Have a Sweet Day!


Hi everyone.  Today I've made a card for several challenges.  I am behind on some wonderful challenges, so I'm  covering off a few with this card.  Had fun making this using dies and punches ... and a "sweet" sentiment from AmyR stamps. :)



Stamps:  Sweet Sentiments (AmyR)
Paper:  White; Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink (SU!)
Ink:  Early Espresso, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Sahara Sand (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Memory Box dies:  Leafy Branch, Puffy Clouds; Picket Fence die (Poppy Stamps), Mini sun punch (Punch Bunch), Grass Border die (C.C. Designs), sponge, stylus and mat, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals



I glued two layers of the clouds together to make a thick die and then sponged the edges with Tempting Turquoise ink.  The Picket Fence is sponged lightly with Sahara Sand ink to give it definition from the white background.  And the leafy branch (portion of the die-cut) and Grass Border are sponged with Certainly Celery ink to also give them more definition.  The picket fence and small cloud are popped up ... as is the main front panel.


Here's a close-up:



This is for the following challenges:

SCS CAS Challenge (CAS215: tempting turquoise, certainly celery, pretty in pink)
