Say it with...Hold A Candle
As you can see I rotated the sketch to fit my images. Isn't it wonderful you can interpret the sketch in different ways.
My card base is: Chocolate Chip layered with Cherry Cobbler and some Plaid Designer Paper (Cosmo Cricket-Mr. Campy line). I stamped the Balloons on Very Vanilla Card Stock and colored them with Prisma Color Pencils. The balloons and the strings were highlighted with a Clear Spica Glitter pen (doesn't show in the photo :o( though.) I added a Loopy Border at the bottom and double tied some Soft Green Satin Ribbon. The sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and I added 3 Chili Sprinkles underneath it.
For this card all the card stock & dp is exactly the same except I used Close to Cocoa for the card base. It's hard to tell in the scan but the cobbler layered were embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder and I added a strip done using a Chain Punch across the layer.
You can see how using the same papers but different stamps and layouts can really change up your cards.
Now remember you can participate in this challenge. We'd love for you to use the set, (Hold a Candle) but if you don't own it "yet" then feel free to use another set as long as it uses a Candle somewhere on the card. All challenge cards are eligible for the $20 voucher given away at the end of the month.
Be sure to check out the DT cards. I've seen them and they are fabulous!
