Two weeks just fly's by… Welcome to the Scrapy Land Challenge #37. The theme for this challenge is our favorite one “Any Thing Goes”. Need to use brand of low profile or steel ruled die Scrapy Land sells. Scrapy Land has over 40 brands of dies.  You can see them all here. Please link your project back to this Scrapy Land Challenge Blog.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project. The challenge closes on Sunday March 13, giving the Designers time to choose the Winner and the Top Three.  The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Scrapy Land store. Please limit the number of entries to five.
 The embossing folder is from Sizzix called flowers and bows string set. The paper used was all pearl paper colors cream and a light peach. I had a hard time cropping these pictures as the lighting was hard to work with. It kept turning the cream color to a light green but I finally got it to work right.
 Sentiment on the outside is from Hero Arts. Here is a close up of one of the arrangements. This is made with all corners and the tag in the center.
 Here you can see one of the corners. Sue Wilson dies cut out really well. Here you can see I add a large cream pearl and a medium size deeper peach pearl. Sue Wilson has a lot of dies and if you would like to check then out you can look here.
 The die set I used to make my card is called Sue Wilson French Collection border, corner and tag. By playing with the pieces from the set you can do so many different layout. Viva peal pen to add some pearls colors salmon and cream.
The inside I used the border die and that die is 7 1/2 inches long the corners. For the sentiment and the is from Stampin up Feel Good stamp set and it is only one of the stamps. Used white embossing power with Versa Mark ink and heat set the power to add the sentiment, do you know if they make a cream embossing power? Never thought about it tell now. Used Creative Memories punch for the corners on the sentiment.
I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by, love to hear your comments on the card. Have a wonderful week. Have to tell you as of yesterday the temp here was 63 degrees and we had had no snow and today we got 5 inches of snow, really pretty all beautiful white but by the week end it is going to be near 50 degrees again. This is why we live in Wisconsin you can wake up in the morning and it can be 70 degrees and by night you can get snow. You never know what the weather is going to be. Only in Wisconsin you can have 3 seasons in one day.

Angela said...

This card is really beautiful!
Sadly we have to exclude it from the draw at Kleuren met Potloden, because there is no coloured image on your card (which by the way has to be coloured with pencils, since we are a pencil challenge blog)
I'm so sorry.

Angela said...

Een prachtige kaart Ria!
Helaas komt deze kaart niet in aanmerking voor de prijs. Het thema van deze februari challenge is embossing. Jij hebt gelinkt naar de februari challenge van 2013.... dat is al even geleden ;)
