Madison Strips

Yaaaay! I've come Top 3 at Try Stampin' on Tuesday, and I'm thrilled, so a big "Thank You" to their DT.

This is my second post today, and my card is for two challenges

The first is Try Stampin' on Tuesday with
this sketch,

and next is Stampin' Royalty with these colours

This is what I came up with

I embossed some blue card, drew the stitches with a Write marker, and laid it on a white base. I then  repeatedly stamped the stem and leaves on two strips of white card and matted them on coral card . Some blue flowers were stamped, matted, and layered and placed behind the strips of leaves. The sentiment and butterfly were added on top of the strips with 3D pads.

Supplies :
Card = Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Naturals White, Navy and white base FMS
Stamps = Madison Avenue and Verve
Inks = Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, and Pool Party
Tools = Big Shot, Sizzix Textures, Elegant and Bitty Butterfly Punches, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = 3D pads, and Gems

Thanks for dropping by
