Happy Friday!

Another Friday brings about another wonderful Blogger's Challenge! This week's challenge is to create a card using the layout of the puppy card on Page 21 of the Stampin' Up Occassions Mini.

I have always loved the Stampin' Up set Living Large (retired) and thought that it would work well with this sketch. I added the sentiment from one of the stamps from the Happy Hellos set (retired) as well. The color scheme was actually inspired by Stampin' Up's Afternoon Tea Designer Paper. I just received a pack from my demonstrator. It's so beautiful! I didn't use any of the paper on this card because I was afraid to cut into it just yet...LOL! At least I used the colors (Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Chocolate Chip)! That has to count for something...right? The Groovy Guava card base has the Stampin' Up Paisley background stamped onto it. (Not very sunny here today, so I can't seem to get the photograph just right. Please click on it for a better view.) I added some scallops to the Chocolate Chip layer with my Stampin' Up Corner Rounder (without the guard), some Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Star Dust Stickles for sparkle, and a button that matched the Wild Wasabi perfectly.

I hope you have a chance to check out the other challenge cards. You can find the links to their blogs by clicking on the Blogger's Challenge logo on the right side of my blog. Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D

Very cute. I hardly ever use buttons on my cards but love how they look on your card. I also liked the scalloped edge.
