...The Best Thing That's Ever Happened

This is my submission for this week's Sketch Challenge #233 and Color Challenge #223 at SCS. I started with a Ruby Red Cardstock base, then matted the focal panel with Basic Black Cardstock. The large Whisper White Cardstock panel was pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The Ruby Red Cardstock panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Leafy Branch Embossing Folder, and the Baja Breeze Cardstock panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder. The Whisper White Cardstock focal panel was stamped with one of the sentiments from Verve Visual's set "All About You" in Basic Black Craft Ink. It was then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. The flowers from the set "Grateful Elegance" were stamped in the same manner as the sentiment onto a scrap piece of white cardstock, then they were colored with with Copic Sketch Markers. Each bloom was cut out using CutterBee Scissors, then arranged on the focal panel using Dimensionals. Four Silver Jumbo Brads were added to complete the card.

That's it for now! Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be posting another card tonight for Monday's Clean And Simple Challenge at SCS, so until then....
