…New Challenge & An Announcement

card_1416

ATS Badge Mercy BigAs you may have already guessed…I’m designing for the ATS Wednesdays Challenge Blog for All That Scraps!  Every Wednesday the design team will be bringing you new and inventive challenges as well as showcasing some of the wonderful images available at All That Scraps

Today’s challenge was to use the colors Aqua, Chocolate, and Kraft!  I chose to use C.C. DesignsSugarplum Spring Emma and a sentiment from AmyR Stamps Spring Sentiments for today’s card.  She was stamped in Black Ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  The sentiment was stamped in Black Ink as well onto Kraft Cardstock then punched out with 1” Circle Punch.  I also added a Melon Mambo Cardstock flower using the Trio Flower Punch.  I embossed the Kraft Cardstock panel with a floral embossing folder, and stitched the edges with chocolate thread.  I automatically reached for the Ooh La La For Her paper pack from My Mind’s Eye to go along with the fabulous color combo, and pierced the edges using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.  The focal panel was cut using a Classic Circle Nesties Die, and I added some Hawaiian Shores Saddle Stitch Ribbon around the card front.  The card was completed by adding the layers to the Hawaiian Shores Cardstock base.

That’s it for me today!  Be sure to head over to the ATS Wednesdays Challenge Blog and play along with us!  Every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered…but in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is one of our wonderful in-house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm EST with only one entry per person please! 

Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with some CHA stuff and another Verve Day Thursday.  Until then…
