2 Challenges in 1 Card - Quint-Essential Flower

Today's post is a card created using two challenges...Freshly Made Sketches and Create with Connie and Mary

This is a great sketch by Tui Nathan and has so many possibilities.  I chose to combine this sketch with this awesome colour combo,

2012 Create Challenges-030

Midnight Muse and Gumball Green are two great new In Colors along with the ever cheery Daffodil Delight.

When I saw the Quint-Essential Flower single stamp in the 2012-2013 Annual Catalogue I just knew I had to add it to my it bad that I call my stamps a collection?  Anyway, I thought this flower would fill the square in this sketch beautifully.  I finished with a little sentiment punched out with the cutest little punch.

Stamps:  Lovely Little Labels and Quint-Essential Flower 
Inks:  Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green and Midnight Muse Classic Inks
Papers:  Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse and Whisper White Card Stock and 2012-2014 In Colour DSP Stack
Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Little Labels Punch Pack

Thanks for stopping and Happy Stamping!!!


  1. I like how you combined both challenges and the triple stamped flower is gorgeous! Thanks for playing CCMC!

  2. I think calling your stamps a collection is better than what I call it! (My stash, in case you're wondering)! I love how you've got all kinds of dots going on here - DSP, embossing and even dots on the stamp! Terrific take on both challenges!
