Here's my card for this week's SCS Color Challenge. I know I'm casing this from somebody. I think it's my upline, Lindsey! She's way more creative than I am. The gray parts of the chef's outfit are raised with Stampin' Dimensionals.

SCS Challenges

I combined the color and sketch challenges for this week from Split Coast Stampers. I really like the "Birthday Whimsy" stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog. To my club members - this stamp set will be featured at our February meeting !!

I thought the card was a little plain so I tried to dress it up a little by using iridescent embossing over the gifts. Unfortunately, the camera didn't pick that up very well!

Stamp Sets: Birthday Whimsy, Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Real Red, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Ink: Blue Bayou, Versamark
Markers: Real Red
Accessories: Iridescent Embossing Powder

Back From Hiatus!

It's been over a month since my last post. Now that the holidays are over and a new year has begun, one of my resolutions is post more frequently to the blog! Let's hope I can stick to this resolution!
