Combining Challenges Again!


It always feels like cheating a bit but really I just made this card for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog whose challenge this week is to sand your embossing, BUT when I saw the themes this week from both Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog and Stamp Something were to use something new on your card, then I'm afraid I just had to combine the challenges!! My Stamposaurus elephant stamp and the Basic Grey Boxer backing paper plus the leaf vine and corner dies are new so you can see why I gave into temptation!

The image has been coloured with Promarkers and Sakura pens and I have used a scalloped square Nestie to cut it out. I have used Cor'dinations Black Magic card through the embossing folder and sanded it to show the pink core and also used the Cuttlebug for the vine swirls and corners.Whatever did we do without our die-cutting machines?!!

I now have caught up and we are back to "normal" tomorrow (whatever that is)!!
