Challenge time!

This card was made for Beate's sketch challenge WSC18. I like the sketch, although it was a bit challenging for me. I needed a birthday card, and just happened to have a chipboard B leftover from last night's monogram Christmas ornament (see yesterday's post). So that's how it all began.

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Studio G birthday set from Michael's $1 Clear stamp sets.
Paper: Crate Paper's Cowgirl Collection in "Side Saddle" for main card and reversed for matte; Karen Foster's Burlap; "Bright Floral" by My Mind's Eye (B); shimmer white from SU.
Accessories: SU ribbon, crystal brads in blue, Heidi Grace adhesive leather nameplate, chipboard.
Ink: Ruby Red, StazOn in Timber Brown.

I also participated in the Limited Supplies Challenge for today on Splitcoaststampers. I ended up doing a no layers card for this sympathy card.

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Art of Life, Canvas, scripture sentiment by Wordsworth
Paper: Bordering Blue from SU.
Accessories: none!
Ink: Going Gray, Basic Black

Lastly, I did the challenge to do a card with pocket(s) in some form or fashion. I decided to do another birthday card with a bookmark inside.

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Studio G stamps from Michael's $1 Clear Stamp Set bin; Warmest Regards from SU.
Paper: Rose Red, Kaleidescope designer paper, textured Not Quite Navy.
Accessories: sewing machine, Prima's, Stickles (Frosted Lace), snap eyelet, SU ribbon.
Ink: Not Quite Navy.

I'm planning on hanging out on Splitcoaststampers some this weekend for VSN (virtual stamp night) for many more challenges, so keep your peepers peeled! And if you have time, join in the fun!
