SC 025/12...

Sunday morning brings the start of a new challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations, so we hope you will join us this week.

It was my turn to bring the challenge this week & boy, did I have a hard time creating my card....  Along with the sketch, we have to use the colours of Pink Pirouette & Early Expresso.

Measurements -
Base Card - Early Expresso - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 10.5cm - Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Pink Pirouette - 4" x 1 1/2" or 10cm x 3.5cm
Layer 2 3 4 - Pink Pirouette - 2 3/8" x 1 7/8" or 6cm x 4.8cm

I inked my wheel in Early Expresso Ink & run it down the long strip of Pink Pirouette before adhering to the Base Card - Early Expresso with Snail Adhesive.

I run 2 pieces of Pink Pirouette through the Bigshot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder & adhered 1 piece to the bottom & 1 piece to the top of the Base Card.

For the middle piece, I inked another wheel in Early Expresso Ink & run it over the 3rd piece of Pink Pirouette & adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

I stamped my stentiment onto Whisper White using Early Expresso Ink, run it through the Bigshot using the Ovals Die, sponged Early Expresso around the edge, stamped the flower image over the top before adhering to the Base Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I am not sure if I like the effect of the oval edge, but I suppose it will grow on me!

I stamped 1 large flower & 1 small flower onto Whisper White with Early Expresso Ink, cut around both flowers, adhered the small to the large flower with Stampin Dimensionals & then to the Card, again with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I appied a Basic Pearl to the centre of the flower

I love this Vicky. The wheels really make the card special. I guess it's true you and I do think alike. Really beautiful.
