Front & Back Challenge


It's another noon time challenge during the release week on the Flourishes blog and this time it's a "Front and Back Challenge" - use the same image in the BG as you use in the main image.  There are two images in this Sweet Violets set that are identical in design but are 2 different sizes.  I stamped the kraft panel in black using the smaller image.  I had to do some out of the box stamping/paper-piecing so I could fit everything in using the Mojo Monday Sketch for this week.  Teresa Kline has a fabulous sketch for us while Julee (Verve owner and proud new mom of twin boys) is taking a little "break" (we all know becoming a new mom is anything but a break - lol)!  I layered some embroidered trim over sheer ribbon and loved the look!  I also got to try punching a decorative edge along the entire side of the card thanks to Cindy Lawrence's very helpful tutorial video you can see HERE

STAMPS: Sweet Violets (Flourishes), Kids Play (Flourishes) - sentiment
PAPER: Black, White, Kraft, Concord Crush
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Modern Garland border punch by MS, Sheer ribbon (Hobby Lobby), Embroidered trim by Wright's, Circle Nestie, Button by SU, Silver bow wire, Copics (BV02, BV04, BV08, Y35, Y00, YG61, YG63, YG67).
