CYCI #143 Challenge

Well it is that time again.  Another CYCI Challenge.  This time it is a sketch challenge.  I think these are my favorite types of challenges.  This card has a cute story.  My husband, who has worn contact lenses since forever, finally got a new pair of glasses today.  So, when I saw this stamp, I just had to make the card.  He got quite a kick out of it to say the least!  And, it worked perfectly for this challenge.

Everything used for this card (except the buttons) are from Fun Stampers Journey.  I hope you like the card and will join in the fun and take the challenge for yourself!  Don't be shy, show us your card!

Have a great Holiday!

CYCI Challenge # 142

This challenge from CYCI was a color challenge.  Well it was challenging for me to find these colors in my stash.  So, I took a little artistic license and used a slightly lighter color than eggplant.  I had this pretty printed paper and sentiment stamp which came as a free gift with a card making magazine.  Since it had the lavender and silver colors in it, I thought it would give me a chance to use it.  I paired it with a slightly darker cardstock and matted both pieces onto a white base.  It is so hard to see in the photo, but the tops of the trees on the print paper is silver.  I then embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and finished it off with a lavender bow.

I hope you like it and that you will stop by and take the challenge for yourself.  We would love to see what you create.

Have a great day!
