Blogger's Challenge 56

Yep, it is Friday and I have another double duty Blogger's Challenge card for you. Summer does not leave me as much stamping time as I would like so I feel better if I can get two challenges done with one card, so here they are.....

Blogger's Challenge Week 56 -- Color Challenge--Really Rust, Mellow Moss, Blue Bayou, Sahara Sand and Regal Rose-yea, that IS a lot of colors-- I can't wait to see what everyone came up with.

and the next challenge is.....

Featured Swapper on Great Swap Girls -- this weeks Featured Stamper is Arin Burdo(arinstamps) ---and this is the card I chose to case --HERE. I kept the basic layout and changed the rest.

My card is also a Sneek Peek of Stampin Up!'s new hostess set Serene Spring -- not sure why we have a Serene Spring stamp set in the Fall Winter catalog but I like it and I think you will too! So now for the card (you will probably need to enlarge to see the details)....







Stamps: Serene Spring (upcoming hostess set) and What could be better (retired)
Paper: Really Rust dp from Fall Flowers, Mellow Moss, Blue Bayou, Sahara Sand and Regal Rose and watercolor paper
Ink: Really Rust, Mellow Moss, Blue Bayou, Sahara Sand and Regal Rose and Black Stazon
Other: Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon, brads, photo corner punch, blender pen, cuttlebug and lots of dimensionals.

I also have been tagged and awarded so I will be posting that with another sketch player next.
