An Honourable Mention!!!


This card uses a great new SU stamp set that I just got on my last order, Big Blooms. I've seen so many gorgeous designs with it, so I knew I had to use it for the sketch challenge on Julee's blog!!

I grabbed my Basic Grey Phoebe paper and grabbed the colours from those two pieces of pp. Cool Caribbean is just such a pretty colour and I will miss it when it is gone!! *sniff, sniff* So I used it as the base of the card and put the two pieces of Phoebe paper according to her sketch. Then I kissed the two big blooms!! The big one was inked up with Chocolate Chip ink and then kissed on the Soft Swirls bg stamp and the middle bloom was stamped onto an inked up Floral bg stamp. The middle one is inked with Cool C and then I stamped the thank you in Chocolate Chip using a Taggers Dozen stamp and then I went over it with my Sakura Stardust pen. I layered them on each other and pop dotted the blooms, added some ribbon, the three green brads and doodled around the edge!

Julee just posted that she had a TON of entries and I received an honourable mention.....I'm SO honoured.....giggle!

NOW, don't forget to play around with the sketch I posted yesterday for a challenge!! I have already received two great entries and I hope you will join in too!!!

This is such a beautiful card. I love the mix of happy colors and papers. I'm a Cool Caribbean fan as well, whatever shall we do when it goes out to sea? *sniff*

I love this card - it seems very GROOVY to me!
I like the layering of the 3d pieces of the flower and the green brads (look like granny smith apples!).
Congrats on the honourable mention!
