"Congratulations" SCS Challenges.

Good Morning!

Well, I didn't think I would have anything to share with you today; but I was able to do a bit of stamping last night while I was watching a movie with DH. So, here is my card for yesteday's SCS sketch challenge. I also combined it with this week's color challenge to use Bravo Burgundy, Kraft and Vanilla. This is a gorgeous color combo and I'm glad I was able to do it. I started with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Bravo Burgundy that I folded in half. Next I added a 4 x 5 1/2 piece of kraft. The two burgundy squares are both 2 1/2 x 2 1/2. I stamped a piece of Vanilla card stock with go to "Fine Lace" background stamp in Bravo Burgundy ink and then cut into two 2" in squares to layer on the Burgundy squares. Next I added a 2 x 4 1/2 piece of Kraft card stock with foam dimensionals to the center of the card. The main floral image in then center is from SU's retired hostess set "Echoes of Kindness" I stamped it in Bravo Burgundy ink and then used my aqua painters and the ink pad to color it in. The "Congratulations" on the side is also from SU and I stamped it, along with the sentiment at the bottom with Basic Brown ink. Finally, of course, I added the faux white stitching lines around the edges of the Kraft pieces. I've been doing that a lot lately, I know; but what can I say, I just really like it!
Ok, that's all for me. I hope you like it and I'll see you tomorrow!
