Double Challenge Card!


Stamps:  The Stamps Of Life-Monogram2build
Ink:  Soft Suede, Distress Inks in old paper and Walnut Stain
Paper:  Crate Paper Restoration collection, Very Vanilla CS
Accessories:  Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Prima yellow roses, vintage button

Hello!  Here is a card I made for two challenges.  The first is the embellish challenge.  For this challenge you are to make a vintage themed card using the colors rust, yellow and green.
The next challenge is the challenge over at Oh, Alice.  For this challenge the game of chess is the inspiration.  I decided my rust, checked paper would qualify since I own no Alice or chess type images or paper.  This week, Paper Maniac is sponsoring the Oh, Alice challenge!  If you play along, you could win a $20 GC to the PM store!

Thanks for stopping by!

Emily

What a cool card, Emily! I love your take on both challenges. I'm looking forward to trying my hand at the Embellish challenge--not that I have any chance of winning, but those colors look fabulous. Nice work :)
