Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #106

Today was my Stampin' on Tuesday fun day and I was joined by my two stampin' buddies, Sheri and Debby. 

Sheri and I started the morning with a 2 mile walk.  We're trying to combine some exercise with our weekly stamping routine.  Debby joined us for salad and chicken quesadillas and then we did some stamping.  Such a great day when you can share it with your friends!

My project for today is a sketch by the Paper Craft Card Crew Sketch #106 PCCCS06.   Here is the sketch outline:

Isn't this a great sketch.  There's a lot going on  with all the different elements so I really had to put my thinking cap on.  Make sure you check out all the great entries from the Paper Craft Crew Design Team and from the participants.  You can vote for your favourites later tonight and voting is open until September 2nd.  You can also check out PCCC on Facebook or on Pinterest.

Here's My Card:
I took my colour inspiration from the beautiful All Abloom Designer Series Paper pack.  I chose a design with flowers in soft sherbet colours that reminded me of chenille housecoats and soft slippers.  A real throwback in colour, and I think that's what's so great about these little designer paper packs.  

The All Abloom stack is like going back in time, mostly old fashioned prints and designs and soft colours - Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White.  With each paper pack you get 48 sheets of 4 12 x 6 1/2" designer paper, including 4 each of 12 double sided designs.  The colours and the patterns all mix and match.  Who can go wrong!

The card base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of Strawberry Slush In Colour cardstock scored at 4 1/2".  I've added a layer of Pistachio Pudding measuring 5 1/4" x 4" followed by a Whisper White layer measuring 5 x 3 3/4".  Unfortunately you can just barely see the spots on the Whisper White layer but they were made with Daffodil Delight and Pistachio Pudding Ink and the spotted image from Gorgeous Grunge, a retired stamp set.

I kept the inside of the card plain and simple just adding some small punched flowers and a sentiment from the Chalk Talk stamp set. 
Stamp Set:  Chalk Talk, Gorgeous Grunge
Card Stock:  Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight and All Abloom Designer Series Paper Pack
Ink:  Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Chalk Talk Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Delightful Designs Embossing Folder, 1/4", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower punch, dimensionals, trimmer, big shot machine.

Happy Stampin'!
