Welcome to our Saturday Challenge at Create with Connie & Mary! Saturday you ask? Didn't we just post a challenge on Thursday? Yes we did but this one is for our Spring Collection where I am one of the designers. You can still subscribe and see what we are up to! Go visit now to look at last week's Preview Projects that you can download for FREE!

Now on to this Saturday's Sketch Challenge:

My Card:

The flower you see is so pretty in real life. I have four layers that are separated by Stampin' Dimensionals:

And topped off with a Large Pearl Basic Jewel. Both flowers have coordinating punches. I used the Petite Petals stamp set for today which is the smaller flower, because that is the stamp set I featured in this week's project for the Spring Collection. I had so much fun with this flower stamp set.

The card is your normal sized card but with a 3/4" sliver cut off the right-hand edge. If you want to create this card, your base would measure 5 1/2" x 7 3/4" and scored at 3 1/2" on the 7 3/4" side. This is what it looks like when it's opened:

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango
  • Inks: Tangerine Tango
  • DSP: Kaleidoscope
  • Stamps: Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Tools: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Scallops Embossing Folder, Word Window Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch
  • Accessories: Large Pearls, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Candy Dots
