey

Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral ; Designer Series Paper- Lullaby and Park Lane

Hope this post makes sense (my new medications are settling in :-) ) so I will post the other cards later today ... Blessings to all of you and thanks again for stopping by!
