Blogger's challenge -throwndown--late at night.

How is that for a title. I have three challenges combined on both of these cards, hence my title.

Of course the first is the Blogger's Challenge--it is Friday after all! This week we were given a sketch to work with.

I also decided to use this week's Color Throwdown.

And then of course the Latenight Stamper's Weekly challenge was Christmas in July. I did use Pink Pirouette so they are not 100% current Stampin Up! but it always feels good to use up stash. I did'nt think I liked this combo until I started to play, now I do! What do you think?

Stamps: Scenic Season
Paper: rose Red, Pink Piroette, Bordering Blue
Ink: Rose red, Bordering Blue, versa mark
Other: sizzix scallop oval die, white embossing powder, Markers

The next one uses the new hostess set the More the Merrier

Stamps: the More the Merrier
Paper: Rose Red, Pink Piroette, Bordering Blue
Ink: Rose red, Bordering Blue, Basic Black
Other: markers, circle scissors plus, White gel pen

TGIF! Hope you have a good one.
