sketch challenge #17

So I did get to stamp for a minute or 2 this afternoon. I was able to play around and get a card done for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I LOVE doing these. So a BIG THANKS to Beate for taking the time to post these on her blog...helps me do more with my card making! :) I wanted to use my Cutie Pie paper and so I started there, that chose my colors for me! I used my new Giga Scallop Punch (have I said how much I love this is the most fun!) I used the flower from the Priceless set and my sentiment if from the Paper Tray set. I stamped the flower on the white circle. I stamped another flower and cute out the middle part of it and stuck it on top of the other flower...just to give it a little dimension. I also did tiny little dots of stickles on the dots around the flower.
what's in it?...
stamps...Priceless, Paper Tray and Borders & Corners, circle (from Papertrey ink)
paper...bashful blue, rose red, certainly celery, Cutie Pie DSP, whisper white
ink...bashful blue, rose red, certainly celery
accessories...brads, celery ribbon, crystal stickles
other...giga scallop, 2 in. circle & photo corner punches, circle and oval cutter (CM), paper piercer, sponges
Here is a pic I took this afternoon. While I was stamping, within a matter of minutes the sky went black, the wind started blowin', thunder was boomin', and the rain came down! This was as far out as I could get without getting soaked...we had a small river running down the road in front of the house and a small lake sitting in the backyard. This was probably over about 15 minutes time...maybe less. Of course it's all gone now but you gotta love those Texas rainstorms!...they are my favorite!

AWESOME card, Tara. I love that you used Cutie Pie with Priceless. It looks fantastic.
We had a horrid downpour here in Florida as well. It's still raining, but not like it did before.
Have a great week. Hugs and smiles

Love your card! I really like the way you used the scalloped circle but cut it off and the use of the Cutie pie paper. TFS!
