Playing in Challenges

I got emailed all kinds of fun [and similar] challenges for November.

I started off with The Happy Little Stampers November Sketch, and the theme from Mixed Media Mojo; Fall with twist of metalic, Mixed Media #18; texture, Dies R Us #36; Fall, Can You Case It #93; Fall, and lastly Virginia's November Challenge; texture.

I ink sprayed my background, and then embossed it with a [super awesome] new 3D We R Memory Keepers embossing folder.  I just love the 3D look.  I used a couple of tag cuts, and decorative cuts, along with metallic gold embossing paste.  For texture I also used burlap and a couple of wooden leaves, flowers, brads and a metal strip.  Yep, I think I got the Fall and texture challenges goin on!


I also wanted to play in the One Layer Simplicity Challenge; grateful. [I missed it last month].  Using the colors from Sunday Stamps #113; turquoise, brown, gold and white, I came up with this very CAS card.



And I was perusing blogland, and came across Muse #140, with none other then Ardyth as the Muse!  I had to join in! :)

I used the super fun Happy Pandas from My Favorite Things.
Here is Ardyth's card;
Fun day today!  Thanks challenges~


Thanks for stopping by~
