Utah Divas International - Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends,

This is the sketch we had to use for the challenge this week.

When I looked at the challenge I was not sure what I was going to do.  Usually I have an idea in my mind what I am going to create but not with this one.  I am really looking forward to seeing what the rest of the team came up with.

You may remember last week we had to use our least favorite/used Stampin' Up! color.  Click here to see that challenge.
This week was much easier.  I used Chocolate Chip which happens to be my all time favorite Stampin' Up! color.  It is so versatile and it has become my main staple.  Add some Pretty in Pink and voila, awesome color combination.

Here is what I came up with

Stamp Set: With all my Heart
Card Stock:  Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Sending Love Specialty
Ink: Whisper White Craft
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Ribbon, Pretty in Pink Brad, White Embossing Powder, Big Shot/Circles #2, Stampin' Dimensionals.

Heat Embossing is my favorite technique. It goes perfectly with the Designer Series Paper.

Have a go at our challenge this week and post a comment with a link on our blog

Now head on over to Ruthie Burkey's blog - a very special friend of mine, to see what she created.  Click here :)

Have a wonderful weekend.

Ohhh, love this card.. I really need to emboss more often, you make it look beautiful and amazing. And of course, brown and pink are such great color combos! It's such a lovely card. Thanks for the inspiration.
