Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge 259 and Late Night Stampers 219 (Four Frames)

Good Morning!  I combined challenges again this week.  Last week when I saw the challenges, nothing came to mind and I just had to start creating to come up with something.  Well, this week was just the opposite.  As soon as I saw the challenges, an idea popped into my head right away.  The only thing I had to do was decide on the colors.  Isn't that funny how my reaction to seeing the challenges was so totally opposite?  Just goes to show - you can't control the creative process.

So, here's my card:

Edit 4/16/13 - You may notice this card is slightly different than the one on the challenge sites.  Something about it just didn't seem quite right.  I looked at the sketch again and moved the Decorative Label punched element to the left. 
Did you notice I used one of the returning colors?  I paired Blushing Bride, which will be available in the new catalog, with Pool Party.  The 2010 In Color Designer Series Paper Patterns Pack, which I used on this card, is available on the Clearance Rack now.  I used a card from the Note Card and Envelope pack  to match the shape of the TSSC sketch.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and was stamped inside a stamp from Four Frames, which was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.  The vertical strip was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  The flowers were punched with one of the punches in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I used my stylus (that came with my Simply Scored) and my Stampin' Pierce Mat to give the flowers some dimension*.  Because they weren't flat, I used glue dots to adhere them.  I put a Basic Pearl in the center of each.

Here's the Techno Stamper sketch:
The Late Night Stamper Challenge this week is Paired with a Punch.  This week we are creating samples using stamp sets that have a matching punch!  What a fun one this is going to be.

I hope you'll play along this week.  You can see the other design team challenges and link your entries here:

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out this week's challenges!

*See more flowers that I've given dimension using a stylus here (gave texture and dimension all over) and here (scroll down in post to second card - gave texture to center, which raised the outside petals).  The flowers on today's card were done in a similar manner.  I pressed my stylus in a small circle around the center of the flower, which raised the outside edges.

So pretty sue, the pool party almost looks like bashful blue paired with the blushing bride. Great job on both challenges. Thanks for the fabulous sample for my sketch challenge-so glad you have you on the team.
