Crazy 4 Challenges...Birthday

Happy Saturday Peeps!!!

Time or a new challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.

This week it is a fun sketch:

I modified the sketch just a bit for my card. I always am intimidated a bit by sketches with small elements like this one, I never know what to do with them. So when I went to make my card I started by looking through my stamps and I came across my tag Talk stamp set, which I had never used, I thought the images would work for the sketch.
My first thought was stamping them onto black and embossing with white for a chalkboard look.
I used versmark ink and white embossing powder. I then used the label bracket punch to punch out the three images.

The base of the card is Basic Black and then a layer of white and then another layer of basic black. The DSP is from the Neutrals pack.
I added a white doily to the middle and then the three punched pieces are added to the base with dimensionals.
I then used the Petite Flowers stamp set with Calypso coral ink for the flowers. I also stamped a couple flower in Old olive for the leaves.
the flowers are added to the side pieces with dimensionals. The leaves are just tucked around the flowers here and there. The centers are Crushed Curry candy dots.
Be sure and head over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog 
to see what the rest of the girls did with this awesome sketch.

Thanks for stopping by today
