This card has been created for the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations  It is not too late to link your creation.  You have until Saturday arvo, so why not have some fun & have a go!  You could be our “Ray of Sunshine”

For the inspiration of this card, I actually saw a dress in a shop window yesterday using these colours.  Amazing where your inspiration comes from.

The measurements for my card will make it easier for you.  Along with the sketch, don’t forget to use flowers on your card.

Base Card – Crumb Cake – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – score @ 4 1/8″ or 10.47cm & fold in half
Layer 1 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Very Vanilla – 5 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 14xm x 10.5cm
Layer 3 – Crumb Cake – 4″ x 1 1/4″ or 10cm x 3cm
Layer 4 – Very Vanilla – 4″ x 1 1/4″ or 10cm x 3cm

I stamped my background mage onto Very Vanilla using Crumb Cake Ink – I didn’t stamp off.  I stamped over the stop with another image using Cherry Cobbler Ink.

I cut this stamped piece at 1″ & 1 1/4″ which gave me 2 x 1″ pieces & 1 x 1 1/4″.  I adhered these pieces onto the piece of Cherry Cobbler & then to the Base Card – Crumb Cake, ensuring the larger piece went into the middle & smaller pieces either side.

With my Eyelet Border Punch, I punched the longer side of the piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, stamped my sentiment with Cherry Cobbler Ink onto Very Vanilla piece & run it through the Bigshot using the Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots.

Using a sponge, Cherry Cobbler Ink & a piece of White Taffeta Ribbon, I sponged the ribbon until it was the colour I wanted, let dry, adhered to the Embossed Very Vanilla Cardstock, tucked ends under, adhered to the punched piece of Crumb Cake & finally to the Base Card.

I punched 3 flowers with one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Set, adhered them to the Very Vanilla Embossed Cardstock & adhered a Basic Pearl on each.

Lastly, I adhered butterflies to the top of the card after they had been cut from the Bigshot & Embosslit Die.  I applied Basic Pearls to the butterflies & to the flowers.
