DCBD #131

Today is Diva Coffee Break Designs challenge day. Go to the DCBD blog by clicking here and see what the other Divas created. If you have time do this challenge along with us you can post it on your blog or in Splitcoaststampers and link it to the DCBD blog by signing up with Mr. Linky. We would love to see your creations too. We will try and even comment you.

This weeks card sketch was lots of fun. I am going to be helping a friend/customer make wedding invitations for her daughter's wedding. Also my daughter has been talking about colors she is kind of interested in for her wedding. Because of this, I thought this sketch was a great choice for a test wedding invitation. You can tell me what you think by clicking on the comments button at the bottom of this post. My biggest disappointment on this card is how the writing came out. The ink got a little bit too blotchy on the word "place". I didn't want to start over and decided to go ahead and keep it like it is. I thought about re stamping it on mellow moss card stock and covering it up, but I didn't want more of that color. I love the card except for that little mistake.


This is a list of the supplies used to make this card. All are SU! products.
Card stock: mellow moss, basic black, basic gray, shimmery white, basic gray DSP (hostess pack)
Ink: StazOn black
Marker: mellow moss and basic black
Stamp sets: To Have and To Hold and Hugs and Wishes (both are retiring July 1st)
Tools: eyelet border punch, texturz plate flourish (Big Shot), heart to heart punch
Accessories: a build-a-brad, a filigree designer brad, and 5/8" white organza ribbon
I hope you are inspired to go and create with us.
Have a great day,
Chris
