SC 04112...

Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations proved a lot harder for me than I thought it would.  I had an idea in my mind from the first time I saw the sketch, but when it come to creating it, well that idea went out the window & I ended up just winging this one.

The challenge was brought to us by Kris in the way of the sketch & using current "In Colours"

Measurements -
Base Card - Whisper White - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 - Wisteria Wonder - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 1 7/8" or 14.5cm x 5cm
Layer 3 - DSP - 5 5/8" x 2 1/8" or 14.5cm x 5.5cm

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Delicate Doilies, Short & Sweet
Ink - Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride
Cardstock - Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder
DSP - In Colours
Ribbon - 3/8" Ruffled - Wisteria Wonder
Punches - Modern Label, 2 1/2" Circle
Accessories -  Snail Adhesive, Basic Pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue

I randomly stamped an image from Delicate Doilies using both Wisteria Wonder & Blusing Bride Inks.

I adhered the piece of DSP to the RHS piece of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock & then the stamped piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Snail Adhesive.  This piece overlapped the piece of DSP a little so that I wouldn't have a space down the middle.

Ribbon was adhered along the bottom part of the Cardstock using Snail Adhesive, tucked the ends under & tied a bow.

I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Wisteria Wonder Ink, punched out with the Modern Label Punch, applied 2 small Basic Pearls, one each side, added a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals & adhered to the bottom RHS side of the card.

The whole piece was adhered to the Base Card - Whisper White with Snail Adhesive.

For my centre piece, I stamped the image 3 times onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and once onto another piece.  The last piece was punched using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  I realised that I don't use this punch nearly enough!  This large punched piece was adhered to the card with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

With the 3 stamped images, I cut around them at different areas of the stamp.  I did confuse myself a little here as I wasn't too sure where I was going, but the idea had been in my head since seeing this stamp set & finally got to do it!

The 3 images were then layered on top of each other using Stamping Deimensionals.  I applied a Basic Pearl to the centre to finish it off.

I love the Ruffled Ribbon from Stampin' Up!  Another item I don't use enough of.

I'm really happy with the card & the soft look it has.  I think this stamp set calls for a soft delicate look.

I love the colour combination you used for this card. The Concord Crush really pops against the Blushing Bride. Perfect.
