...Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #30, and Inspiration Challenge #110

This is my submission for a couple of challenges: this Weekend's Sketch Challenge from Beate, and today's Inspiration Challenge at SCS. The inspiration piece can be seen HERE, and Beate's sketch can be seen HERE. The card base is Tempting Turquoise that measures 6-5/8" X 6-1/2", and when folded to open at the bottom is 6-5/8" X 3-1/4". The edges were sponged in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink with a Sponge Dauber. The vertical orange panel on the left side is Pumpkin Pie cardstock that measures 3-1/4" X 1-1/16", and a piece of designer paper from BasicGrey's Stella Ruby 6X6 Paper Pad that measures 3-1/4" X 15/16" (the edges were sponged in chocolate also). The two horizontal strips are also from the Stella Ruby collection with the top strip measuring 4-3/8" X 7/8", and the bottom strip measuring 3-1/8" X 3/4". The Photo Corner Punch was used to punch out two pieces of the BasicGrey paper, and the layered corner pieces were attached to each other using SNAIL Adhesive. All of the panels were attached to the card base using the same adhesive.

The flower, from the set "So Much", was stamped in Basic Brown Classic Ink onto Watercolor Paper. It was then watercolored in Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink with Aquapainters. Once dry, the bloom was cut out with CutterBee Scissors, and a 3/16" hole was punched in the center using the Crop-a-dile. A Jumbo Antique Brass Eyelet was placed into the punched hole and closed using the Crop-a-dile again. A Turquoise Rhinestone Brad was added to the center of the jumbo eyelet. The Scalloped Circle Punch was used to punch out a scrap piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock, and the flower was attached to the scalloped circle using Dimensionals. The flower-circle combo was then popped up off of the card base using Dimensionals once more. The sentiment, from the set "Absolutely Fabulous", was stamped in Basic Brown Classic Ink onto the card base to finish it off.

That's it for today! Thanks for checking out my card, and please feel free to leave a comment! I have a bunch of laundry to catch up on, so I will see you all some time tomorrow. Until then.....Hugs ~ Mercy
