Two for One

Today's card was done for 2 challenges - the color over at Moxie Fab World and the sketch challenge over at Operation Write Home's Stars and Stamps.

The Moxie Fab World color challenge was to use the Bazzill Basics Paper color equivalents of Beetle Black, Lily White, Pink Fairy, and Tangelo Blast.  Again with the pink but now a pink I couldn't find...  However I think I got an equivalent from the Soul Food collection by Melody Ross for gcd Studios.

The base is Lily White with a strip of Tangelo Blast over the Beetle Black.  Those were accented with my Pink Fairy equivalent from the Soul Food collection mentioned above.  The sentiment from Stampabilities is in Orange from ColorBox on Lily White.  I also inked the edge of the card in the orange from ColorBox and took an old toothbrush and pounced the orange on the orange strip of paper.  I was trying to give it more dimension but not sure I succeeded on that one.

Ok now I must get back to cleaning which was neglected all weekend while my shoulder recovered from a strain/pull...


  1. I LOVE this stamp so much! Everything you make with it is perfect!

  2. Cute card! Love that sentiment. Thanks for playing along in this week's OWH Stars & Stamp Sketch Challenge!

  3. Looks nice! Great job on combining the two challenges.

  4. Hey Betty! Thanks for entering the Bright & Bold challenge in the Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week suite of six challenges in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
