Carry On: Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday friends!  What another fabulous weekend, I love this time of year.  We got a lot done this weekend, including decorating the house for Halloween/fall so now I'm ready for fall.  This week's Fab Friday challenge is a color challenge. I'll admit these are not colors I use regularly use but it was fun to play along.  I decided to use the Carry On Hostess stamp set since it was sitting out in the studio begging to see a little action and get all inky.   I started  with a cardbase of Sahara Sand and ran it through the Big Shot with the Chevron embossing folder.  Next I added a piece of So Saffron designer series paper, matted on a piece of Going Gray, which was then matted on Whisper White that had been punched with the Scallop Trim boarder punch.  I also added a piece of Whisper White 5/8" organza ribbon around the stack before adhering it to the cardbase.

The main stamped image was stamped by coloring directly on the rubber with Stampin' Write markers.  I did the same thing with the cupcake image and then cut it out with paper snips.  I added some dazzling details to the frosting by using the 2 way glue pen before attaching it to the cardstock with a dimensional.  This whole stamped image was matted on a piece of Basic Gray cardstock before attaching it to the card. 
This card is definately a lot of fun and yummy!  Thanks for checking out my card and join in on the fun with this great color challenge.
