Challenging Myself

My hubby was off on Monday for Veteran's Day and in a great pampering mood! So, of course we went to Michael's with the 50% off coupon! With my coupon, he bought me a white wood drawer unit for my ever-growing paper collection (only $15.00!). Then as I was picking out a few pieces of paper he pointed out that the Slabs were 30% off and a much better value for my money. Hmmm.... why not? I bought a Super Slab that had die cuts and tags in it. I've made a couple of cards with it already and I love it! This is one.

I was blurfing yesterday when I ran across
Jen's challenge. Looked like fun so I made a card using her sketch.

Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Wonderful Words, Print Pattern
Ink~ Sahara Sand, Regal Rose, White Craft
Paper~ Sahara Sand, Provo Craft Super Slab 9 (By Karen Mieux)

Accessories~ MM clip and brads and pop dots

I faux embossed the sentiment using my Stampamajig for placement.
(Julie has a tutorial on this technique here.) It looks a bit blurry in the pic, but it really isn't. For the background, I inked up my Print Pattern stamps with Sahara Sand ink and then sponged on some Regal Rose ink to bring in the pink.

I've got a few more challenges I want to try if I have time today. AND I've got more birthday cards to share. But first things first and that means housework! Ugh!
Have a great Wednesday!
