This morning I saw this week's JustRite Inspiration Challenge and thought I would enter a card. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. Here are the requirements: "The rectangle focal element can be any one of our different shaped stamps, or how about challenging yourself to stamp one of our normally round, square or oval shapes onto a rectangle for a change!" Here is the sketch to be used:
Instead of adding a bow to this card, I decided to create dimensional flowers to match the image. Using three different sizes of "Daisy" Punches, three flowers from each size were used to create each of the mums. Using the Flower Tool Kit, each flower was shaped to resemble a mum. The decorative border was created with the Martha Stewart "Embossed Scroll" border punch. The design paper is from the new "Botanical" 6x6" paper stack I just received from Joan's Gardens. The corners were cut with the new Spellbinder "Parisian Accents" dies. I had to search through some of my leaf dies and found this one by "BossKut" call "Daisy Leaves" that really matched the ones in the stamped image. They were also shaped with tools from the Flower Tool Kit. The Martha Stewart butterflies were punched and embossed with the Cuttlebug Textile Texture embossing folder. "Fruit Punch" Stickles was added for highlights to the flowers and butterflies. I love having a lot of different colors of Stickles to add a special finishing touch to my cards.
This is a fun challenge to enter. If you don't have your JustRite stamps, you can purchase them, and all products used to create this card, from Joan's Gardens.
