Challenges to Share

Shirley challenged the CCEE Stampers to create a card using their favorite color combo AND there must bee a half circle included.  Well....I didn't have to think very hard, as black and white OR black, white, and RED are my fav color combos.  I used a fab frame by Waltzingmouse Stamps and a great sentiment from Just Ritie to created my design.  I added some bling, some flourishes, and Primas.  To finish it off, I used a Cheery Lynn Designs Doily in RED for my half circle.

Please be sure to visit the CCEE Stampers Blog to see the fav color combos of the rest of this friendly and fabulous team.

Lois challenge the Stampin B's to create a one layer card.  Now THIS is a challenge for me, but I think I met the criteria.  I stamped a shadow stamp on the base paper, adding piercing on the top and sides.  I stamped my sentiment below the shadow stamping.  I then stamped and colored my leaves, cutting them out, and then popping them off the base.  Hope that was okay?????

The leaves and sentiment are images from the Autumn Glory set from Mark's Finest Papers.

I can't wait to see what the rest of the teams one-layer cards are....how about you?????  We can all find them at the Stampin B's Blog.
