A CCEE Supply Challenge


Is it the beginning of a new week already? Yikes how time is flying!! Well, as a new week begins, I have another CCEE challenge card to share with you. Dawn sent us supplies to use this week. Included was this beautiful dp by Heidi Grace, and a Basic grey brad. Where's the brad you say? Well, I couldn't make it work on the outside, so I included it on the inside of my card shown below.

First, to explain the outside. I used one of the new JustRite 2 1/4" x 3 1/16" Oval images from the Thinking of You set. I stamped it with two colors: Espresso (Ranger Adirondack Dye Ink), and Pink Passion (SU!). I colored over part of the Pink Passion stamped piece with Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip (SU!). They're matted with Birchtone Dark, along with Crabapple Medium and Light (Prismatics). Behind the image, I used one of my new Spellbinders Pendants, Fluer de lis that I got from Stamper's Dream. Isn't it gorgeous!! Love this pendant. I also punched the corners with a Fiskars Corner punch, and added some Mini Multicolored Rhinestones (Zva Creative) to the centers of the flowers.

For the inside, I used the new Spellbinders Fluer de lis Borderabilites shape and added the Spellbinders Sunflower Set Flower and the required brad Dawn supplied. All the edges are ink distressed with Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink).

Finally, I added Pink Satin Ribbon (May Arts)

You won't want to miss seeing what the other girls have come up with!! Head on over the CCEE Stamper's Blog.

There's no way you were gonna let you-know-who buzz you about the brad, huh, Tosh? Wow, this is gorgeous! I love how you finished off the inside, too. Like Michelle said, the inside could be a card itself!
I hope you're having a terrific summer! Hugs

Mothermark said...

Darn it! I was gonna buzz you cuz on the CCEE blog there was no brad...well not really...cuz I lost my brad and I don't have it inside our outside but its in my stamp room somewhere! I know that much!

Your card is gorgeous of course!
