2 Challenges, 1 Card

So, the two Challenges are the Color Throwdown #112 (sept. 28th) and the diva sketch challenge [(sketch) sept. 18th]. My Stampalicious Card Club has a sketch challenge this month, and I selected the UDI website. I wanted my group to have 'samples' using Stampin' Up! products. The rules to our card challenges are simple: use the sketch/color combo, and SU! products. For our challenges, I don't have the club members make a card for every member, instead, they make one and we vote on whose we like best. I do this, because I would rather encourage their creative side, instead of having them 'dumb down' their entry due to cost, or mass produce-ability. The winner gets to select from the 'prize box'.

Back to my entry: I wanted to use just one stamp set and the colors for the challenge. I wanted to show that you can create a beautiful card without spending a million dollars on product. Don't get me wrong, I am more than happy to sell you a million dollars in SU! product, so please contact me to place your order.

Card recipe:

cardstock: old olive, pumpkin pie, riding hood red, and vanilla (neutral).

stamp set: friends 24-7

ink: soft suede

misc: jewel rhinestones, scallop trim border and the scallop lattice embossing folder

Thank you for looking, and please post a comment: let me know if you like my card, or if you think its too plain. And don't forget to post a comment on the 'Halloween Candy' entry and follow the guidelines to win some blog candy.

Hi Sharon:
I really like your sense of beauty with your card designs. This card makes me think of Christmas and could easily be made so using all red and green. It's great to see how versatile SU stamps can be, not limited to one season or theme. Have a great day. Marge
