Truly Scrumptious 11 and Our Creative Corner

Finished up another card challenge.... well, actually two. I found Truly Scrumptious through another blog I was browsing and absolutely loved the sketch, as well as the idea of a creating a card using only white, black and one other color. And Our Creative Corner's challenge was right up my alley... they call it Triple Play. You must use at least three embellishments on your card. Now how hard can that be??!!! If you've seen any of my cards, you know I don't have a problem using embellishments.

For the Truly Scrumptious challenge, I chose pink as my additional color. I love this color combination; it's so girlie. For Our Creative Corner's Triple Play, I have used pearls, ric rac, a touch of glitter and flower with a jewel in the center. The stamp is "Willow Kneeling" by Whiff of Joy. She's stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics (R39, R34, R21, R20, R11, E00, Y28, Y26, Y21, Y28 and C1). "Just Because" is Endless Creations also stamped in Tuxedo Black. I used Cuttlebug's "Perfectly Paisley" embossing folder and Nestabilities standard and scallop circle dies. The DP is All My Memories and the CS is ColorMates Dark Pretty Pink and Bazzill. The flowers are Prima, the pearl is from Hero Arts, the ric rac is The Paper Studio and the black "rhinestone" is from Queen & Co.

I have to tell a secret; as you can see, my card is the opposite of the sketch. I had all the pieces adhered to the base card and when I went to open it, found that the fold was on the right and the card opened from the left. Fortunately, I was able to get the stamped image off and turned over. Luckily I hadn't stamped "Just Because" yet.

Even though it's a little backwards, I'm quite pleased with this card.

Hope everyone had a good Monday. Thanks for visiting.
Cheers, Judi
