A Challenge Combo (FMS10, CQC110)


I am having HUGE computer problems so if my pictures aren’t great, I’m so sorry! I’ve been having to flash drive everything, edit on one computer and upload on another. Who said technology made everything easier?


Today’s card is a combination of two great challenges, Freshly Made Sketches and ColourQ.


The base of my card is Soft Suede, layered with Cajun Craze (as I didn’t have Dusty Durango) and then another layer of Soft Suede. But the fun part is what is on that layer!


The central panel is Soft Suede which is stamped with the large flourish from Best Friends Forever. The upper is Pool Party, stamped with the dots from Best Friends Forever, roughed up and sponged. The bottom is stamped with the leaves from Best Friends Forever (not that you can see it) and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Under both of the outermost panels, I’ve added a sponged piece of a Scallop Oval.


The flower in the centre was made using my Boho Blossoms Punch. I punched the large flower in Peach Parfait and the middle sized one in Pool Party. I then added a Cajun Craze Button to the centre with a tied linen thread bow.


Thank you so much for stopping by today!
