Inkspirations Challenge #73...

It is amazing what you find when you clean your desk & how bits of left over scraps will come together to make a card, let alone fit a challenge.  This is what I did for the Sketch Challenge over at Inkispirations Challenge  I took the colours from scraps lying on my desk & teamed them with the scraps of DSP.  I don't feel so guilty of not cleaning my desk!  That is my excuse anyhow.

I was recently asked if I stamped my envelopes to match my cards.  Ever since I started making cards, I had to match the envelopes to my cards.  I know the ladies I used to do cards with, thought it funny & strange, but that was me - has to match.  I also do the inside to match as well.  In future, I will show you both the envelope & inside, along with the card.

Base Card - Crumb Cake- 5 7/8" x 4 1/4" or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 -  Cherry Cobbler - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Very Vanilla - 2 1/4" x 2" or 6cm x 5cm
Layer 3 - DSP - 2 1/8" x 1 7/8" or 5.5cm x 4.5cm
Layer 4 - Soft Suede - 5 3/4" x 7/8" or 14.5cm x 1cm
Layer 5 - Early Expresso - 3" x 2 1/2" or 8cm x 6.5cm
Layer 6 - Very Vanilla - 2 78" x 2 1/8" or 7.5cm x 6cm

I adhered both pieces of DSP to Soft Suede & Very Vanila &  attached to Cherry Cobbler - as per the sketch.  Using Early Expresso & Soft Suede Inks, I stamped the image randomly onto the piece of Very Vanilla, adhered it to the Expresso Expresso, then to the Cherry Cobbler.  This piece was then adhered to the Base Card - Crumb Cake.

Using my Boho Blossoms Punch, I punch 5 flowers in Cherry Cobbler & adhered these randomly to the card.  Basic Pearls were adhered to the middle of each flower. 

I used my Cherry Cobbler SU Marker to colour in the greeting, stamped directly onto Very Vanilla & punched out using the Word Window Punch.  I adhered this to the punched piece of Soft Suede which had been punched using my Modern Label.  This was adhered to the card.  I didn't exactly place it as per the sketch, so I hope the operators will forgive for this.

This is beautiful! I like the excuse to not clean up the stamping desk! Wouldn't want to miss out on a chance for a great card. :)
