DD/DDA Challenge

Stamps: A Year of Sweets 1, A Year of Sweets Sentiments
Card Stock: Santuary (Me & My Big Ideas), Neenah Solar White, Yo Yo Yellow
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers, Gold Spica Glitter pen
Accessories: Circle & Pinked Circle Nestabilites, Large & Small Oval punches, Gold ribbon, Scotch foam tape

It's the 20th of the month again, and that means it's time for another DD/DDA challenge. I don't always have the opportunity to play along, but this month I was able. :D

Here's the challenge:

Focus: Cards/Poker/Games/Gambling/Luck (or anything loosely related)

Required Element: A card with a special fold (no standard fold allowed)

Restricted Element: No buttons (faux or real)

I knew that I wanted to use my new SASI A Year of Sweets 1 set for my image, so I stamped and colored it right away. That was my big mistake. I had to search and search for some patterned paper that would look "okay" with the coloring I had already finished. Luckily I came across my Sanctuary (Me & My Big Ideas) pad that I purchased from Jacksonbelle Embellishments a while back. I used the Spring Card tutorial (written by Sandy Hulsart) that I found at SCS, for the fun fold.

Here are the wonderful submissions from the others: Here

I have have a busy day ahead of me, so I'd best be going. Thanks for dropping by!!
