hooked on challenges :)

Oh my goodness! I just can't help myself... I found another challenge... actually a whole blog focused on Stampin' Up! projects. What drew me in to the SUO Challenge 38, were the "parameters" - use two colors, plus a neutral or two. Here's what I came up with:
The Twitterpated Product Suite helped me see how gorgeous Blushing Bride and Riding Hood Red look together. Basic Gray and a touch of Whisper White are the perfect "neutrals" to pair with that combination.
The card base is Riding Hood Red card stock. I added some details to the layer of Blushing Bride card stock by stamping the large floral image from Bordering on Romance in Blushing Bride ink, and then distressing the edges.
The two layers of Twitterpated DSP are matted with Basic Gray card stock. And check out the large layer on the left... it's fabric!! I think the Twitterpated Fabric is my favorite so far (well, maybe a tie with the Spice Cake fabric). I simply used SNAIL adhesive and wrapped the edges of the fabric around a layer of Whisper White card stock, then adhered that layer to the Blushing Bride card stock with a liberal amount of adhesive.
After tying on some Basic Gray Satin Ribbon, I went to work on the focal point. I stamped the images (also from Bordering on Romance) in Basic Gray ink onto Whisper White card stock. Then I colored in the images with markers: Pear Pizzazz, Lucky Limeade, Blushing Bride, Regal Rose, and Riding Hood Red. I distressed the edges, and sponged them with Blushing Bride ink. Then I adhered the pretty focal point to a layer of Riding Hood Red card stock, which I snipped out after dry embossing it using one of the Designer Frames Embossing Folders. Because of all the bumpy layers, I needed a "double-stack" of Dimensionals to attach the focal point to my card.  At the last minute, I added two Blushing Bride Twitterpated Buttons to push my card over the top  :}
By the way, do you recognize this card layout? I revisited a previous Mojo Monday sketch, and "tweaked" it  :}  So fun!!
Thanks for checking in today - hope you have a wonderful weekend, with lots of time to stamp!!
