SC 040/12...

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums of the world!  Hope you all have a great day & get spoilt rotten!

Our new weekly challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations starts today.  This week we have only the sketch to go by.  Gwen has been very easy on us!

I started out with a completely different card in mind, had it all made up in my head & then blow me down if I couldn't find the stamp set.  I then convenienced myself that I didn't even have the set I wanted to use!  The final result turned into a very quick 5 minute card, but these are good to do.

In fact, this card is going in the mail today!

Measurements -
Base Card - Chocolate Chip - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 21cm x 15cm - Scored in the middle & folded in half

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Forever Young, A Word for You

I adhered the smaller piece of DSP to the small piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock prior to adhering to the large piece of DSP & then to the Base Card - Chocolate Chip.

I stamped my greeting onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Chocolate Chip Ink, punched using the Modern Label Punch &adhered to the DSP with Snail Adhesive.  My image was stamped direct onto Whisper White Cardstock with Pool Party Ink & adhered to the long piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock & then to the Base Card.

As I said a very easy 5 minute card!

I hope you can join us this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations as we would love to see what you come up with using the sketch.

This is really pretty Vicky. I love the colours, so soft and pretty. Gotta love those DSP Paper Stacks for making everything come together so well.
