Hey Chick for AAA #173
Love of Leaves for Festive Friday and Case This Sketch

Prized Peony for Atlantic Hearts Sketches #384 and CTD #609

Happy Friday!

So glad it is a long weekend!  I didn't get much time in my crafting cave today as I had hoped.  However, I was able to play along with two challenges - Atlantic Hearts Sketches #384 and Color Throwdown #609.  I used my favorite Stampin' Up! set, Prized Peony for my card and mixed it with some Stampin' Up! Playing with Patterns DSP.

Here's the sketch from AHS:

and the colors from ColorThrowdown:

I began by stamping the main flower from Prized Peony and colored them with my red-violet and green markers.  I cut some DSP from the Playing with Patterns and placed that onto a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock.  I added some enamel dots and a sentiment and the card was complete. 

Here's my card:


Here's a closer look at the colors - you get a much better idea of the purples:


And this one gives you a better feel of the different papers to match the sketch:


I still have to figure out the new photography set up - and how to get my watermark into the software!  I'll be back with another card tomorrow.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.



Card recipe:

  • Card stock:  Neenah Solar White 110#, Misty Moonlight - Stampin' Up!
  • Stamps:  Prized Peony - Stampin' Up!
  • DSP:  Playing with Patterns - Stampin' Up!
