All the Best

All the Best

I combined today’s SCS Sketch Challenge with Kristina Werner’s Color Inspiration Challenge #3.

When I went looking for an image for the long skinny panel, my eye fell on this retired SU stamp set, Haute Couture. I stamped the dress in black StazOn on Whisper White paper and colored it in with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen. “All the Best” was stamped on a Pumpkin Pie layer, and the (retired) French Script background in Rose Red ink on a Rose Red panel. Both panels were matted with a 1/16″ black border. The Orchid Opulence card was stamped with the Baroque background in Orchid Opulence ink. The only embellishment I used was a Pumpkin Pie Flower Fusion felt flower with a black vintage brad. Both the white panel and the flower were adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

    As of this week, I’m the proud owner of this exquisite card, as my sister was kind enough to send it to me for my birthday. Luckily, she did not miss my hints after she had posted the card on her blog … 😉 Thanks again, Sis!
