Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge 28

The weekend at last and time to post my card for the Fresh Batch challenge over at Stamps and Smiles. This little card is going into two challenges this week as stamp TV have a red and brown Colour challenge so this one fits the bill.
  • Stamps: Timeless Treasures by Theresa Momber for Gina K Designs
  • Card: GKD Soft Sand , Bazzill Chocolate, White Card, dp Doodlebug Designs - ladybug picnic.
  • Embellishment: 2 Kaisercraft red gems and some ribbon.
I used the soft sand for my card base. Then added a layer of white card followed by the chocolate then the dp. I used my Spellbinders Nestabillities to cut all the scalloped and plain circles.
The first chocolate scalloped circle was cut and then cut again to reveal the dp underneath. Once the image was stamped onto the white card I sponged around the edge whilst it was still in the die. Attached it to the chocolate circle and added this element using foam tabs to pop it up. Tied the ribbon and added the gems and that was it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit, hope you have a great week end.
Till next time.......
