2 challenges in One!


Don't you think it makes it even more challenging to combine several challenges into one? Plus, when you are running a little short on your creating time, it helps as well. This card uses a sketch from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge week 13 found at http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/2009/08/midnight-madness-week-13-mmsc13.html This also is my creation for Fit for Royalty from Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge found at http://flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com/2009/08/fit-for-royalty-challenge.html I am new to both of these challenges, and must say, I really enjoyed them. For my card I embossed gold metal foil with the new Impressablities Diamond and Stars, and then used SEI's velvet paper for my accents. The large metal flower is from Anna Griffin, and the stamp and cardstock are from CTMH. Thanks for looking and letting me play along!

I love the sparkly layer behind the squares! I too, create with beads, but spend much of my time playing with paper these days! Thanks for playing this week. :)
