Two two-challenge cards in two days! How two-riffic!
(Wow! Talk about FAIL blogging. Earlier today I updated to say that this card was meant for 3 challenges. But, in my hurry to get to work, I updated the wrong card. Now, I'm at work and looking at a very un-embossed card and asking myself "does that look like an embossed beer mug? I don't think so. If you're looking for the the actual YNS #7 - Embossing challenge card, click here, otherwise, read on!)
Well, I have to go back to school on Wednesday. *Sigh* Unfortunately, all of my crafty time will be obliterated with the start of my LAST SEMESTER! (This is my last semester though, that deserves a big WOO HOO!)
In the meantime - I present to you another multi-challenge card! This card is my entry for 2 challenges
I just found out about Stampin' UP and I am kind of sad that I had to scrounge through my Bazzil and DCWV cardstock instead of using the SU colors. I tried my hardest to find something close to Melon Mambo and Rose Red. Honestly though, I just scrounged through my stack o' paper and said "Melon Mambo, Mambo Melon" over and over because it was fun to say aloud. ;)
This image is from Pollycraft Designs and it was last week's freebie. So, if you want it for free you'd better move fast! It won't be free much longer. I actually pre-colored the image while at work this weekend (now you know why I have the job I have!) before I decided to do the challenges. I love how the color combo and the sketch worked well to pull out the colors from the image. Not sure if you can tell, but the flower and hearts are popped up and all of the hearts and the flower have "Glossy Accents" over them. Oh, and the hearts along the bottom are pretty close to matching the color combo. I love it when things come together like that. Also, please note that my glitter addiction is alive and well, I outlined the hearts and sentiment with my glitter pen. It's not a boy card, therfore, it's ok!
