A Few Challenges

So, I am crazily creating DT work as I am taking a 2 week vacation in a couple of weeks.  Not really [for fun] planned, but a necessary trip.  I had to break away and play in some challenges... Take my mind off stressing about all I have to get done before I leave. 

I found a new to me challenge, As You See It.  They have choices to make up a card.  Kind of fun.  Paper Players is running a Sentiment Focus challenge.  I was able to incorporate both in one very CAS card!


070

I was able to use 3 colors, popped up, diagonal, and rhinestones for the AYSI challenge- Not bad considering how CAS my card is ;)!  I think I nailed the focal sentiment too.  For this card I used a new STAMPlorations Bold Sentiments; hashtag authentic.


I went on to play in the Inkspirational Challenge; Ombre. 

 As I said, I am breaking from crazy creating, so I used a paint chip for the ombre look. HA! How easy is that!  Were talking a 5 minute card, that packs a punch. I used a STAMPlorations set, Trendy Butterflies.

Thanks for the break, challenges - I had fun!


Thanks for stopping by~

Love both of your creations, Vicki! The paint chip ombre is pure genius, and the feather card is just stunning. Love how you stamped and sponged the feather, and your overstamping. So good to see you this week at The Paper Players!
