Double Challenge Card!

Yay! I got to do some stamping tonight! After seeing Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Challenge #13 and this week's Mojo Monday 97 sketch challenge, I was inspired to incorporate the 2 into another double challenge card. How do you like the little sneak peek of my card so far? Here are the Challenges so you can take a look at my inspiration:

I really like the color combo Dawn picked out. I translated these colors the the following Stampin'Up! colors: Certainly Celery, Real Red, Cameo Coral, and Whisper White. It's another bright and summery color scheme that makes me smile! Here's my full card - I hope you like it!
For the middle of the flower, I used a technique that Dawn had shared on her blog a little while ago about snipping a little wedge out of the scallops on the scallop circle and I even went a step further and did it to one layer of the flower folds flower. I used the second smallest flower on the Flower Folds die. For the flower center, I used the trio flower punch and created mini flowerettes with swiss dots in the center that I dotted in with Real Red marker.

{Recipe}:
All Supplies Stampin'Up!, except border punch
* Certainly Celery, Real Red, Cameo Coral, and Whisper White cardstock
* Certainly Celery, Real Red, Cameo Coral Classic Ink Pads, Real Red marker
* Circle Circus stamp set
* Flower Folds Bigz XL die cut
* Scallop Circle, Trio flowers, Modern Label and 1/4" circle punches
* Real Red Polka dot grosgrain ribbon (used the back side), Playground button, hemp twine, Signo Gel pen
* Fiskars border punch
Thanks so much for popping by! It's bedtime for me, so I'll catch you guys tomorrow. Bye for now ;)
