Well - I hit the trifecta with my card today! ...... as in I covered three challenges with this one little card!
1) The Color challenge on Split Coast this week was to pick a color of card stock then use bleach to stamp your chosen image - and use the resulting bleached color as your second color for your card,
2) the Tuesday Doubledog Dare Challenge from jdmommy was to have an out-of-the-box element on your card - in this case the flower is cut outside the 'circle'.
3) AND I finally got to do one of Mothermark's Tuesday Teapot challenges!!! Yippee!!!
My main color card stock is Stampin Up Vintage Violet and when I stamped this cute Stampendous image with bleach - I ended up with this lovely cream color. So my second color is PaperTrey Ink Vintage Cream . I embossed the violet panel with the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folder. I thought it looked a little bit like a honeycomb.
These Bees are happy because they are on their way with the other swarms of bees to visit Uncle Beeford in Booneville, Mississippi - wouldn't you be happy too!?!?! You can check out what that's all about on Cindy's glob (as she calls it!).
