S & S Sketch #1 and Midweek Throwdown Challenge #109 (Color)

Today's card is another post for my 2012 challenge to make a card using all of the S & S Sketches.  I used Sketch #1 and combined it with the Midweek Throwdown #109 Color Challenge - to use kraft, blue, and green.  I was completely surprised with how quickly this card came together when I approached it from the "I have a sketch and 3 colors to use" angle.  It was a bit like calling out to my mojo "heeeere kitty....mommy has a treat for you!"  If you have never tried cardmaking from this angle I highly encourage you to give it a's fun!

Built from this sketch:

I used all Stampin' Up! products including Night of Navy, Kraft, and Mellow Moss cardstock.  I know...I know...Mellow Moss was discontinued years I am a hoarder, ok?  LOL  I also used my Cuttlebug to dry emboss the NoN cardstock and added some silver brads.  The flowers are from an SU! set called "Close as a Memory."

If you are interested in joining in this "Use every S & S Sketch in 2012" challenge with me please be sure to let me know so I can visit your blog too!  The link to the sketches and a handy chart are on the S & S Sketches page.

Happy Stamping and God Bless You,

  1. Lovely card. I love the navy and kraft colors and the stamped flower image is so delicate and beautiful. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!
