Tulle Thanks

We have a national holiday here in New Zealand today, so I got the afternoon to stamp.  What's better than a day off work in the middle of the week?  A day off work in the middle of the week spent stamping LOL.

I decided to take part in the sketch challenge at Create With Connie & Mary for the Occasions Catalog.  I tell you, that design team is pretty talented - there's a heap of cool projects that only subscribers can get to see and download.

I also used the colors at a new-to-me challenge called Nacho Average Challenge.  Here's my card:

I stamped the En Francais background onto Crumb Cake cardstock using Rose Red ink, then layered that onto Raspberry Ripple.  Instead of the angled card panel, I opted to use the tulle ribbon and I quite like the effect.  The centerpiece was made using the doily sizzlet die and the new designer builder brads.

Here are the challenge details:

Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Made for You; En Francais
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake; Raspberry Ripple; 2012-14 In Color DSP
Ink:  Rose Red; Chocolate Chip

Edited to Add:  This card was chosen as the Top Nacho at Nacho Average Challenges!  Thanks, guys.

Happy Waitangi Day! Nice to get stamping time on your day off. :) I love the layered doilies, and the sentiment banner sticking out from the brad, Karren.
