Multi-Challenge Card



If you've been following my blog lately, you know I have been having a tough time getting back "in the groove" since returning from my vacation. The distraction of the Olympics hasn't been helping (though I am enjoying them very much).

I have never tried Beate's Inspiration Challenge, so this is a first for me. I have combined her BIC19 with the DCB808 Dirty Challenge at Splitcoaststampers to come up with this card for my nephew. I really need to work with my photo editing program, as the lighting and colors are off in my photo. So sorry about that!

Here's the deets on my card:

Stamps: Headline Numbers (SU), Piece of Cake (PTI), Year-Round Puns (PTI)
Card Stock: Gable Green, Basic Gray, Really Rust, Whisper White
Ink: VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black
Accessories: White embossing powder, 5/8 " Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Corner Rounder punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

New blog header, or am I just behind the times? It's really beautiful! Great card too. I must try to wrap my brain around this challenge.

This is about as perfect as it gets for a 20 year old nephew! I love the design and colors. Good luck getting back in the groove. I'm a little out of it, myself, and I have no excuse whatsoever!
