This week's challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations, is to use the following sketch, and specific colours (Marina Mist, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake), on a card or scrapbook page.

One of my many new stamp sets that hadn't seen ink is "Language of Friendship".  It is a beautiful set, that co-ordinates with the Bird Builder punch, and Boho Blossoms punch.  Gotta love stamps that have complementary punches!

I had some time in my craft room last night, after preparing for this weekend's Christmas card class, and came up with a simple card (that I think is really quite sweet).  I stamped the flowers on the base card in Crumb cake ink, and sponged the edges.  I then stamped the flowers in Marina Mist ink on Whisper White card, punched them out using the Boho Blossoms punch, and adhered them to a panel of Crumb Cake card.  I put this card inside my Square Lattice embossing folder, and through the Big Shot, to creat the inlaid embossed panel.  The band across the middle of the card is two punched borders, one stacked above the other.

Stamps: Language of Friendship, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Card: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Cajun Craze
Ink: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Cajun Craze stampin' pads
Other: Marina Mist 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Bird Builder punch, Boho Blossoms punch, white gel pen, sponge dauber
