Hello Lovely Challenge card.

Okay so I didn't think I would be back this quick! LOL! But you see I just joined a new Challenge Site and I wanted to get the first challenge in before it ends tomorrow.

It is a sketch challenge using the colours Soft Suede, Gumball Green, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.

Plus Paper Players have a challenge to use 3 of something so I thought this would fit nicely with that challenge too.

So I got to thinking modern-vintage? (is there such a thing?)

I also have a bee in my bonnet at the moment with wanting to used products and stamps that haven't been as well loved as others in craft room.

So I pulled out the Hello Lovely stamp set as my focal point. I really like this saying but have never used any of the other stamps until today!
Also, some embossing folders and sizzlets that I haven't used in ages and this is what I made.

(click on photo to enlarge)
 The squares on the side are from the Hello Lovely Stamp Set. I stamped one in soft suede and punched out with the 1 inch Square Punch and the smaller one in gum ball green that I hand cut. Then they were layered onto a punched out pink pirouette card using the Postage Stamp Punch.

It is a bit hard to see but I sponged the white doily with pink pirouette ink. I have layered it with Delicate Doilies Sizzlits .
I have also used the Floral Fusion Sizzlits layered together on a gumball green Leaf from the Secret Garden Framelits set.
Embossing Folders used:
Beautiful Baroque in Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette
Delicate Designs scalloped folder in Whisper White.

Then I finished it off by adding some lovely pearls on the card.

It is not my usual style but I think it works. And looking at it ... I have 3 squares, 3 flowers and three doilies! So I think I have both criteria covered don't you. lol.

Now I really do have to get on a make that Anniversary Card I have been putting off doing! Any excuse.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back again real soon. Vx
