Terrific Tuesday!

Hello everyone!

This morning I needed to create a few challenge cards. MFP, Simon Says Stamp & Unity Stamp Co have posted the latest "gotta do" challenges. I already loaded the sketch for  MFP Oriental Sketch in my last post, but I'll load it here because I took a very different look at the diamonds at the bottom.

Look at mine and see if you can "see" the diamond shapes at the bottom. I used my embossing folder to create interest on the pink 1st layer. I decided to use crystal effects on the center sentiment stamp and while it was wet, I sprinkled with SU dazzling diamonds extra fine glitter.  Love the pastels in this card - will work well for Simon Says for sure!

And the next challenge for MFP is MFP FOSTV Under the Sea. I am still playing with my punches and I couldn't find a sea life stamp in mu studio (guess it's still boxed up somewhere.) So, I pulled out the trusty punches and created this adorable little guy. I will send this to my daughter "Sissy" who is living in Virginia Beach with friends. But, I'll wait 'till summer when she'd be getting ready to go to the beach... lol  For the background of this card I took cling wrap and balled it up. I pounced it in Versa Mark ink, once I had it randomly blotted onto the blue layer I sprinkled with clear embossing powered and heated it. The bubble are simply punched white circles. The sentiment is from a Halloween stamp set I've had for awhile. The shark was created with a large heart, wide oval, large and small oval and scissor to nip out his teeth. And there he is. I'm in love with his little cute face!

Okay, time to link these cuties up and do a few chores here around the house. Thanks for stopping by guys!
