simply stampin' challenge week 46

Sketch challenge this week folks! So without further ado, here it is...


I have to admit I took one look at this and thought, woah, that's a bit full on! And in all honesty I struggled with this for ages. In the end I made it work for me but I had to jiggle things around a bit. Hope you like what I ended up with! 


Fresh Floral Birthday

Stamp Set: Fresh Vintage, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
DSP: Everyday Elegance
Punches: Bird, Scallop Trim Border
Accessories: Pearls

I used the colours in the Everyday Elegance DSP to colour in the Fresh Vintage flowers. I used some of the Poppy Parade DSP to do a the borders. I cut out the flowers and and placed them around the main floral image with some little sprigs of leaves cut from the Bird Builder punch to finish it off! I stamped the sentiment on a little banner and placed it just coming out of the bottom flowers. 

Please check out the other design team entries over at the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog! I look forward to seeing what you create. 

Happy Stampin',

Amanda xx

  1. I'd never have known that you'd struggled with this one, your cards always look so beautiful and effortless, it must just come naturally to you.
    I'm already thinking of CASEing this one!

  2. Very pretty take on the sketch! Love the little pearls! I know what you mean about looking at a sketch and drawing a blank at first, but I have to agree with Kelly, it doesn't look like you let it give you too much trouble!

    1. Thanks! I'm glad someone else also draws blanks at sketches. On the plus side it helps create cards/layouts that I wouldn't have done off my own back! x
