Out of Print

I have not had too much opportunity to play with all the ideas of week 2 of Summer Card Camp, but I managed to create this card using this weeks colour combination which was a yellowy orange, an orange/terracota, red/poppy, and two different shades of green.

I also decided to use one of the sketches that was shared this week.

Paper: Hero Arts Notecard; Neenah; PTI Cardstock; Basic Grey "Out of Print"
Ink: Copics; Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL488; CG328)
Other: Clear Embossing Powder; Ribbon (unknown); Stampin Up Scalloped border punch

I have to admit that I totally love this sketch and have used it (without) the ribbon on a number of occasions.  It really allows you to ise up scraps of paper, especially all those thin little strips that I never get rid of (my sister thought I was mad keeping those strips until  I showed her why  I kept them).

And how perfect is that piece of ribbon I found in my ribbon box!  I know it's from South Africa, but that's about all the info I have.

Thank you for taking a peek.  Maybe I can play one more time with this weeks' colour combo before Sunday.  Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

This is a wonderful way to use your scrpas. There is so much to look at; the lovely "border" with shades of green and the butterfly is a stunner. Love your bow too.
Have a great weekend!

Girl- did you make this while you were/are sick? It's awesome! Don't know how you could concentrate on that! Love all the touches of scallops on the ribbon, edge, and flower in the center- too cute :)
