Pooled Suede

How is it that the days go by so fast?  I can't believe that this is the last day morning to enter the Dynamic Duos challenge from last Saturday.


Even though Soft Suede is my least favorite color, it is stunning with Pool Party as the Design Team showed.


This card actually started out as a Less is More one layer card.  It didn't work out like I envisioned so I cut it up and layered it. The popped up butterfly was from the first go round with the one layer card.  It didn't work either, so I cut it out and added a little extra dimension to this card.

The current SUO challenge, Stampin' Up! Loves Animals, is allowing bugs and such.  So I'll be able to take this over there to join them.  It seems like ages since I've been able to play over there.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Creative Elements
Ink:  VersaMark, Soft Suede, Pool Party, Basic Black Marker
Paper:  Whisper White, Soft Suede, Pool Party
Other:  Clear EP, Big Shot, Fancy Fan EF, Basic Pearls

I'd better hurry on over there before the party is over.  Maybe I can still get a one layer card made for the LIM challenge. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy!

Your least favourite, huh? Well it looks gorgeous here! I have to admit that I like espresso better most of the time but suede has a place. And now you've got me thinking about my least favourite colour.....lol!

Stunning colous when put together. I rarely make a card that starts and finishes as I intended it to be. Sometimes you just need to sit back and have a play. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Bonnie! Yes, long time, no see. I've definitely been keeping a low profile in blogland. Thanks so much for coming by for a visit! I LOVE this pretty creation--Pool Party is such an awesome color, and Soft Suede sets it off nicely. This design and its elements are so classy and elegant!!

This is so pretty, Bonnie! We are usually in sync, but not when it comes to the suede this time ~ I love it! I'm sorry I missed DD again, but so glad you were able to duck in there in time!!

Blues & Black. Stunning color combo. Love the EF too. Think I have this one. An elegant card with the flourish layer...really striking. Pearls made the perfect embellishment to finish off. TFS
