CPS104 Card Sketch Challenge

Lately I've played several challenges and find that they really do help to think outside of my comfort zone. This sketch, from CPS, is fun because of the many possibilities you can use to make a card, just check out their blog site and see some. You'll notice that the Raspberry Fizz collection from Papertrey Ink continues to be a favorite of mine; I LOVE the hot pink color that is a great combination with just about any other color you want to use, especially lime (is that still a color? :-D, black, and white.) It was fun making the flowers contributed by a sweet person, MissCutiePieGoes80; her blog info is listed in the previous posting. The paper was adhered to lightweight cardboard, embossed with the Cuttlebug, and cut out. They make a wonderful accent to any project and there are several sizes to use, too. The main image has a SU! rub on that was finished off with the flower. The flower has a small circle punch adhered with a half pearl. The sentiment is also a rub on; sometimes it's much easier using rub ons instead of stamping because you don't have to clean :-D Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy what you see.

Stuff Used:
Stamps: Everyday Blessings (Papertrey Ink) on the inside sentiment
Paper: Raspberry Fizz dp and cs, Select White (Papertrey Ink), black (scrap)
Ink: Worn Lipstick and Scattered Straw (Ranger), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Ribbon, rub ons, CB ef, pearl, circle punch, Rectangle Nesties, floral template
