Sunny Challenges Week 39

May 6, 2012

Well this week at Sunny Challenges and Creations Vicky set the challenge and believe you me it had me thinking for quite a while.  She gave us this sketch and the colour combo Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo.   I had to think about this one for about two days before I had a clue and I’m still not sure about what I have done.

Anyway, I started with a card base of Tempting Turquoise and then added a layer of Soft Suede to the top.  I punched strips of Melon Mambo card stock using the Lace Ribbon Border Punch I threaded the punched card stock with Very Vanilla 1/8″ Tafetta Ribbon and added a couple of Tempting Turquoise Glimmer Brads to each piece.  They are then attached to the sides of the Soft Suede card stock.  I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using two of the stamps from the Delicate Doilies stamp set using Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo ink.  I also stamped one of the flower centres from the Mixed Bunch stampset using Soft Suede ink.  I sponged the edges of this piece using Soft Suede ink and then added it to the centre of the card front.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Easy Events stampset onto Very Vanilla card stock using Soft Suede ink and punched it using the Word Window Punch I attached the greeting to a Tempting Turquoise Modern Label and then to the card front using dimensionals.

Well, as I said, I am not convinced about the results, but I would love to know what you think.

You will certainly need more inspiration so please visit Vicky and Gwen and our Guest Designer for this month Tanya.  Once you have created your card, scrap page or 3d item, pop on over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  As always I look forward to seeing what you can create.

Bye for now, Kris.

    A great card Kris considering the wild colours. I had a hard time too. Love the use of your Glimmer Brads with the Punch….The Delicate Doilies set really gives this card a soft finish.

    Love your card Kris. Unfortunately I won’t be able to join in this time as I don’t have those colours. I have a tempting turquoise stamp pad but not the other colours.
    Have a good week
