Classic Sketches BC95

The challenge last Friday for the Blogger's Challenge was a color challenge: use Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Sage Green and Sahara Sand to make your card. I was a little "iffy" the Sage with the Artichoke but I'm happy now with the way these went together.

For this card I used my new Classic Sketches set from the Spring-Summer Catalog. As I mentioned yesterday, I really like the Classic and Vintage styles so this was one of the first sets I ordered.

I paired the largest image from the set with a saying from the Sense of Time set I used yesterday. The image was stamped in Artichoke Craft Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, as was the sentiment. The card base is Chocolate Chip card stock. Overlaying that is a piece of Sage Shadow which has been rolled with the Baroque Border wheel and stamped with another stamp from the set, both in Sahara Sand ink.

The Ticket Corner Punch was used on many of the corners to give them a more ornate appearance. Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon and Vintage Brads finish off the card.

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Sage Shadow, Sahara Sand
Inks: Chocolate Chip Craft and Classic; Always Artichoke Craft; Sahara Sand
