Hello everyone...hope you are having a wonderful Monday!! We went to see the new Harry Potter movie on was kinda long and not very exciting. Maybe they are saving all the excitment for the last one!! Anyway...

I made a couple of cards for Splitcoast's Friday Night VSN challenge night....I am not a fast stamper so finishing a card in 45 minutes was kinda stressful but fun!! The first challenge was to use a hole punch in a new way. I had to cover up some of the holes I made for the bubbles with bling because I ripped the paper.....way to go grandma!!! I colored the Rubbernecker images with copics and colored the water with chalks. Ribbon is the only other embellishment on this one layer card. If I had more time I would have popped the fish and some of the coral but that's for another day!!

Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: White, Pacific Point, Baja Breeze
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Chalk, Copics, Bling, Punch, Ribbon

The second challenge was a color challenge to use pink, green, white, and black. I stamped the Botanical Bloom image with Versamark and embossed with white ep. A tiny black pearl was added to the center and a pink silk ribbon finishes it off.


Stamps: Botanical Blooms
Paper: White, Prism Baby Pink Medium, Frosted Mint, Provo Craft dp
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: White ep, Nestabilities, May Arts Silk Ribbon, SU Scallop Punch, Black Pearl

Today's CAS challenge on Splitcoast is a color challenge: turquoise, orangs, and yellow. When I saw the challenge colors, I knew right away what paper I wanted to use but it took me quite a while to find it...I just love this Pink Paislee paper pack called Vintage Moon...the owl was the perfect color. Turquoise flowers with orange and yellow rhinestones were added to the branches and the Unity Stamps sentiment from the July KOM finishs it off. I did add black pearls to the owl's eyes for a little dimension.

Stamps: Unity July KOM
Paper: Pink Paislee dp, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Flowers, Rhinestones, Black Pearls, Nestabilities, Dimensionals
Thanks for visiting today....have a great day!!!
