Another Sunny Challenge!


It is about time I finished this card! I started it days ago but have had too many interruptions. There is still plenty of time to play though in the Sunny Challenges and Creations 008/11 this week. We had to use the sketch above plus the colours of SU Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze.

It is a good challenge and of course my first thoughts were to make a male themed card but then remembered the Beau Chateau DSP so worked around that. The lined circle behind the flower is the back side of the blue paper I used. The scalloped circle is from the SU Pennants Die - I am not fussed on it but like the scalloped edges. I have stamped the flower from SU Creative Elements three times and the centre is put up on Dimensionals as is the wording.

I love the punches as you can see - I have used five SU punches here!

Jean, this is wonderful - I just love the colors and the like the shape your sentiment is on (is that a SU punch as well?)

Hi Janet, I have used the SU Decorative Label punch for the wording. Just punched twice! Thank you for your kind words everyone!

Jean, another stunning creation. Love the way you have used your focal elements. This flower is one of my favourites. You can get so much dimension with it.

Jean this card is gorgeous. Took me a while to work out how you did the sentiment punch - very clever!!!

Excellent detail on this one! Love this color combo. What a fun thing to do to use the lined back of the paper you used on the front. Very clever. . . hope you are well! Best, Curt
