New Design Team

I have some wonderful news.   The upline of Stampin' Up! that I belong to, has created a design team!  Nacho Average Challenges.  And several of us demonstrators who belong to this group are on the design team.   Here are the design team members:

Jenni Hogan - Stampin In The Son
Leilani McGranahan - Lani Stamps
Rose Alexa - RMA stamps 4 U
Sharon Wheet - Designs by Sharon (you are here)
Tammy Fite - Stamp with Tammy

On this challenge blog, Nacho Average Challenges, we will have sketches and color challenges for you use.  We are planning on having a new challenge each week.  The challenge week starts on Tuesdays and ends on Sunday, I believe. So, you will have all week to play along with us.  The only requirement, is that you use Stampin' Up! products in your creation.  And we will do the same.  
So, without further ado, here is the FIRST sketch:

Looks fairly easy to work with.  There is a lot of potential for you to add your own flare.  Make it CAS or create layers and add embellishments!  Use any color combo your heart desires.
Here is what I created:

I used pool party card stock as my base.  I stamped the different images from the French Foliage stamp set randomly on the naturals white card stock.  I stamped the flowers from the Field Flowers stamp set, in Summer Starfruit and Wasabi Green classic inks.  The little tag was created with the scallop rectangle die.  I added a little piece of scallop trim border.  I added a small strip of vanilla taffeta ribbon.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso classic ink. 
Join us won't you?  There is a linky code for you to upload your challenge submission.  Good luck.  And we can't wait to see what you create!

Sharon I love this card. Our styles are similar. I really like how you utilized the clear scallop rectangle as a mat and the edging. Simply adorable darling! :9)
