SCS COLOR CHALLENGE CC134 and SKETCH CHALLENGE SC143

This card combines today's SCS Color Challenge (CC134) of Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip and River Rock ... and last week's SCS Sketch Challenge (SC143). Have I ever mentioned how weird River Rock is to photograph???? Sometimes it looks so green! Just so ya' know ... the color in the photo that is not Chocolate Chip and not Blue Bayou IS River Rock!

I used my handy-dandy Crop-A-Dile to set the Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelet in the center of the flowers which are stamped in Chocolate Chip on Blue Bayou Prints DP, and adhered with a Pop-Up Glue Dot. Before adhering the flower, I curled the petals around a pen. The River Rock CS circles surrounding the Antique Brass Eyelets were punched with the 1/4" Circle Punch.


RECIPE
Stamps: Doodle This (pg. 99), "for you" from All Holidays (pg. 143)
Paper: Chocolate Chip and Blue Bayou CS, River Rock and Blue Bayou Prints DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic
Embellishments: Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelet, Antique Brass Brads, Blue Bayou Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: 1/4" Circle Punch, 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch, Crop-a-dile
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals, Pop-Up Glue Dot

That card is beautiful Nancy. I love all the ideas of curling the flower petals, and the river rock paper behind the brads with the small punch. Love the pattern paper which gives texture and the dinension the pop up dots and curly petals give. Great work.

I agree that River Rock is hard to photograph. I thought this was Certainly Celery. Your card is beatiful! Great job combining the two challenges.
