SC 011/11...

This is my card for the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations  I am a little late in posting mine & have taken a couple of days off, & now that I have sort of finished all the stuff I had to do, decided to make a sample.

The challenge was set by Kris & not only did we have to go by the sketch but also use the stamp set "Season of Joy". 

Base Card - Riding Hood Red - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 21cm x 15cm - score @ 4 1/8" or 10.47cm & fold in half
Layer 1 - Early Expresso - 5 3/4" x 4 1/4" or 14.5cm x 10.5cm
Layer 2 - Riding Hood Red - 4" x 3 3/4" or 10cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - DSP - 3 7/8" x 3 5/8" or 9.5cm x 9cm
Layer 4 - Riding Hood Red - 3 3/4" x 3 1/4" or 9.5cm x 8cm
Layer 5 - Whisper White - 3 5/8" x 3 1/8" or 9cm x 7.5cm
Layer 6 - Early Expresso - 2 7/8" x 2 3/8" or 7cm x 6cm
Layer 7 - Whisper White - 2 3/4" x 2 1/4" or 6.5cm x 5.5cm

I sort of made up by card as I went along.  In fact I started from the inside & worked my way out!  It happens this way a lot for me!

Using Riding Hood Red Ink, I stamped my image direct onto Whisper White Cardstock & adhered to a piece of Early Expresso Cardstock with my Snail Adhesive.

I run the piece of Whisper White Cardstock through the Bigspot & Embossing Folder - Petals a Plenty, coloured the middle of the flowers with my SU Marker - Riding Hood Red & adhered to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock.  I thought this EF matched the stamp set perfectly.  This piece was adhered to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock.

The DSP piece was adhered to a piece of Riding Hood Red & then adhered to the main piece of Early Expresso Cardstock.  I adhered all my separate pieces to this main piece, as per the sketch.  I wanted to tuck my ribbon ends under the main piece of Early Expresso Cardstock prior to adhering to the Base Card - Riding Hood Red.

To break the colours up a bit, I adhered Marina Mist Ribbon across the top of the card & tied a double bow-tie to the centre.  I applied small Basic Rhinestones to the flowers & snowflake in the stamped image.

This is really pretty Vicky. I haven't been tempted by that DSP but you are winning me over.
