Clean and SImple Monday -Dark Chocolate & Peaches on a Sandy Beach

No sand, no peaches but did you know the CAS Summer DT search is on at SCS?  It's time for the second round of challenges and even though I can't try out since I'm a former DT member, I can still play along so I decided to combine the DT challenge with this week's CAS sketch challenge (CAS120) by team member, Regina.



The DT challenge is a color challenge to use Dark Chocolate, Sand and Peach.  

Edited to add:  I've had several questions on how I did the ribbon technique on this card.  It's really simple.
The ribbon is 1.25" wide.  I ran a long running stitch down the center with my sewing machine.  Tie a knot at one end so the threads won't pull out, then pick up one of the threads at the other end and pull until the desired gather is attained.  Tie off the threads.  Run a strip of Scor-Tape or other double sided tape where you want the ribbon to go, then just press your gathered ribbon onto the tape making sure to turn the ends under.  That's it!

Supplies:

Paper - PTI  Dark Chocolate, Kraft
Stamps - PTI Up, Up & Away
Ink - SU Chocolate Chip
Accessories - May Arts Champagne Silk ribbon, Prima roses, Glue dots, sponge


Pin It!
