2S4Y - Kazan's Sketch 57 and Color Cue {6}

This is really exciting for me! Not only did I combine two challenges into one card, but the 2S4Y challenge winner gets to become one of the Design Team and the Color Cue {6} colors are really stunning.


I incorporated an embellishment that I've seen around lately and really wanted to try. I went a step further and created a sheet of them to give to a crafty friend who's lost her mojo (idea from Melissa Bickford who's been creating embellishment sheets galore!).



I impressed the Kraft cardstock with Spellbinders Impressibilities: Circles, added a strip of Berry Sorbet Bitty Box basics bordered with Fiskars Upper Crest punch and attached a strip of lace by taping the ends on the back of the Kraft. I then matted it on Dark Chocolate and Berry Sorbet cardstocks. The embellishments are just circles with the edges distressed with Tim Holtz's tool and damaged a bit further with my finger/thumb nail. Buttons adhered with hot glue gun. The focal piece has a strip of lace tied into the button (large holes, tiny tweezers). ;)


The interior is stamped with PTI's Studio Style stamps (Raspberry Suite): the ribbon spools in Versamark Dazzle (Frost) ink and the sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink.

I really adore those funky embellies! They look like flowers to me, so that is what I am going with LOL!

It's a good life!
