Double Challenge Wednesday #4

Hello Peeps! I am back today with 2 challenges for you today. We have the Truly Scrumptious Challenge #9 and the Creative Belli Challenge #67. I will start with the Truly Scrumptious challenge. Todays challenge is a sketch challenge designed by team member Beth. She has created a great sketch and the added twist to this challenge is to use an altered flower. Change a flower from its orignal state buy adding or changing something about it.

Here is the sketch:

and here is my take on this challenge:

Most everything on this card is part of Stampin Up's Sneak Peak. New items that will be in the new catalog coming out on July 1st. The colors of the papers and ink are part of the new In-Colors that will be introduced. The purple is Rich Razzleberry, the orange is Dusty Durango and the yellow is Crushed Curry. I do have to say I used 3 items on this card that are NOT Stampin Up products. They are the flowers, the gem stones and the scalloped circle in yellow was punched with a non-Stampin Up punch.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Whiff of Joy. Here is a picture of the stamp you could win if you participate in this challenge and incorporate both the sketch and the altered flower into your creation.

So what are you waiting for??? Head on over to the Truly Scrumptious blog and check out all the beautiful creations from the Design Team and then get started on your own entry.


Now on to the Creative Belli challenge. This weeks Creative Belli challenge has 2 elements to it also. We have a sketch challenge for you that we have combined with a Sweet N Sassy challenge. The other part of this challenge is to create a card for DAD!!! Sweet N Sassy generously donated one of their cute digi-images they have available now. He is called Catch of the Day. So here is the sketch we would like you to follow:

and here is my take on this challenge:

The image and the phrase in the frame are from the Sweet N Sassy Digi-image. The rest of my supplies are ALL Stampin Up. The dotted ribbon is the New In-Color Soft Suede ribbon that will be introduced in the new catalog coming out on July 1st.

So you know what to do now. Head on over to the Creative Belli blog and check out the rest of the Design teams beautiful creations. Then get started on your own entry. All the details are on the blog, just follow along. If you post to any online galleries, please use Keyword CBC67. You do need to mention the Creative Belli challenge in your description to be elible for the prize.
