Blogger's Challenge #51 and more!

A Triple Play!


So I am a bit behind on a few challenges so I combined three in one here!

1. Blogger's Challenge -- Turquoise, Pink and Green Galore
2. This weeks sketch at 2sketches4you.
3. Great Swap Girls use your crimper.

So now that you know the challenges, here is my card.




And here is a close up of the details.




And of course the sketch.





Now for the details.

Stamps: One of a Kind
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Pixie Pink, Green Galore and Whisper White
Other: Small oval punch and crimper for leaves. 5 Petal punch for multicolored petals, BoHo Blossoms punch for small turquoise flower on large flower. Cuttlebug pin dot for white layers, which has the dots colored in Pixie Pink and Tempting Turquoise markers. Martha Stewart's Doily Lace punch, K&Co. felt flowers. White Brads. Markers were used for large flower and other details. I think that is is!

I love that scalloped paper in the back. I may try this with a large corner punch and my two sizes of mini hole punch. Maybe its more work but can't do anything Martha.
You actually got the neon colors to work really well. When I used them a while back, I said never again. So its in how you use them and you did it right!
