C4C51, IC246 Just For You....

Happy weekend everyone!!!

It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges ~ C4C51!!! Frances created this awesome Sketch for us to try and I hope you have a chance to play along :) ?!? We also have a sponser this week, so please make sure to check out the C4C blog for all the details!!!


I combined the Sketch with this weeks IC246 ~ Pink Taffy. I was inspired by the colors from this super cute photo!!! Here is my take on it...........



I chose the SU Just Believe image...it was perfect for the long oval center. The sentiment is from the same Set. The flower image was colored with ~ Always Artichoke, Real Red and Summer Sun Markers. The card base is a retired So Saffron Long Note. I added some Real Red Satin Ribbon and So Saffron panels according to the Sketch. As you can tell I also added some scoring to then larger center panel. In addition I added another Real Red Ribbon in the center and tied it off with a Styled Silver Ribbon Slide. At last I added the punched scalloped border on the bottom and topped the card off with some Silver Pearls.

Now it's your turn, but first go and check out the awesome cards the *crazy* team has created ~ Angela, Barbara, Cindy, Frances, Jessie, Joanne, JoycelynLyndaMaria, Silke K. and Vicki.

Have fun playing along and thank you for stopping by today!!! Hugs ~S~
