CASE Study #43, Just Add Ink #71, and CAS-ual Fridays #6



This week's card from the June muse Jill Foster for CASE Study:



Plus a color challenge from Just Add Ink:

Plus this fun challenge from CAS-ual Fridays:



Equals this card from me:

I mixed it up a little this time, and threw another challenge in the pot :) The CAS-ual Fridays challenge is tic-tac-toe, and you're suppose to pick a row to incorporate onto your card. I picked the 'buttons/die or punch/emboss' row. I used both kinds of embossing (dry and heat), although I have to admit, I'm not that great at heat embossing...at least not with black powder :)  It would probably help if I got an embossing buddy, I've been meaning to get one of those. And, the big scallop circle is the die. Everything is Stampin' Up! except for the embroidery floss and button. Anyway...


Thanks for looking!
Pin It!
