2 For 1

Hello dear friends!

Can you believe it is November already?  Where has this year gone?
Like any other year it has had happy times and sad times.  This card is for one of those sad times.  One of the ladies from the Teapot Tuesday Challenge on SCS recently lost her sister to cancer.  Our challenge was to make a mosaic card.  The base cardstock is elegant eggplant.  I took a piece of designer paper and cut it up into pieces and then pasted them onto the elegant eggplant.  Then I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I did this twice to give it a shiny mosaic look.  With the Cuttlebug I used a Nestibilities die-cut to make a frame on which I placed the image and sentiment.  The image was colored with Copic markers.  The image is a digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps.  Added rhinestone swirls and sheer, polka dot ribbon to finish it off.  The frame and image are on dimensionals.

Paper:  elegant eggplant, pure plum cardstock, unknown designer paper
Stamps:  Digi from Bugaboo Stamps
Ink: Versamark, Copic markers
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestibilities die-cut, scissors, glue, heat tool, clear embossing powder, dimensionals, rhinestone swirls, polka dot sheer ribbon.

This card was made for a color challenge and a sketch challenge.  The colors we were to use were tempting turquoise, elegant eggplant, pumpkin pie and I love these colors and sketch for a Halloween card.
The base is tempting turquoise run through the Cuttlebug using a swirly vine folder.  The next layer is pumpkin pie on elegant eggplant and embossed with the pumpkin folder.  Used a corner rounder punch on two corners.  Next is a strip of elegant eggplant that I used a border punch on the one end.  The image is a digi from Bugaboo Stamps on white and pumpkin pie.  Image is on dimensionals.  Added orange rhinestones and black metallic ribbon.  Very simple to make.

Tomorrow I pack to go to Fairmount Resort for a week of rest and relaxation.  Pray that the roads are good and not icy.
