The sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge was the start of this project along with the challenge over at Sweet Stampin' for Christmas in July. I wanted to use one of the new hostess stamp sets from the CTMH Annual Inspirations catalog that I will be sharing with my gals at my annual Open House - just a week from today on Friday July 25 and Saturday July 26.
This card also provides a challenge to those who will be attending the Open House - to see if they can find the new product that is showcased on the card. Other than the stamp set (Sing Glory C1587 which I already identified as being new) can you find the other four new products shown on this card? Make notes for what you think - then bring it with you to the Open House for an extra entry for the door prize!
Some of the detail of this card was inspired by several other challenges that were running this week. The background image was stamped (Distressed Backgrounds - CTMH D1544) and the front image panel was popped up for dimension - both a part of the Friday Mashup Challenge. Merry Monday challenged us to add sequins - and I went a bit above by adding bling to the center of my sequins!
Here are the links to the challenges that this card is entered in. Pop over to their blogs to check out the other great cards that have been created.
