Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #229

This is my VERY oversized contribution to this weeks' Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411.  As usual, I played with the sketch, changing the dimensions of the elements and putting the sketch on its' side.  I didn't mean to make the card so big or mess with the elements so much, but the Greeting Card kid seemed to have a mind of her own and, like Topsy, she just growed!  Darned kid -- must be a teenager underneath her angelic looks....

Things that you can't see -- and there's a lot to this card!  The main image is sponged with Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa. I really wish that you could see that, but I couldn't get it to come through the photo. The two scallop layers behind the main image are cut from Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso using the Scallop Circles #2 die and both are sponged with Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso.  The scallops of the Cherry Cobbler layer are embellished with Basic Pearl Jewels.

There are two pleated layers behind the scallop circles.  One is made from a sheet from the Holiday Treasures dsp and is has a flat edge, which has been dipped into Champagne glass glitter.  The shorter, top layer is cut from Cherry Cobbler and the edge is trimmed with the Pinking Hearts border punch.

The sentiment is layered with Early Espresso, Cherry Cobble and Old Olive, again with the Basic Pearl Jewels in the scallops.  The central image is dusted with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

All products are SU!, unless otherwise noted.
