CCMC 211

Good Morning, Stampers!

It is hard to believe that this is the last Sketch Challenge for the Create with Connie and Mary New Catalog Edition... Where did the time go??
This final sketch challenge is a fun one! I needed a baby card for a dear friend and knew that this sketch would be perfect. I wanted just a little "frill" and the embossed lace does just that!


I started out by embossing (2) strips of So Saffron using the Delicate Designs lace folder. I adhered the two strips to the So Saffron card front. I then attached the Neutrals Polka Dot DSP to the center. On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the image from the Two by Two a la carte stamp using Jet Black Stazon ink. I watercolored using a blender pen and So Saffron, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Basic Gray, Marina Mist and Pumpkin Pie inks. I finished the card by mounting the stamped image to a Whisper White Scallop Circle using dimensionals. I added (3) little flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes in Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray & So Saffron and topped them each with a little pearl.
The senitment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set stamped in Jet Black Staz On and cut with the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits.

This is such a cute card. I started out wanting to do the same embossed scallops on the outside edges of my card - but instead I ended up embossing the center strip with the other one. I love this stamp! Thanks for sharing.
