A Quintuplet Challenge~Cuttlebug Challenge (mellow yellow), Pink Elephant (bling), Timeless Tuesday (flowers), Cuttlebug Spot (bling), Sketch This

WOW! What a workout!!!!! I didn't think I could do it. At first, it wasn't my original plan to combine all of them into one card. Now that it's done. I'm glad it worked out that way!! I bought the large Damask stamp at HL yesterday on clearance! I was SOOOO excited to get it so cheap! They're the rage right now ya know!! :D I stamped the damask flourish in yellow and heat embossed it. The grey PP is Martha Stewart that was on clearance after Christmas. I colored in some of the design with a yellow SU marker to give it a little more depth. The large scallops were punched from a 1 3/8 circle punch. I simply layered them behind the grey panel and stitched over it. That also helps hold them in place.

To fit the CBC I ran a small part of the left side of the card through the CB using the Swiss Dots folder. I think I use the Swiss Dots more than any other CB folder!! I LOVE the versatility of it!

The bird is a rub-on. It's on yellow card stock. The prima is one I've had in my stash for a long time!! I just added a rhinestone the center of it. The "dream" sentiment and flourished border are from the same rub-on pack as the bird. I think that about covers it! :D TSMFL!!


Stamp: Stampabilities (Vintage Flourish)

Card Stock: Barely banana

Patterned Paper: Martha Stewart

Rub-ons: the Paper Studio

Prima: Creative Elements

Other: Cuttlebug, 1 3/8 circle punch, fibers, yellow marker, sewing machine, clear embossing powder
