Be Creative Every Day
Asian Meets Eastern and the SUO Challenges

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #457

I love Thursdays.  I love the challenges each week!  This week the challenge is a sketch.  


I have to admit that I find the sketches a little harder for me than the color challenges.  I do like how this one turned out.


This card is helping me check off two items from my To Do list.  Of course, the challenge, and also my friend and downline Kaye's birthday card.  I've also fallen in love with the Falling Flowers stamp set and the May Flowers Framelits Dies.  It is carried over to the new catalog.  Hurrah!

  • The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.  It features one of the new In Colors, but it is available for you now with the Eastern Palace bundle.  The name is Tranquil Tide.
  • The patterned paper is from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper from the new catalog.  It is cut 3 X 4.  Place this paper on Whisper White cut at 3 1/8 x 4 1/8.
  • The two flowers and leaves are stamped with Versamark on Watercolor Paper. Use White Stampin' Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool to set.  Cut out with the May Flowers Framelits Dies.  Color the pieces with your Aqua Painter and ink from the lids of Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight. The leaves were glued down.  The flowers were placed on using dimensionals.
  • The banner is Whisper White and measures 1 3/8 x 3 1/4.  Stamp with Calypso Coral.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Milestone Momments, a carry over from the Occasions catalog.  Make a notch at the end using the Triple Banner Punch.  Place the banner under the flower.  Put some dimensionals down near the end of the banner to give it a little lift.


Here's the inside of the card.  The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.  Add another flower and leaf made the same way as the outside.


Happy Birthday to you, Kaye.  I hope you liked your card.

Thanks for coming by today.  Please come back!
