Challenges Galor!


Today I knocked out three challenges with this one card! So the SCS challenges are SC217 a sketch challenge, CC207 a color challenge and WT207 a frugal finds challenge. The colors used are mustard, orange and olive. The flowers were stamped using all three colors onto white squares, thanks is stamped on the mustard piece in black, then VersaMark was "patted" (don't rub or the ink will smear) on top and embossed with a clear glitter powder. The orange paper is sponged with orange and then stamped with the flower stamp after it has been stamped once on scratch paper. Do the same with the mustard panel and mustard ink.
Recipe

Stamps- flowers by Great Impressions, "thanks" by MSE
Ink- Adirondack butterscotch, lettuce and orange (I think it now has a new name), VersaFine black, VersaMark
Plus- Kaleidoscope embossing powder by Stampendous, flower punches, small black brad

Tomorrow I'll be picking up our troops Girl Scout cookies and I will have about 250 cases of cookies in my family room, luckily the girls will be unloading the cars. I'll try to remember to take a picture of all of those cases. We have 15 cookie booths scheduled in March, I better start stocking up on magazines so I'll have something to do at all of those booths!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend :)
