May Dreamy Challenge

Hi everyone! This month's Stamper's Dream Challenge is a color challenge with bling and texture. The colors are Blush Red Dark, Island Mist Medium and Birchtone Light with Suede Brown Dark or Ivory accents. If you don't have the Prism papers, the SU colors are Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, and Sahara Sand....or you can use colors that are close.


When uploading to SCS, use keyword SDDC7 and be sure to link your project to Michelle's blog post because she has an AWESOME dreamy treat that you can enter to WIN!...see it over there to the right?....seriously awesome, right?!!

My card is a 5" square card. The birchtone light panel was run through the Cuttlebug with my Paisley Impressabilities. Tosha stamped this pretty Apples image for me (Artful Stamper)...thanks Tosha! The main image on the Labels One nestie is up on foam tape. A second bowl and apple was colored, cut out, and popped up on foam tape as well. I colored four of my floral mini rhinestones that Michelle sent me (thanks Michelle!!) with an E57 Copic marker and then added them to the ribbon and paper with a small dot of Diamond Glaze. The layout is Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday sketch, the pretty lace ribbon is from my friend Janice (thanks Janice!).



Here's a close-up of the dimension:
