Thanks for Challenges!

It’s me again!  And I’m back with a vengeance!  LOL  I’m doing a silly little happy dance because I’m having so much fun doing challenges again – it’s something I just haven’t had time to do lately, and now I’ve done four in two days!!  So fun!!

Thanks Challenges
For this card, I used a stamp set that I adore – like seriously am in love with.  It’s called Mehndi Medallions from WPlus9 Designs.  The images are like a cross between snowflakes and doilies – and you all KNOW how obsessed I am with doilies!!  I stamped the medallions in Versamark on Soft Suede CS, and then heat embossed them with Brown Sugar embossing powder from Zing.  The card base is Sahara Sand – I really need to use that CS more often – I just love it!!  There’s a Real Red layer in between the main panel and the card base.  The top strip is Basic Black, and the ribbon is Very Vanilla Seam Binding.

I made this card for a color challenge that I’ve been stalking for months and months!!  It’s the Curtain Call Color Challenge #49 – this color combo is awGet Sketchy 57esome!!  I think you still have a few more days if you want to play along, too!  The layout was  inspired by the current card sketch over at Get Sketchy – it’s GS57.  This layout was MADE for these images, don’t you think?!!  Delish!

Okay, kids – I have lots more crafting I want to do, and many, many more challenges I need to tackle.  I hope you’re having as much fun today as I am!  Thanks for stopping by!

This card is so beautiful! I just love it! Did you just stamp those and emboss them? They look like you stamped them on white paper and cut them out! Very intricately! LOL! Gorgeous job gf!

I agree with Erin! This is beautiful and at first I thought it was die cuts or punches until I read your post. Excellent job!
