Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #237

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back!! Hope you all had a fabulous New Years!! Here’s wishing you all the best in 2012 !!
It’s time for another Sketch Challenge from stamping 411…hope you’ll play along.
Today sketch:
….and my interpretation
sketches 236-237-238-1 003
Today's card features the Triple Treat Flower and it’s stamped in Baja Breeze. I used the large flower punch to punch it out. I stamped the flower twice and punched the second flower out using the five petal flower punch. I popped up the second flower with dimensionals and added the brightly colored Designer Brad. Love this color combo!! The polka Dotted square is 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 and the Tangerine Tango Mat is 2 3/4 x 2 3/4.
I then used the Happy Birthday form Happiest Birthday Wishes to stamp the background. I did that by stamping randomly on the white mat that is cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/4. I them matted that with a piece of Baja Breeze cut to 4 x 5 1/4.
The strip is cut to 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 and run through the Big Shot using the polka dot embossing folder. Easy Peasy and quick and fun.
I hope you enjoyed my share today and hope to see you back soon.

Love this, Lee -- it has a retro feel to it w/the color combination -- very nice!

Hi Lee! This is a great color combo. I wouldn't have thought to put those two together. Love that big Triple Treat Flower stamp and how cool it looks with dimensionals. This is just a fun card and the easy peasy part makes me smile. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Wow, that background is great, lots of stamping. When I saw yours I thought I'd do that too, but you're a bit more ambitious than me :) Very pretty, and that layered flower tops it off perfectly.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful card. I love the clean crisp look of it. And the flower is now on my "must get list".
