simply stampin' challenge week 55

Simply Stampin' Challenge time again! This week is a sketch challenge. 

Deliciously For You

Stamp Set: Creatively Yours, I {heart} Hearts
Ink: Pool Party, Calypso Coral
Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Basic Grey
DSP: Domestic Goddess
Punch: Scallop Edge, Crop a dile
Accessories: White Emboss Powder

Well as usual with the sketch challenge I ended up doing some jiggling around to make it work. This whole card came about because I wanted to use the Deliciously Made For You sentiment which I was borrowing from my downline. I hought it would make a lovely card paired for the domestic goddess paper. I cut strips of the paper and punched some scallop border to edge the middle panel and adhered it all down. I white embossed the sentiment on some basic grey cardstock and added hearts to fill in the blank space. But when I added it to the card it just didn't really stand out and work. so I thought I'd try making some scallop edge and add it and while I was punching away the thought came to me that I could use the crop a dile to make holes in each scallop which would then match the scallop trim in the dsp! Brilliant idea I thought! And doesn't it work well?! I added some daffodil delight underneath to help the detail show up more as its quite a busy dsp and I wanted my trim to stand out!

I hope you liked this card! Let me know what you think and leave me a comment! Then head over to the SSC blog to see the other DT entries and get creating yourself! Can't wait to see what you come up with! 

Happy Stampin',
