Hello Bouquet


It's time for another awesome challenge from SugarPea Designs and this week we are starting something new and exciting in our challenges!  You can choose to use either the sketch or the inspiration photo or you can combine both!  How cool is that?



I decided to sort of mix it up but I focused mainly on the photo as I was drawn to that gorgeous cushion and the peach-colored chair.



I stamped and die-cut heaps and heaps of the cute little flowers from Funky Wreath Spring Addition and arranged them into a bouquet with the help of Press n Seal.  I then put the bouquet to one side while I worked on the rest of the card.  The angled panel was die-cut with the biggest die from Notebook Journal Card and lightly sponged with Tumbled Glass ink.  The sentiment comes from Pineapple Paradise - love the font on those sentiments!



To finish off the card, I used a Sizzix embossing folder on a strip of Melon Berry cardstock and adhered it all to a white card base.

Thanks for visiting!


Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

  • Create a new card or project using the sketch provided.
  • SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.
  • Upload to your blog or other Online Gallery using Keyword: SPDSS56 so that we may check out your beautiful work.
  • One randomly selected winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs store. However, if the winning entry features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the prize to $50!
  • We will announce our Main Winner at the end of each month.
  • The more times you play along during the month, the better chance you have of winning!
