Other SCS challenges from weeks gone by

I was really pleased when I finished this card. I started this card with the Limelight Papercraft Six Chick's Sketch #15. When Limelight puts out a sketch, there is always a bit of a product challenge to go with it as well. This time is was flowers, so I used the white flowers from my Pretties Kit. These flowers always seem to stump me. I like them, but am not really proficient in my use of them! Which leads me to the next challenge that you see here.

I worked in LSC207 from SCS. The challenge here was to "stretch yourself" and use things outside of your comfort zone. I have already mentioned the flowers. The other thing that I barely ever use is my brayer. So I brayered some white craft ink on one of my new Texturz plates and ran that through my Big Shot with some Baja Breeze card stock. I love how it turned out! I finished the card with some bling!

This card came via Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday #74 for the sketch! I used the Inspiration Challenge 167, some really fun bras to work in my embellishments. I drew my color scheme from my designer paper. Finally, the challenge from Stamp Something that week was something chocolate and my ribbon and card stock definitely qualified me there!
