SC 028/12…

Another new challenge is up & running over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  Wouldn’t you think that if I had to set the challenge, I would have some sort of idea on what to create – Nope, No Way, Not me!!!!!!

For this challenge we had to use the Technique – Faux Silk. I love techniques, so this was a great challenge for me.  The sketch is fairly easy too.  So why not join us?

Now don’t be like me & continue tossing out your little scrunched ball.  I did it about 3 times before I realised what I was actually tossing out!

Measurements –
Base Card – Calypso Coral – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in middle & folded in half

Layer 2 – Calypso Coral – 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ or 9cm x 6.5cm

Adhere to piece of Calypso Coral & then to Crumb Cake piece
Adhere the whole lot to the Base Card – Calypso Coral

I missed a flower centre on my card & didn’t notice it until I went to post the card.  It is now driving me crazy, but too late to fix as this went in the post on Friday.

Why not head over to Sunny Challenges & Creations & check out the gorgeous cards Kris & Shirley have created. 

We would love for you to join us.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
