Stamping 411 SSC190 Challenge

I had the pleasure of having my grandson over today. He wanted to know what I use the sponges for. So I showed him and he made this lovely page, don't you think. I am kind prejudice because I just think he is so cute and cuddly, I just want to hug him all the time. So glad he lets me.

 This is the sketch for the Stamping 411 challenge.

This is my take on the sketch. I used my Color Coach from Stampin up to choose the colors to go with the Rich Razzleberry. I would never have thought to pair Early Expresso with Rich Razzleberry but it looks fantastic to me.

The only Rich Razzleberry ribbon I had was the retired polka dot ribbon. I stamped the flower in Rich Razzleberry then stamped it slightly off in Sahara Sand to give it a shadow look. I use the little border stamp from Because I Care and added the smallest pearls inbetween the little flowers on the border.

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Friends Forever, Bring on the Cake, Because I Care

Paper: Rich Razzleberry DSP,  Whisper White, Early Expresso, Pretty In Pink

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand

Accessories: Stampin Up Pearls, Ribbon (Retired)

WOW! Those colors are great together and the card is crisp and clean. I love your idea of making a shadow with a coordinating color. I'm afraid I would get it "too off"...but I am going to try! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work, and your adorable grandson!

Use your stamp-ma-jig and it will turn out beautifully and you will not be off.
