Truly Scrumptious sketch challenge blog...

I came across another sketch challenge blog the other day called Truly Scrumptious . This is their first sketch challenge so I thought I'd participate. It has taken me until now to put the card together and upload it. I rarely make square cards, but I must say, I do like this layout. I used my new favourite Stampin' Up! Specialty Designer Series Paper (Parisian Breeze) and the coordinating colours of Baja Breeze and Close to Cocoa. Whisper White is my other neutral. I used Nestabilities for my punches (round and scallop). I used brads along with the felt flowers from Flower Fusion that matched. I finished it off with the Baja Breeze grosgrain ribbon. The stamp sets used were Dreams du Jour and Hugs & Wishes.

Watch for a couple of posts for cards using different ways to Watercolour. These cards (and more) will be one of the first classes that Cathy & I organize in the near future. More details to follow re signing up for the class. Hope this is a bit of a teaser for you!!
