Sweet Indulgence....CCG #235

{ Color Combos Galore: Challenge #235 }
{ Unscripted Sketches: Sketch #204 }

Edited 4/7/13: My card made Top 3 at Unscripted Sketched and got Honorable Mention at Just Add Ink! So excited!!

Hello there! Hope your Easter was splendid and that you and your family had a wonderful day together. I think this was the quietest Easter for us as my little girl still had a bad cold, and I am still trying to get over mine. I managed to create a card last night. I tried to challenge myself and create it in 10 minutes, but it TOTALLY did not work out. I definitely need to plan a bit more. Well after much more than 10 minutes, this is what I made:

Color and Inspiration...

The CCG Designer's Challenge: I chose Inspiration Photo #1 - Focus On Technique: Dry Embossing. I was also inspired by Photo #1 mimic the arch frame by creating a scalloped edge. The trim inspired me to add dimensional paint and a circular element for the fountain.

Sketch Inspiration...
Sketch #204 @ Unscripted Sketches

    The Sketch Interpretation
  • For the "three horizontal blocks": I substituted them for banner strips. Or are they called flag strips?
  • For the "title/greeting": I moved it down a notch
  • The "bow/string": Because of the irregular shape of the scalloped edge, I found it difficult to add it in. I tried, but it wouldn't work for me. Being it was my first time playing with them, I was a little worried. But when I looked at the DT samples again, it really was okay to leave it out. WHEW!

I used My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market 6x6 Pad and these Papertrey Ink goodies:

This CCG Color Combo Challenge has ended. Tune in later today for the next Reveal!

I'm so glad that you didn't let the sketch stop you from sharing your card with us at Unscripted Sketches. Remember, it is just a starting point, you take it whereever you want to go! In this case, you definitely created a stunning card. I adore the scalloped edge with the offset color! Your colors are perfectly coordinated. Great composition!
