Stampin Up That Thing You Did for Fab Friday #70 and TGIFC#15

By | August 8, 2015

Challenge time again and this week I had the company of my lovely downline, Caroline.  As well as some creative inspiration, Caroline also helped police my children who weren’t whisked off for the day this week.  I must admit I did spend a long time staring at the sketch from Fab Friday and stroking the cardstock in the colours from TGIF, before finally getting a brainwave!

Here was the sketch from Fab Friday

and the colours from TGIF

and here is the card I came up withStampin Up That thing you did TGIFCPPA-001

I’ve used a base of Basic Gray with a mat from the Neutrals DSP Stack. My sentiment is from That Thing You Did and is embossed in white before I’ve sponged over in Pool Party and Daffodil Delight. A few random candy dots in Daffodil Delight as embellishment complete my card.

I hope you like my entry, do check out the challenge sites for some great creative inspiration.

Here is everything I used to make today’s card.

    I love how you combined these two challenges and this color combo works great! The 2 colors of sponging over the embossing was a great idea!!! Thanks for playing at #TGIFC this week!
