Do you ever have WEEKS where the days just run into one another?  LOL… that’s my week this week!  Today’s card should have been posted on Wednesday as part of the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge SQSC 38!!

I’m going to change things up just a bit and share the challenge sketch first…SQSC38_on_Createdbyu_BlogspotLooking at it now, it brings to mind Oriental motifs!  But when I first looked at the sketch I honestly couldn’t wrap my head around it!!

I set about making a card from found scraps on my messy stamping table!  Lamenting the loss of luscious concord crush card stock, I paired it with pear pizzazz, melon mambo and whisper white card stock for my challenge card submission.retiring stamp sets triple treat flower and sincere salutationsTriple Treat Flower and Sincere Salutations are the two stamp sets used on today’s card.  The Triple Treat Flower was stamped onto Whisper White card stock, and punched using a fancy flower punch.  Both these stamp sets are retiring at the end of May as a brand new catalog will be released on June 1st!Glad rhinestone jewels carried to the new cartalong!Basic Rhinestones Jewels were added to the center antique brad, and to five of the stamped petals.

The original sketch had two banner features which were also repeated on the card… and a line of basic rhinestones jewels was added to one, while the other was left plain.  square lattice background painted with shimmer paint and dauberThe Square lattice textured impressions embossing folder was used along with champagne shimmer paint to add texture to the background of the card.SQSC38_on_Createdbyu_Blogspot Come play along with us!Take another look at the inspiration sketch.. and come play along with the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge Blog!  We’d love to see your creations!  You know the drill!
