SC 038/12...

Crikey these weeks come round fast.  It just seems like yesterday that I posted the card for the challenge, but of course a new week sees a new challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.
Along with the sketch we had to use the current "In Colours".  I chose to use a couple of colours that will be retiring come September.  I will admit I have not used these colours as much as I should have.

Measurements -
Base Card - Poppy Parade - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 21cm x 15cm - Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Whisper White - 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Poppy Parade - 2 1/8" x 3 1/2" or 9cm x 5,5cm

Layer 5 - Whisper White - 3 3/4" x 2 5/8" or 9.5cm x 6.5cm

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Growing Green
Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade
Cardstock - Whisper White, Poppy Parade
DSP - In Colours Designer Series Paper Patterns
Punches - Itty Bitty
Embossing Folders - Square Lattice
Ribbon - 1/2" Stitched-Poly - Peach Parfait
Accessories - Tombow Multipurpose Glue, SU! Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Mini Glue Dots, Blender Pen

I inked my image with Pear Pizzazz Ink & stamped direct onto the small piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
Envelope & Inside Card...
Using my Blender Pen, I coloured my image with Peach Parfait, inking my Pen a little at a time.  Feeling that it needed a little bit of a lift, I then added dashes of Poppy Parade Ink & blended with my Blender Pen.  The piece was run through the Bigshot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder & adhered to the piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock with Tombow Multipurpose Ink.

I punched 3 small flowers using flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Set, worked out where I wanted to place them, applied Tombow to the back of each & adhered to the larger piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I adhered the piece of DSP to the piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock &then to the large piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The whole lot was then run through the Bigshot & Embossing Folder - Square Lattice.

I adhered the piece of Ribbon across the width of the embossed piece, adhered the stamped piece to the top of the card with SU! Dimensionals, tied a bow, adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots, & adhered 3 Rhinestones to the DSP flowers

All in all a very easy card, once which I am really happy with.  When making it, I didn't realise that it would be so clean & white!  My type of card!

Vicky, I love your card. I think that lots of white is always gorgeous. The image is coloured to perfection and I love all the inlaid embossing. Absolutely stunning.
