weekend challenges

I get some serious satisfaction from combining challenges. This card was made for Kristina Werner's 10th color inspiration and Beate's weekend sketch challenge (WSC50). I just love the colors from that Pottery Barn ad and I'll most likely use the sketch over and over again! I stamped the bird image from the Fun & Fast Notes set and colored it in with markers (old olive, so saffron, and bashful blue). I used my new 3/16" corner rounder to make the scalloped edge and embossed the sentiment (from Absolutely Fabulous) with iridescent ice embossing powder (or as Savi calls it, "sprinkles"). I was skeptical about getting the embossing buddy, but I am so glad I did! It really does prevent the powder from sticking everywhere.

I saw SATC yesterday and I LOVED it. I will admit that I boo-hooed like a baby during many parts. Good stuff!

Hope everyone's having a good weekend! Thanks for stopping by...
