Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hey, it's time again for the fun Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411! I am super excited about this week because with a sketch this open, the sky is the limit - you can really do anything! I can't wait to see what all the participants come up with through the week. We have some great players over at the 411 and we'd love for YOU to join us!

Here is my card from the sketch:

Bright, huh? :) I told you in my last post that you'd need sunglasses! But I hope the cheerful colors will help brighten things for you - at least on your computer monitor!

The measurements for this one are really simple:
Card base - Bermuda Bay - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded to make an A2 card - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
Layer 1 - Crushed Curry - 4" x 5 1/4"
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 3 3/4" x 5"

I stamped the Medallion stamp with Crushed Curry ink on the Whisper White layer and then added my two pieces of Polka Dot Ribbon - Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry. The little bow was added with Mini Glue Dots and then I added the Rhinestone Ice Brad to the center of the Medallion. It does go through the top two layers.

Next, I turned my attention to the greeting:

It was stamped with the Well Scripted stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a Whisper White scrap. I punched it out with the Wide Oval Punch, sponged on some Bermuda Bay ink and then I stamped in the center for a final accent. The stamp is from Boho Backgrounds and it's inked with Crushed Curry, stamped off twice onto Grid Paper and then just overstamped onto the greeting. I popped this piece up with Stampin' Dimensionals and THAT was THAT!

Love, love, love simple cards with impact and this one fits that order - dontcha think?
