A Savannah Card and Candle

I was so excited to use the stamp I won from The Greeting Farm while they had their A Stamp A Day Giveaway. I chose Savannah and she was soooo fun to work with!! I also decided to tackle as many challenges as I could. The challenge for Paper Play this week is to use your favorite embellishment. I couldn't choose just one, so I used my favoriteS. I followed the card recipe for the Dutch Dare which was to use 2 different colors of cardstock, 2 different patterned papers, 2 flowers, 2 brads, and 2 gemstones/buttons. You could use more if you wanted, but the minimum requirement was two for each category listed. For the Cupcake Craft challenge, they wanted players to use buttons and stitching. Scallops were required for the Creative Card Crew. Last but not least, I used the sketch from Create 4 Fun. For the Anya Ink Challenge, the qualifier was to use stitching. The Anyone for Anya Challenge is to use autumn colors. Woo, seven challenges, what a task! Check out my card and candle combination!

Here is the sketch:Here is my creation:Here is the front of card:Here is a side view (for dimension):Here is the inside:
For the patterned paper, I used one yellow paper with flowers and another striped yellow and white paper. For my cardstock, I used salmon, green, white, and black colors to accent some of the colors from the yellow flower paper. For my stitches, I used Daisyd's tape. Assorted prima flowers throughout the project. Two white brads from Making Memories. Assorted buttons. The scallop punch is by Martha Stewart. Inside the balloon, cake, present, and sentiments are from Stampin' Up. Ribbon from Michael's. Various Stickles. Images colored with assorted Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by!!
