It is Thursday and you know what that mean! It is time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week it is a sketch challenge and it was a tough one for me.
I had just received my Stampin' Up! demonstrator pre-order and wanted to use something from that beautiful box. Being able to pre-order from the upcoming catalogs is such a great bonus given to Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
Are you wondering what is that lovely color... Fresh Freesia! Such a lovely spring time color. The card base is Fresh Freesia and the 2 patterned paper designs are from the Pansy Petals DSP. I like gingham and there are 3 different gingham sheets in the Pansy Petals DSP. Makes me very happy to have some gingham back.
The flower is from the Art Gallery bundle. The petals were stamped using Fresh Freesia, once at full strength and then stamped off. The leaf and stem were stamped in Old Olive.
The floral DSP was cut out using one of the new Scalloped Contours dies. This die set features 5 different scalloped rectangle dies, a scalloped border die and 2 dies that coordinate with the Color & Contour stamp set. This new die set is another great basic and will be used a lot. The gingham scalloped rectangle was cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created with this sketch.
