Up in the Air and Two Challenges

Greetings Stampers, and a Happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I was pretty busy, but still managed to squeeze in some stamping time. I created this Welcome card to welcome two new members of my downline to Stampin' Up! It features the Up in the Air hostess stamp set, which is so pretty with the images colored in.

This project was designed to participate in two challenges. The first is the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. I love the soft, pretty colors combined with the contrast of a dark neutral shade. 

The second is the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge. At first glance, I was a little stumped by this challenge, but when I decided to substitute the Labels Framelit shapes for the doily, the rest came together easily.

Some sparkle was added to the floral image with Dazzling Details glitter glue. When using this product, be sure you give it ample time to dry. I like to leave my projects overnight.

Sandy, as usual, your card is absolutely lovely. Great touch with the glitter on the flowers and using the Label Framelit for the doily image!
