simply delightful....

hello friends!!   if you live here in the states hope you are enjoying a day off for Veteran's Day!  i have  card that i made for a couple of challenges:  the craft's meow monthly sketch challenge and the current dynamic duos color challenge:  sahara sand and cherry cobbler.

 

in order to get this card completed i really had to search through my stuff to find something close to sahara sand (note to self:  buy some sahara sand cardstock!).  finally i found one last scrap of pti soft stone cardstock.  soft stone is lighter than sahara sand, but still works fine and shows up nicely against the white, i think.   i used the craft's meow set simply delightful.   the medallion was die cut using spellbinders plain circle dies and then matted with a second plain circle cut from soft stone.  the flags were cut with my well loved and well used my favorite things fishtail flag stax dies.  the background was embossed using the stampin up! fancy fans embossing folder.  the little glitter dots up in the corner were originally white, but i custom colored them using a dark red copic marker. 

thanks for stopping by.

cardstock:  pti: white & soft stone; stamps:  the craft's meow; dies:  spellbinders plain circles, my favorite things fishtail flag stax dies; ribbon:  pti soft stone; embossing folder:  stampin up!; ink: cherry cobbler

Another beautiful card! I had to use soft stone too. I'm thinking I might have to invest in some Stampin Up supplies :) Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week.
