Strawberry Tea



Here's a card I made for today's SCS Color Challenge (Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, Bravo Burgundy). Have you seen these adorable Sugar Nellie stamps? Oh so cute! I bought this Strawberry Tea stamp as well as three of the CUTE animals from the Home Grown Collection. I can't wait to get them all inked up and made into cards.



I followed sketch #11 from the Whiff of Joy blog....I know, I didn't use a Whiff of Joy image....it was a total accident. I printed the sketch days ago, added it to my bin of sketches, and forgot to write that it was from the WOJ blog (and should have been used with a WOJ image)...didn't realize it until after I finished my card and went to upload it to SCS. I hope the girls on the WOJ site don't mind. I really LOVE the sketch!

The card measures 5.25" square. The burgundy scallop circle is up on dimensionals, so are the primas. The Strawberry Tea image was stamped twice, watercolored, and the second image was layered over the first one with Dimensionals.

The inside of the card follows the same layout with the embossed Regal Rose panel, Kiwi DP panel, and layered circles.
