Creative Challenge 2-1-09

This Creative Challenge was to use a card in the Sale-a-Bration catalog for the layout. The card was on page 9.
It is the Birthday card shown here. We were able to use any colors or stamps we wanted to, but just had to use the layout or sketch of this card.
Here is the card that I came up with. I started with a Rose Red card. I added a strip of Raspberry Tart DSP on the right edge.
Next, I punched a Whisper White strip with the eyelet edge punch. I layered that with a strip of Pink Pirouette and put these on the right edge slightly covering the Raspberry tart strip.
I placed another piece of Raspberry tart dsp on the bottom of the card and layered a small piece of Rose Red CS on top of that.
Finally, I stamped the large Flower from Fifth Ave Floral on Whisper White CS in Rose Red ink and watercolored it. I cut this piece out and curled the edges a little bit. I stamped the "Love you" in Kiwi kiss ink and cut that out, then added both pieces to the card.
Give this challenge a try! The Idea book and Catalog and the mini catalogs are filled with so many great ideas for card layouts. This is why we call them Idea Books!!! Use those ideas.
If you try this challenge, e-mail me your creations or post the link for your blog post or splitcoast gallery to the comments here. I will post any that are e-mailed to me.

Very pretty! Another idea for Fifth Ave Floral that I will have to stash away for another day! Thanks for hosting these challenges!
