A Sketch, Some Color and Viola - A Merci Card

Sketches are my favorite! The challenge this week at Just Add Ink is a card layout that I thought was just too cool! The layout appears square, but I made mine the standard A2 size and paired the Cottage Wall DSP with the Chic Boutique Stamp set!
Wouldn't you know it - the color challenge at the Color Throwdown was a perfect blend of Barely Banana, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, and Pale Plum! The Cottage Wall DSP just went along perfectly with this challenge! Old Olive is one of my favorite Stampin' Up! greens - it's just the perfect shade and looks great with everything!
Speaking of colors, Barely Banana and Pale Plum are both retiring! Stock up now on these great colors and accessories to match - including the Cottage Wall DSP!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • Do you want a package of Designer Brads for FREE!?! The Filigree Brads I used in the center of my ribbon is part of the Stampin' Up! May Scrapbooking Promotion! Purchase a qualifying stamp set or My Digital Studio (118108) and get your choice of Designer Brads for FREE! There are {4} packages of Brads to choose from and one of which are showcased on my card today! On-Line orders DO qualify and the FREE brads are redeemable at check out!
  • Punches! Oh yes, the all fit nicely inside each other! The Scallop Oval, Large Oval, and Small Oval all coordinate beautifully to compliment each other! Use separately or together to create awesome accents to your projects! Each sell for $15.95 each and may or may not be in the next catalog! With the new punch design - who knows!!!
  • This chic card definitely needed some bling and I found the perfect jewel! The Circle Fire Rhinestone brads! Package includes approximately 80 brads, 4 colors, and 3 sizes! I used the largest size in the center of the Filigree Brad. Package sells for $10.95 and maybe retiring in June!
