The card above was for a marble technique challenge in my card swap group. Therefore, I decided to use three challenges on this card. Technique was TLC218, colors came from CC275, and the sketch was SCS285. The marble tech. was fun so I had to do it twice (see card below). Colors are Barely Mellow Red - Barely Banana, Mellow Moss and Real Read from SU. Also use the same colors for the ink. Stamped sentiment is from Whimsical words then cut with oval scallop funch mounted on a larger oval punch. Also used the scalloped border punch on red and white to give it a little snap. The squares hold red corduroy button from SU, and two are threaded with very narrow white satin ribbon.
This second card is for a wedding or anniversary swap. I love the new Because I Care hydranga so stamped it in Baja Breeze and leaves in Certainly Celery. Was also making a wedding card at the same time for my daughter in her colors so just kept stamping, The triange is mounted on Chocolate chip. The sentiment here is from the new SU Ocassional Quotes and added a few rhinestones to dress it up a little bit more.
