RockBottom Scrapbook Supplies Challenge



I have a yahoo group where members get discounts at products sold at my store, Wish On A Scrap. Members also get previews to the monthly contest kit before I release it to the general public. We regularly host contests and challenges for our members. My group is moderated by my dear friend Deb of Itty Bitty Ink Spots. She is an amazing person and I am so lucky to have her help me run the group. Last week, Deb put together a card sketch for members of the group to participate. Of course, I could not help myself and made a card for the sketch.

I flipped the sketch a bit so that it could work with my images. All of the stamps are from Stampendous. I used my Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Broken China for the images and inking the edges of the cardstock. The designer paper was picked up on sale at one of the majors. The cardstock and punches are Stampin Up. I used my copic markers and copic blender pen to color in the flower and then popped it up with 3D Sticky Squares. I accented the leaf of the flower with Stickles in stardust and patina. In the middle of the flower is a jeweled brad by Heidi Swapp.

Please do not forget to leave comments. I love to know that you stopped by. I love visiting blogs =) Feel free to join our group too. The link is on the right side of the blog. Have a great day!

Hugs,
Loreen

Fantastic Card. Love the Pizza box also, but the card is fantastic as it shows how you can turn a sketch a different way and make more than just 1 card.
