I actually made a card that fulfills TWO different challenges!!!! I've never tried that before and just had to share my excitement. I know some of you can meet 5, 6, or even more challenges with one card/project but, still, this is a FIRST for me!
So, for the details: My card is a 5x5 square with a 4.5" opening cut into it. Behind the opening, I layered a section of a black flourish die cut cardstock over white cardstock. I added a curvy edge section of silver glitter cardstock, a strip of white cardstock punched with my MS lace border punch, and then a strip of DCWV stripe cardstock. I trimmed the edge of this section with baby ric-rac colored with silver ink. Then I stamped a birthday cupcake stamp onto a piece of white cardstock using my black staz-on ink. I rounded the corners, stamped a section of a flourish onto a corner and inked the edges with silver ink. I added a gem and pearl flower embellishment and couple of rhinestones. The sentiment was stamped with staz-on ink and given the same silver ink treatment as the cupcake. Oh, and I almost forgot - the flame of the cupcake and the sprinkles on the icing are diamond stickles.
The challenges I met:
Pixie Dust Paperie has the following sketch challenge:
And, Crafting with Christina has a color challenge - Black, white and gray (may substitute silver).
Thanks for taking a look!
