Sunny Challenges Week 6 sketch and Card Share

 This week at Sunny 'challenges and Creations  Vicky has supplied the sketch for us all to follow, and the only stipulation is that a wheel has to be used on our creation. Last week for Kris's sketch as my second card I used Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel (maybe I should've saved it). I decided that I would use the new In Colours this week. I stamped several of the large and small flowers from Vintage Vogue (you can never have too many on hand)  in the Calypso Coral which was the same colour as my card base. I also stamped some leaves using the new Lucky Limeade ink. The base was topped with Whisper White that was run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Using Basic Black Classic Stampin Pad I rolled the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel across another piece of Whisper White, which was then matted onto a piece of Basic Black. The flower was placed at the top left hand corner of the wheeled section and the leaves were placed behind it using Tombow adhesive. A small rhinestone brad was placed in the centre of the flower and it was attached to the card using dimensionals. The sentiment was from Well Scripted and once again stamped in the Calypso Coral and backed onto cardstock of the same colour. I used a length of Pear Pizzaz ribbon to go through slots on either side of the sentiment and attached that behind teh wheeled section of the cardfront. I am loving the new colours and I am really pleased with the way this turned out. I would love to hear what you think too. Bye for now


  1. Your card is lovely Gwen. It's kind of funny but until I saw your sample, I was going to do something very similar with these stampsets. Great minds must think alike.

  2. Hey me too....... I love this card Gwen especially using the new In Colours. This wheel is one of my favourites
