...Sketch Challenge #217

This is my submission for today's Sketch Challenge #217 at SCS. I started with a Kiwi Kiss Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with Basic Black Cardstock {I added some Kiwi Kiss Cardstock to the smaller flower panels as well}. The patterned papers were from the Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper pack. The edges of the two large rectangular panels were pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The sentiment and flourish was the Sale-a-Brations stamp set called "Yummy". It was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for proper placement. The flowers were from another Sale-a-Brations set called "Botanical Blooms", and they were stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink on . Each blossom was colored with a Blender Pen and a Kiwi Kiss Classic Ink Pad. In true-Mercy-fashion...all of the layers are popped up using Dimensionals, then three Silver Brads were added to the green checked panel to finish the card off.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and don't forget to check out all of the wonderful things going on this week here at my blog and at the Stamps and Smiles Blog! Until later...
