Saturday Super Challenge

NOTE: for today, tomorrow, and Monday...this will be on auto pilot since I'm partying the weekend away because of my birthday on Monday! SWEET 32 to me!!!

Yup...it's that time again! This time...Melissa of Stamp It, Scrap It Share It is hosting! Her challenge it to make a card using 3 Cuttlebug embossing folders (the minimum)...without getting too gaudy! Now that's a challenge! I had a really hard time coming up with something because the most I've done is 2 CB embossing folders...lol. BUT...in the end...I got it done! I don't know if I'm too happy with it because it's not really me...but then again...I am challenging myself on this.

Remember...to enter your cards, just follow that simple guideline posted on Melissa's blog and then upload it to Splitcoast Stampers with the keyword she's provided. The keyword for this challenge is BLOGC2.

Here is my sample for this Saturday's challenge! OH OH OH...before I go on...I am super stoked because I am now the HAPPY owner on the Sizzix Bigz Top Note die!!! I've seen MANY awesome creations made with this die and I was just drooling for it....ok...moving on! Keeping true to my New Year resolution...I have dug deep into my stash of stamps and dug out Paper Trey Ink's Out on a Limb set!!! I've been so into coloring that I've put aside all my non coloring stamps! So once again...I dug it back out! I don't know if I'm just crazy...but I can hear them whimpering! :O So...here we go...here is my card using 3 embossing folders. I used Swiss Dots, Script, & Textile. Oh and guess what...all of this CS...was in my scraps pile!!! :O
Check out what Melissa & Joni made!
