For the WICKED Birthday Girl

My Great Swaps friend Carolina is this month’s hostess of the WICKED demo challenges on SCS. Today happens to be her birthday, and I decided to make a card for her using her WICKED color combination and sketch. I guess you can say that this was quite the challenge for me!

I used the Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Die on Bella Rose Designer Series Paper, sanded the raised images and then sponged Tangerine Tango ink over them. The images along the bottom edge are from the Boho Backgrounds set and were stamped with Tangerine Tango ink on Whisper White card stock. The Oval All sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on Bashful Blue card stock and punched out.

The flat bow was created with two pieces of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and several mini glue dots. First I took a 5″ ribbon and glued the ends together. Then I wrapped a short ribbon around the center and attached the ends in the back. This bow was mounted on top of the ribbon that was wrapped around the edges of the Bashful Blue panel.

Thanks for stopping by!
