I still have time to participate in this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:
I was looking at the samples by FMS' Design Team for quite some time before it dawn on me what was it that is different to what I'd normally do. It was the layering which I don't usually do.
So that's like a challenge within a challenge for me today. And here's the end result:
I remember that I had a lot of Tempting Turquoise "off cuts" from a project a year ago, so that's the borders you see on the layers. Since the Wild About You stamp set was out, it was just too handy to use it, even though it is retired. The other thing I had in mind was that this card could be a "thanks for your support", or just simply "Hello" or perhaps "Welcome Baby" card. I used the 2013-14 In Colours because then I didn't have to think too hard about colour combination. I haven't got any 2013-14 In Colours DSPs, so I made my own patterned paper, by stamping the flower image from the stamp set in Strawberry Slush all over a piece of Whisper White card stock. I also wheeled Stampin' Up!'s Gingham wheel in Crisp Cantaloupe to make the other piece of patterned paper. I then added the little Tempting Turquoise flower button with the wee layered banner. All in all, it was a fun card to make/sketch to use.
