CR84FN28 & SSSC117


Since the Paper Players extended their challenge, I had a wee bit of time today to play in a couple other challenges.  Although I am not really feeling the love for this card, it is one I will add to my birthday stash… is bright & colorful, I will say that.  I began with the Sweet Sunday sketch #117:


and the CR84FN28 color challenge:

to make my card:


I was also going to submit this for a new challenge, CAS-ual Fridays, but it wasn’t really CAS!!!  So I’ll try that again later this week!  I used two PTI sets along with some October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket papers. Since Stazon doesn’t work well with clear stamps, I did some experimenting with Palette ink and my watercolor crayons on Shimmery White cardstock.  My first few petals bled until I heat-set the ink and I had no more problems!  I used some baker’s twine from Tammy, my new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch and some Brights buttons along with some rickrack from my sewing stash! 


I babysat today, which is not something I usually do on Sundays.  They called for heavy downpours—they got it wrong.  It was beautiful!  Dana tried to accessorize Cassidy in a “Hawaiian” theme:




It lasted about two seconds!  LOL!  Thanks so much for visiting today!
