CCMC 149...

Yes, another posting & another challenge.  You may need your sunglasses for this one.  When I saw the challenge, I wanted to use the DSP - Sweet & Slumber, while at the same time using Basic Black Cardstock.

This challenge comes from Create with Connie & Mary  Why not hop over & have a go yourself!

Base Card - Basic Black - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10.5cm - Score & Fold in half
Layer 1 - Daffodil Delight - 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" or 11.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 4 3/8" x 3 3/8" or 11cm x 6cm
Layer 3 - Tangerine Tango - 3" x 2 3/8" or 9cm x 6.5cm
Layer 4 - Whisper White - 2 7/8" x 2 1/4" or 8.5cm x 6cm

I randomly spread Shimmering Paint - Frost White over the Whisper White Cardstock & allowed to dry.

Prior to adhering DSP to my Daffodil Delight Cardstock, I punched corners of both pieces using my Corner Edge Punch.  This was adhered to the Base Card, as per the sketch. 

Using Tangerine Tango & Daffodil Delight Inks & SU Sponges, I sponged over the top of the Shimmer Paint.  I stamped the butterfly image using Basic Black Ink.  This was adhered to Tangerine Tango & then to the card.

I cut a small piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock & punched one side using my Scallop Edge Punch.  I then attached Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon along the middle of this piece & tied a bow prior to adhering to the card.

Again, I have no sentiment.  I find this sometimes covers a lot of occasions.
Supplies -
Stamp Set - All a Flutter
Ink - Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango
Cardstock - Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango
DSP - Sweet & Sour Speciality
Punches - Scallop Edge, Corner Edge
Ribbon - Grosgrain 1/4" - Basic Black
Accessories - Multipurpose Glue, Shimmer Paint - Frost White, SU Sponges

Until next time, Enjoy!
