I did this one in monochrome for this week's challenge at Card a Day, a blog I just discovered, and chose blues for the challenge at Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog, which I just found last week.
I hope to be working with alphabet stamps tomorrow, but there's still collage squares, the floating focal point, and multiple embossing from Day 2 as well as the pigment powders and paint resist that I probably won't get to at all...
Oh, before I forget, I made this clever little number last night using Julie Davison's tutorial, which I found on Pinterest, and then discovered that the challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash is for an extra fold or pleats:
stamp sets - Curly Cute, Happy Grad (retired); ink - Real Red; card stock - Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Window Sheet; Crystal Effects, white Bakers Twine, Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate, 5/16" white brad (retired)
I'd like you to know that taking time from my Stretch Your Stamps "homework" to make this card is one reason I'm behind, but then I'd probably have to admit that Carly's open house was Saturday, and I should have mailed a card to her last week, so let's just not go there. At least I'm only one day behind now, instead of half a week ;\
