Little C's Weekly Challenge #1 Card



Hi Everyone! I made this card for Jen's Little C's Aloha Weekly Challenge which started this week! The challenge is to follow a sketch that I posted about a week ago on my blog site. The sketch is provided below.

Jen will have weekly challenges from Tuesday through Sunday if any of you want to join in the fun and participate!

If you want to join in the challenge, check out Jen's blog site Pieces of Me for the details!

Here are a few other challenge card samples created by these talented ladies:





A few details about my card. . . .

I colored the image using my Copic Markers and added a bit of Stickles to glitz up the flowers a bit. To create a bit of color to the background, I rubbed SU Barely Banana and Red Rose ink using my sponge dauber.
I used SU Ticket corner punch to the corners of my cardstock and matted the image with SU Rose Red and Barely Banana cardstock.



To create the sentiment, I took a medium sized prima flower, adhered it to the card and with a foam tape layered the circular sentiment. To create the circular sentiment, I used SU 1" and 1 1/4" circle punch and the Word Window Punch.
Card Details:

Stamps: Inkadinkado

Paper: K&CO designer paper, SU Rose Red & Barely Banana

Ink: SU Rose Red & Barely Banana, Copic Markers

Accessories: Prima flowers, SU 1" and 1 1/4" circlue punch, paper piercer, foam tape, SU Ticket Corner Punch, Organdy ribbon, JoAnn brads
