Fab Friday 24 Challenge, with a little Fab Friday 23 too!

Hello Friends!  Happy Friday!

I stayed up late to work on this Fabulous Friday Challenge!  Since I missed the last one, I decided to use this week's color combination, which is lovely, and combine it with the last week's layout!

Here is this week's color combination:

And last week's layout:

Here is my creation! I am giving you an upright view, plus a slightly closer view so you can see all the details!

Lots of "Fussy Cutting" Aka: cutting around all the stamped images.  The Flourish was particularly interesting to cut, but one manages. ;-)

The Flower was stamped onto Watercolor paper in Crisp Cantaloupe, then watercolored with a blender pen using So Saffron and Crisp Cantaloupe inks to the center and edges of the flowers.  This paper watercolors so beautifully!

Smooch Spritz adds that little extra bling along with the glimmer paper near the bottom.  Even if you spritz a little too much, as I did, it still looks fabulous!

Stamps: Everything Eleanor

Paper: Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper, Crisp Cantaloup, Very Vanilla, Pistachio Pudding, Champagne Glimmer, Watercolor Paper

Ink: Crumb Cake, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron

Accessories: Blender Pen (for watercoloring), Dimensionals, Large Scallop Edgelit, Gold Smooch Spritz, Pistachio Pudding Stretch Ruffle Trim.


  1. This is gorgeous, Amy! I love the cut out images. Beautiful blend of the colors too!

  2. This is beautiful! I love the shimmer and all of the fussy cutting. And the scallops at the bottom are so pretty. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!

  3. Wow! This is a really beautiful card! It looks like a lot of work too... fussy cutting is not my favorite thing but I am becoming better at it! Thanks so much for joining us at Fab Friday.

  4. This is so stunning! I love the background, the scalloped border and the thin strip of glimmer paper. All of those little details come together for a truly fabulous card. Your fussy cutting looks amazing too! Fantastic work! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!

  5. Very pretty. I love your color combo and layout. TFS :-)
