Using my Unity...

on SCS sponsored challenges this week! This one is the week before last. It's a Limited Supply Challenge, called On Your Mark, Get Set. Limited supply challenges happen on Fridays. The challenge was to complete a card in 30 minutes and boy, was that tough! I set the timer to be honest with myself. I wanted to do so much more to this card. And the worst thing happened, I accidentally cut through two sheet of the black linen paper! Wah! It was such a waste.
I tried to save time on stamping by using the rub-on, but coloring in my image took lots of time.

I made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge. The stamper this particular week was Judy. I cased this card of hers. For some time now, I wanted to use my Distressed Dots background on some clear medium. I should have used acetate as this recycled plastic packaging was really too thick for the Sissix die. It left a clear impression, but I had to cut out the hearts with some scissors.
This card is for Saturday's Inspiration Challenge. This particular Saturday the company/website on display was Spunky Sprout, see here. I also made this card for Limelight Papercrafts Six Chick Sketch #16. The product focus for this week was ric rac!!! While I didn't win the prize, I did get an honorable mention!

The Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge is fast becoming my favorite! They are quick, easy and oh so simple! This CAS was a color challenge, green and blue! I recalled this ancient dp that I had with lots of green and blue. Not colors I use a lot, not sure why I even bought it! I found a stamper I admire and checked out her gallery and cased this card. I really need to remember this ribbon treatment because it is so easy, stays on and is quite economical!
