Splitcoast challenges inspire me- this card combines several- the color challenge for this week is Baja Poppy Cakes - really great combo ! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/color-combinations-f43/cc283-baja-poppy-cakes-08-10-10-a-t502047.html and the sketch challenge http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/card-sketches-f41/sketch-challenge-293-08-11-10-a-t502186.html
I had a lot of fun with this and I got to use the newprint DSP that I was hoarding. The base card is crumbcake, with basic black, then newsprint. I took the striped grosgrain and ran a sticky tape down the middle to pleat it. I layered poppy, baja blue. Punched baja blue with dotted scallop ribbon punch and layered it on the edge. Colored the image from Just believe with baja blue, poppy red, pear pizazz and old olive to stamp then added a few gems to add some sparkle then a antique brad from the new catalogue- they are SO pretty!
Happy hump day!
