TWO CARDS FOR YOU

This first card combines SCS Sketch Challenge SC180 and SCS Color Challenge CC170. I really like this color combination of Real Red, Regal Rose, and So Saffron. For some reason, the combination reminds me of a candy store in downtown Disney! (don't ask me why!???)

I took these photos at night so it's hard to tell, but there is a Yellow Fire Circle Rhinestone Brad in the center of the flower and paper piercing on the corners of the diamond-shaped Real Red panel. The small flower image from Office Accoutrement is stamped off with So Saffron Classic Ink on the center Whisper White panel.


RECIPE
Stamps: Office Accoutrement, Hugs & Wishes
Paper: So Saffron Prints DP, Whisper White, Regal Rose, and Real Red CS
Ink: So Saffron, Real Red, and Regal Rose Classic Ink
Embellishments: Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Yellow Fire Circle Rhinestone Brad
Tools: Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Pack
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals, Pop-Up Glue Dot

This next card is a total case of THIS CARD by justcrazy on SCS. I thought justcrazy's use of this Fall Flowers DP with this stamp set, Spring Solitude was brilliant, and I was inspired to copy it! The only changes I made include adding a sentiment in the lower right hand corner, and adding paper piercing on the Old Olive diamond shaped panel.

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, and Old Olive Markers
