Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 57



Welcome to another fabulous challenge by the fabulous Karen! This sketch had me scratching my head for quite a while, but once I'd had a play with it and turned it on its side, it suddenly wasn't as scary anymore! (sorry Karen!) And maybe I shouldn't point it out, in case you didn't already notice, but I have only made 4 panels on the background, not 5!!! That's what I get for not having the sketch right in front of me while slicin' & dicin'. So just imagine there's 5 panels ok?
I have to add at this point that I was also challenged by my dear friend Sarah-Jane (of http://www.sarah-janekale.blogspot.com ).. (ok, so I haven't figured out how to do that neat little linky thing yet!) well, as I was saying, Sarah was agast that my Razzle had done NO dazzling before now, and was desperately in need of some ink! So there you go, two challenges in one!








Recipe:
Stamps - Razzle Dazzle, On Your Birthday
Cardstock & Paper - river rock c/s, purely pomegranate c/s, groovy guava c/s (used for the scolloped circle, which is actually made up of 1/2" circles adhered to the back of the pp circle), Ginger Blossom DSP (retired), very vanilla c/s.
Ink - purely pomegranate (sentiment), mellow moss, groovy guava (sponging) and the following markers.. mellow moss, rose red & cameo coral (they were supposed to be river rock, pomegranate & guava, but we don't have markers for the In Colours, but I bet you couldn't tell the difference!)
Embellishments - Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon (retired), Fiskars Apron Lace punch, CM cutting system for circles.
All materials Stampin' Up! unless specified.
Happy Birthday Larissa!

That is a gorgeous card, the colours are delish. Sarah-Jane can now consider the Razzle to be well & truly dazzled!

(PS to do the linky thing, say in this post, where you typed 'my dear friend Sarah-Jane', highlight 'Sarah-Jane' , click on the little green circle that looks like it has a paperclip over it (link) (is it meant to be a little green earth???) and a text-box will appear with 'http://' in it. Then you type type in Sarah-Jane's URL. I usually go to the blog, copy the URL from the address bar & paste it into the link box as addresses are too long for me to remember. (Does this make any sense at all?? Am so not good at describing things)

I am officially no longer agast, rather BEDAZZLED!!! Truly GORGEOUS. Oh and I'm sure I counted FIVE panels... promise it's not the blurred vision from this blasted headache!!!
