Color Dare #8 and Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge July 2012

One card for two contests!  Yep, that is what busy girls do--get the most out of your mileage!  I made this card for both the Color Dare Challenge #8 and Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge for July 2012.

For the Color Dare, we were to use the split complimentary pastels sky, pear, and smoothie.  The Heart 2 Heart sketch looks like this:

Here is the fun card I came up with combining the two challenges:

I just received A Tulip size A My Acrylix stamp set with my Stampaganza order and wanted to give it a go.  I peeked into my scrap drawer and found the negative of this flower cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Perfect!

The border stamp was a challenge in the White Daisy Ink, but I am happy with the final look.  

Here is my supply list:
Pear, Sky, Smoothie, White Daisy and Kraft cardstock
A Tulip My Acrylix Stamp Set (not available after July 31st!)
Smoothie ribbon from the Pink Collection (not available after July 31st!)
White Daisy and Pear Exclusive Ink Pads
White Daisy Crochet Flowers (no longer available, but easily substituted)
Paradise Assortment Baker's Twine in Smoothie (not available after July 31st!)

You might notice that there are a few items not available after the end of this month.  Here is a complete list of the COLORS going away with the new Idea Book launch on August 1st.  If you want any inks or papers in these colors, you need to act now!  The ad faces are my favorites of these that I will miss.  :(
