This is my second submission for challenge(s), but my first using multiple challeges. It was a lot of fun to try to combine more than one challenge and meet the requirements of each. There may be some massaging of the requirements, but I think it works. The colors are for CC225, the layout is SC235, and there's no stamping (i.e., uses diecuts (expanded to include punches) and digis - the sentiment was printed off the computer) for LSC227. It's also my tribute to summer/the 4th and I'm guessing there's a challenge somewhere for that, but I don't know where... :)
I got stuck in the no stamping mode so this card includes diecuts only and uses my NEW cricut :) Wanted to try this tri-shutter card, knowing it's been awhile since this challenge, but better late than never.
Here's my submission for Saturday's inspiration challenge on SCS. The poster this is based on can be found here: http://www.posters.com/pv-468305_Meadow-Suite-I.html I also added this to the CAS21 challenge as I think the gold paint around the edge adds a bit of sparkle. Plus Karen Dunbrook made it a CAS FAV on Sunday!! YEAH! I'm very new to all the challenges and I'm finding it very rewarding.
I'm thinking of giving this a co-worker for her birthday. Not sure I like it, had a hard time putting it together after coloring the scene. Anyway, I've got until August to decide! Also used this for another card for the IC187 challenge. Here's the insipration: http://www.posters.com/pv-399001_Jap...--Blossom.html
Also used it for StampinBs use metal challenge.
Okay, that was what I did this past weekend. Oh yeah, here's what my puppy did as I made cards....
If you're wondering, she's looking out the vent hole in my window for my in-room a/c...unfortunately, on Saturday I set up the a/c so she doesn't have this view anymore :( Oh well, she seemed to like the a/c on Sunday so I think she'll be okay until Fall :)
Also, wanted to let you know...if you want some details on cards I post here, you can also view them at SCS in my gallery: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=157583
