Subtle Eclectic

Hi Friends

This morning I made this card using my now favorite Stampin' Up set "Kinda Eclectic".  It is so versatile and fun to use.  This card is for the challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches - you can see their fabulous inspiration samples here

This card is also for the Color Throwdown this week... which is Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, and Wisteria Wonder.  Here are some of their fabulous samples.
I stayed pretty close to the sketch ... it's such a nice one.  I used whisper white as my base since I knew there would be a lot of 'activity' on my card.  I ran the crumb cake through the Big Shot using my big dot ef and my new arrows ef.  After matting my rectangular piece with the pink pirouette I used my Nestabilities classic ovals large and classic ovals small to make the center image.
This set is so fun and, for the most part, I'm very happy with the results.  I stamped off the butterflies in wisteria and pink pirouette and then punched them out.  I love that they are sized perfectly for the punches.  A few classic pearls, the stamped sentiment, and 'twas ready to have its picture taken.
I hope you've enjoyed todays card... I'll be back soon ... hopefully tomorrow!  Please join me?  Thanks so much for stopping by... and leave a comment?  I always enjoy reading them.
Happy Stamping
