Friends 24-7 and Oval All
















This is a combination of a few challenges today, the first is the sketch layout from SCS, I made this a 4 1/4" square card. The second is our Creative Belli Challenge to use the colors of Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, and Cameo Coral. Please feel free to join in and substitute similar colors if you don't have these exactly, it a pretty combo for this time of year. The third challenge was for our Doubledog Dare Challenge (DDC) to use lots of flowers and a little bit of sparkle.
I started by stamping the brocade image in Celery on matching cardstock. The image was stamped in StazOn black and colored in with Copic markers R22 Light Prawn, YG03 Yello Green, and YG95 Pale Olive. This was mounted to the Saffron and Coral panel that was edged using the SU eyelet border punch. Added some saffron eyelets to this edge. Sentiment is from Occasions mini called Oval All, I cut out a flower from this image and added some Dazzling Diamonds. White satin ribbon is from the mini also. Silk flower is from my stash.
