Lucky duck I am, my sweet friend Juanita recently gave me a whole pad of Coredinations Cardstock that was already dry embossed with Cosmo Cricket patterns. If you've never played with Coredinations, you must! Their cardstock is so much fun to sand, tear and play with because it always has a different color core than the main outside color. Too much fun!
My layout for the challenge is a mixture of (way) old and new products in my stash and combines the latest sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:
Patterned Paper: Paper Pizazz, Studio Calico // Cardstock: Coredinations/Cosmo Cricket, Bazzil // Alphabet & Large Bling Brad: Pink Paislee // Pearls: Close To My Heart // Gold Pen: American Crafts // Large Flower: Wal-Mart
For the color-core cardstock portion, I sanded the dry-embossed design and tore along the edge to bring the inner color to the fore front. I cut out some fancy flowers from a sheet of Studio Calico paper, and added a big peony (shamelessly from the fake floral section at WalMart) centered with a gorgeous bling brad from Pink Paislee. For the title, I smudged some PearlFX powder across the foamy Pink Paislee Artesian Alphabet. You can't really tell here, but it's nice and shiny now!
