Swirly Mother's Day

Today is the last day of my week's holiday.  I haven't been in my stamp room as often as I would have liked, but have had a good week with my boys.

Here's a card I made using the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, the Anything Sizzix challenge at SUO Challenges and the color challenge at Color Throwdown.




My Big Shot got quite the workout with this card.  I used the Honeycomb EF; the Scribble Swirl  Sizzlet; the Floral Fusion Sizzlet and the large Scallops Framelit.

To mimic the oval shape in the sketch, I paper pierced three ovals.  The DSP comes from a really old pack called Spring Showers.  When I look at the grunged sheets in this pack, I realise Stampin' Up! was ahead of their time with this paper!



Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Something to Celebrate
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Spring Flowers DSP; Blush Blossom; Certainly Celery
Ink:  Basic Gray
Accessories:  Scribble Swirl Sizzlet; Floral Fusion Sizzlet; Large Scallops Framelit; Honeycomb EF; White Baker's Twine; Occasions Paper Piercing Pack; Basic Jewels; Jumbo Jewels

Cheers
Karren
