Moonlight Serenade....CCG #234

{ Color Combos Galore: Challenge #234 }
{ Cardabilities: Sketch #71 }

Edited 4/1/13: I'm a Featured Designer! Thanks Cardabilities for loving my card!

Hello friends! Squeezing this one in before the challenge closes,

Color and Inspiration...

(Please take one and pass it along)

The CCG Designer's Challenge: I chose Inspiration Photo #3 - Focus On Technique: Inked Edges. I was also inspired by Photo #1 to use a circle die. Photo #2 inspired me to add the flower and the pearls prompted me to use dimensional dots around my circle element. Photo #3 inspired me to use metal and a bird image. I also dry embossed the die cut pieces, used a sentiment with a semi circle flourish and my paper has the word "Post" on it:

Sketch Inspiration...
Sketch #71 @ Cardabilities

    The Sketch Interpretation
  • For the "two vertical strips": My first strip is the Post Card paper. Then for the second strip, I grouped the pin, circle and sentiment label to create the illusion of one
  • For the "two horizontal banner strips": I grouped them together and offset them
  • The "matting": It looks like the dotted paper was layered over different paper, but actually it was cut from the same paper. I cut out the journal frame and added dimensional dots.

I used Prima's Botanical, Pixie Glen and Script papers and an Avon Rose Romantique flower. Also used these Simon Says Stamp! beauties:

The CCG Color Combo Challenge will close on the 31st. So I hope you get to play, for more inspiration from the rest of the team, hop on over to their blogs and see!
