I haven't done a Challenge in quite a while so I decided it was time to try and get at least one done. This is for Beate's Challenge and I hope it is not too far off what her sketch looks like. I have all Stampin' Up! products here. The base card is Riding Hood Red, which happens to be one of the new "In Colors", layered with Ski Slope one of the terrific Designer Papers that appears in the Holiday Mini. The stamp set I decided on was Uppsy Daisy which happens to be very popular. This was stamped in Riding Hood Red on Shimmery Cardstock then I punched the desired area out with the new 1 3/4" Circle Punch that can be found on page 188 in the current idea book and catalog along with all the terrific punches Stampin' Up! carries. I sponged the stamped piece with Riding Hood Red, then Close to Cocoa before using dimiensionals to mount it on a piece of 3 x 3 Textured Pink Pirouette, also a new "In Color" that I had punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. I also used the Scallop Edge Punch on the piece of Close to Cocoa that was mounted on a strip of Shimmery Cardstock. I used the piercer from the Crafters Tool Kit along the edge of the Cocoa Scallop piece. The Double Striped Riding Hood Red Grosgrain Ribbon was knotted then run under the main stamped piece. I used the Large Square Punch on a piece of Pink Pirouette and then cut it in half, sponged with both Riding Hood Red and Close to Cocoa, mounted them on the edges and added two pearls from the Pretties Kit. To finish the whole piece off I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds on the large flower.
