AYSI200 Take Two

Hi everyone!  This Friday is a special's As You See It's 200th celebration!  To celebrate, someone will be chosen to be our guest designer for challenge #202!  Woohoo!!  We also want to thank Amanda for doing such a great job designing our challenge graphics!!  Heather will be stepping in to fill her shoes, and she's doing an amazing job so far!!!  AND, we're saying goodbye to Tara as well!  So sad to see her go, her creations were always inspiring!  

So here is our  current challenge prompt:  TWO!

Image may contain: 1 person, baby

I know the photo looks like a baby challenge....and if you want to make it that, that's okay too!  But there must be TWO of the same elements in your card!!  And if you know me, you know I like things in THREEs!!!  So this was a big challenge for me for sure!  First, I used the Little Red Wagon sketch, which I love, and some of the colors from the Colour Inkspiration photo:


I chose Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit Grove and Smoky Slate for my birthday card, which uses the retiring set, Picture Perfect Birthday:

I stamped the bows in Flirty Flamingo and Grapefruit Grove (the Stamparatus was a great help), and the candles and sentiment in Coastal Cabana and Flirty Flamingo.  There was lots of embossing and fussy-cutting, as well as a few sequins and wee bit of Stella:

The inside also highlights a fun use of the sentiments and other cool elements featured in this awesome stamp set:

So please help us celebrate our 200th--you might be chosen as a guest designer for a future challenge!  Can't wait to see what you create!

You never know what this child is going to come up with!!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

You put so much effort into your beautiful card. There is so much texture and layering going know I love that! I agree three is better than two so it will be a challenge for me as well. Congrats on being chosen as one of the Fab Four Faves at Fab Friday. My teammate, Jaimie, was picked too. Have a blessed weekend and, yes, Cassidy is quite the character! She keeps us smiling.

P.S. At first glance I thought you had adhered pearls to the card front. To learn that it was an EF was mind boggling. Wish they'd bring that back!

I love the Picture Perfect Birthday set! Your card is great! Cassidy gave me a good laugh this morning! Too funny!

You've incorporated a load of textures in this card that make it even more appealing. I like the wee stitched details too. Thank you for playing along with us at Colour Inkspiration last challenge and this one. It's great to have you play and congratulations on being in the top 5 last week too!
