Love a Double Challenge!

Hello everyone! I am posting AGAIN this week....wow! Nothing like a New Year to get me on the right track! Today I have a card which is well...different...for me at any rate. I combined this week's Freshly Made Sketch challenge with a very tricky ColourQ challenge. I think "tweens" when I look at the colors, but it's been a long time since I have been a tween! LOL!! But I wanted to try some blog challenges just for fun, and this is my end result. I believe that writing up a blog post with 2 challenge icons is a real trick...so we'll see how often I do this! LOL!!




























All of the products used are from Stampin' Up, though some are retired.I don't have any Going Gray ink or card stock, so I used Basic Gray for my card base. I added horizontal strips of pretty in pink card stock with some long-ago retired "ribbon originals." The melon mambo layer is a piece from last year's Sale-a-Bration catalog. Just want this to prompt you to check out this year's SAB items... *wink*. I stamped I {Heart} Hearts in the challenge colors on whisper white card stock. I used my scallop trim border punch to coordinate with the scallop design on the dsp. Finally, I added a pretty in pink heart stamped with Well Scripted in basic gray. Truth be told...it covers up an unfortunate smudge! Shhhhhhhhh...don't tell anyone!!
