Basic Grey and Pink Elephant Challenges
I set some goals for myself at the beginning of September that I hope to accomplish by the end of the year. While most are not really fun ones....like cleaning out closets and other boring but necessary things, one goal I set for myself is actually fun. That goal is to use all the stamps that I bought during my buying spree these past few months that I haven't used yet. This image I used for this card is the first time I have used it and it was perfect for two challenges that I am submitting it for. The first is Basic Grey's embossing challenge. Besides embossing of some kind on your creation you are required to use something from the Basic Grey line. My yellow, orange and orange printed papers are from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection. The second challenge is for The Pink Elephant Challenge blog which is a sketch this week. I have posted the sketch below.
