CCC02 -- Life is Wonderful!

I really like the sketch for the Creative Challenge Club this week.  It's simple but there are so many possible ways to interpret it.

I chose to use flowers instead of the stars and the Deco Labels Collection framelits instead of the Ovals Collection framelits, but the style of the sketch remains the same.

I am really warming up to Blackberry Bliss, one of the new In-Colors introduced in the new Annual Catalogue.  It compliments so many of the colours, especially Rich Razzleberry, which seems to be the same colour only lighter.  Along with the So Saffron and the Naturals White that I've used in the card, the Blackberry Bliss just seems to come to life.

My card has a lot of dimensions.  I've mounted the Rich Razzleberry on Dimensionals so that the Naturals White under the punched out flowers seems to be part of a shadow box.  I've also mounted the Deco Labels on Dimensionals which helps it balance against the other part of the card.  For the sentiment background I used the Work of Art stamp set but first off-stamped the Rich Razzleberry before stamping the ink.  Otherwise it would have been a bit too dark to show off the sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set which I stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink.

I'm so glad I embossed the Blackberry Bliss and the So Saffron.  The textures really add a lot as does the background stamping on the Rich Razzleberry with the Truly Grateful chevron.

Check out the other cards at the Creative Challenge Club blog.


  1. This is such a lovely card and I adore the colors. I'm a big fan of the Blackberry Bliss.

    1. Thank you, Ter. I really wasn't sure I'd like it but it has such depth. I also love that it compliments the Rich Razzleberry so well.
