Another Challenge Combo--DD#31 and FMS63
Here's another challenge combo card I made. I combined the color challenge from Dynamic Duos and the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches . I actually sort of thought of this as an inspiration challenge too, and here's why: I make myself lists with all the challenges I want to participate in throughout the week. Next to this sketch, I wrote "Fresh" to remind myself which blog it belongs to, so while thinking of what to create "fresh" was in my head...hence, the apple. The apple was created using the heart punch then I covered it in Crystal Effects to make it shine! All the elements (other than the base) were created from scraps! LOVE THAT! The base is the retired confetti white. Man, that stuff is awesome! I love the weight of it and it really adds that extra something to a simple card. I wish I had appreciated this stuff more before it retired. I haven't used the natural white cardstock from Stampin Up yet, have you? I wonder if it is similar? I think this card will go to the director at my son's school. She's such a sweetheart! It's so wonderful to be able to drop off your kid with someone that is so nice and cheerful!
