This is my submission for yesterday's Sketch Challenge at SCS, and Kristina's Color Inspiration #14 Challenge . I started with a Kraft Cardstock (Layer 1) card base (6-5/8 X 6-1/2), and when it was folded in half it measured 6-5/8 X 3-1/4. All of the images are from SU's Level Two Hostess Set "Spring Solitude". Basic Black Cardstock (Layer 3 : 4-1/4 X 3-1/8) was stamped with the flower trio stamp in Whisper White Craft Ink, and was embossed with Stampendous White Embossing Powder. A piece of Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the center of the panel, and the completed panel was attached to the card base using Dimensionals. A piece of Whisper White Cardstock (Layer 2 : 2-1/2 X 1-7/8) was added beside the black panel, and was attached to the card base using SNAIL Adhesive. The focal panel (Layer 4) consisted of Basic Black Cardstock (4-3/16 X 2-3/16), Kraft Cardstock (4-1/16 X 2-1/16), and Whisper White Cardstock (4 X 2). The branch and bird images were stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto the white panel using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for placement. The bird was stamped again onto a scrap piece of white paper, cut out using CutterBee Scissors, and placed over the black bird using a Dimensional. The sentiment was stamped twice: once in Real Red Classic Ink onto white cardstock, and again in black on Real Red Cardstock. The red "thank" was punched out using the Small Oval Punch, and was matted onto black cardstock that was punched out with the Large Oval Punch. The black "you" was cut down using a Paper Cutter, and was attached to the ovals using SNAIL Adhesive. Black Brads were added below layer two and to the sentiment panel to finish off the card.
