Today's Challenge at Caardvarks was to use 5 embellishments on a card. Whoo! I don't know about you, but I don't know if I've EVER put that many things on one cardfront! I had some help though.... I got some new toys from Eclectic Paperie & All That Scraps! :) I don't think I've seen a cuter stamp set! The Coffee and Tea set is packed full of retro images and perfect sentiments! I also got to drool on Basic Grey's Infuse paper pack! It's WONDERFUL! So... here are my 5 embellishments. Hopefully they all count. I didn't want to add anything else because I was afraid it would start looking gaudy.
1. Brown Brads
2. Ribbon (Flirty by Stampin' Up! & cream rick rack from Crate Paper Baby Bee Collection)
3. Zig Zag stitching by sewing machine
4. Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the teapot image off of the oval
5. Sakura Stardust pen to add glitter to the teapot and steam
And.... if all of those don't count, I also paper pierced the olive oval and used my Word Window punch (top left). Oh... and I punched teeny holes around my scalloped oval and distressed my CS with Sahara Sand ink by SU. I just love how it all turned out! :) I was going to just do a straight stitch -- but now I'm really glad that I went with the zig zag. I think it flows nicely with the rick rack.
This sketch comes from Julee at Poetic Artistry. She's starting a new round of Blogger Bingo today! Have I said before that I LOVE sketch challenges! So inspiring and fun!
