Sunny Challenges and Creations 07/11

Hi all, This week at Sunny Challenges and Creations, it was my turn to come up with the sketch and the challenge. I thought that we would go minimal stamping this time round, with the only stamping to be the sentiment. Any adornemnt could be used on the front of the card as long as it wasnt a stamped image. For my sample I have used Melon Mambo base, and given it a mat from the Flirtatious DSP. Using both the 1 1/4' and 1 3/8' square punches  I punched the larger in Melon Mambo and the smaller in Whisper White. The Lucky Limeade card stock was used to punch out the leaves from the XL 2 Step Bird Punch one for each Whisper White Square. I cut strips 1cm wide of the DSP and concertina folded them, joined them with Tombow, and when they were 'set' I made them into mini medallions. The base was the 3/4" circle which I put Tombow on to which adhere the medallion. The top of the medallion I placed a basic rhinestone in the centre of each. I made a bow using White Taffeta Ribbon and placed it on the lower left hand corner, and the Sentiment was from the set Afterthoughts, using only the word Thanks This was stamped onto Whisper White using Melon Mambo and then I punched out a Scallop Oval the same colour as the ink and mounted the sentiment onto the card front using dimensionals. I loved making this card and I hope you like it soo and that you will also play along with us at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week, we would love to see what you come up with for this challenge! Bye for now....
