Blogger's Challenge Week 21

I'm back! Sorry for the long absence, but things got a little busy here. First we took a little trip to Las Vegas to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. Then the next weekend I threw him a surprise party and had 30 people over. I thought things would calm down after that, but my family threw me a surprise baby shower the next weekend. Needless to say, I'm just now getting caught back up.

So to get back into the swing of things, I decided to tackle 3 challenges at once.

First, this is for this week's blogger's challenge which was a color combination. We were to use pumpkin pie, chocolate chip, old olive and brocade blue on the card. That was easy enough!

Second, I signed up for another weekly challenge in one of my yahoo groups. This week the challenge was to use our cuttlebugs. I jumped on this challenge because I don't use mine enough but I absolutely love it. I used two embossing folders on this card - the spots & dots folder and the tiny bubbles folder. It's hard to tell from the picture, but I actually used the wrong side of the spots & dots card stock to give a debossed look.

Finally, the layout for this card was from this week's sketch challenge on splitcoast - SC150. As you can see, I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to accommodate the bella.

I hope you enjoyed my entry this week. Don't forget to check out the other Blogger's challenge entries! You can find links to all of their sites in my sidebar.
