Well this week has been really crazy! I have been working on my Java Programming skills all week, trying to brush up because I applied for a development position. Well here is my card! I just created it today and was able to use the new stamps, papers and colors from Stampin' Up!, because they arrived yesterday! Not real sure if I am liking my card, I think all the Java has dampened my creativity... my head is in an endless loop!

So here is my card... late. Sorry!

To create the little flower at the top on the ribbon, I double stamped the small flower using Crushed Curry first, then an overlay on the edges with Melon Mambo. After I punched it out, I sponged the edges with close to cocoa then double embossed with UTEE. Finally I adhered this little embellishment using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The main image was created by sponging various inks on the stamp then breathing on it a bit to slighty moisten it. After that I sponged the edges with Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo and sprayed the image in Close to Cocoa.

I had a lot of fun playing with Madelynne's sketch. Thank you again for such a delightful challenge! I look forward to then next one ;)



  1. Very Pretty Lisa! I really like these new "In Colors" that Stampin' Up! has come up with this year. The technique you used for the flower sounds like a bit of work, but it's very cool looking. Looks to me like the DOS hasn't completly fried the creative part of your brain! Great take on the sketch!

  2. VERY pretty card, Lisa... I love that new paper and the new In Colors are very nice too! You def aren't fried! ;) :o)
