Wow, I was able to stamp and fulfill THREE challenges in one card today! I have been busy getting ready for two workshops, so although I have been stamping, it has been a little limited. The three challenges are: SCS Ways to Use It (Chipboard), Kristina Werner's Color Challenge, and Heartfelt Greetings' Super Sketch Challenge. Kristina's color challenge is Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. Aren't these great colors? I used some Michael's DP from a gigantic pad and SU's Summer Picnic. The chipboard is a piece from SU's On Board Blossoms & Basics, also covered with Summer Picnic and daubered with Pumpkin Pie ink. The "smile" is embossed in Whisper White EP. The twill ribbons are from Taylored Expressions; I daubered the orange twill with some Pumpkin Pie ink as it was a little lighter than I wanted. That's a great way to customize your ribbon colors--if you've never tried this technique, you should! This was a fun, easy layout; the hardest part was picking out my DPs!
