A Few More Challenges

Okay, so in an effort to catch up, I decided to combine three challenges again, gooo mee!!!LOL!! This card is for two of the Great Swaps Girls challenges and the Technique Lovers Challenge-what can I say, I am a sucker for some shimmer!! Last weeks featured swapper challenge was hosted by me, but I was so busy with my sister that I never got my sample done in time to post it with the challenge(I am so sorry Vickie, you have to know I think you rock, I chose you right? RIGHT!!). Vickie W. was our featured swapper, and she has a fabulous gallery and blog. I chose this card of hers to CASE, and I changed a few things on it, only cause you have to, because I love it the way it is. The other GSG challengewas this weeks challenge to use a soon to be retired set from SU with bonus points for using soon to be retiring in colors. I don’t know about you all, but I hate when the retired list comes out, just makes me sad. Luckily for me, there wasn’t anything on it that I didn’t really need. Anyway, I used the soon to be retired Weathered and stamped it on Whisper White with Chocolate Chip. The DP panels are from Spring Showers DP from SU. My main panel has the flower from Pretty Amazing stamped three times in Purely Pomegranate and then I popped each layer up. The hummingbird was colored with my SU markers except for the belly which I did with my PP pad and blender pen. I added silver brads to the corners, a spiral clip with some chocolate taffeta ribbon and purely pomegranate ribbon, and then covered the whole panel with Perfect Pearls. Then I put a chocolate taffeta ribbon around the bottom and fastened it with a ribbon slide from the SU Stylized Hardware kit. My sentiment is from the soon to be retired set Circle of Friendship. It was stamped in chocolate chip, punched out with my 1in circle punch, and then framed with some more hardware. That is all for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
