WOW! TWO POSTS IN ONE DAY - I AM ON A ROLL!

I decided I wanted to try my hand at another challenge card and I noticed a lot of people do the Splitcoast challenges so I thought I would give it a whirl! I don't maintain a gallery over there (don't even know how) but I figured enough people visit that site to know what I mean! So, here is challenge sketch 138. I think what made me try this was all the potential for layering which I love to do because I think it makes the card - for me, at least! I have seen some wonderful cards made very simply but mine, not so much - LOL! Anyway, here is the card that I made to go with the sketch - I would love to know what you think! I did make mine square (I really love them!) but everything else I tried to follow. Here is the recipe (all products SU!):



Paper: Blue Bayou, Bordering Blue, Bordering Blue, Wintergreen Specialty paper, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Naughty or Nice, Season of Joy
Accessories: Corner Ticket Punch, Blue Bayou Ribbon and Stampin Ink, Brocade Blue Brads and Stampin Write Marker, Stampin Dimensionals, Liquid Glue, Dazzling Diamonds

I like it! It looks great.

Starting a gallery on SCS is easy. You should start one if you start doing challenges.

Just upload your card to the stamp set category of the set you used. Make sure you add the challenge# in the key word section.

All uploads automatically go into your member gallery AND the category you chose.

See....easy peasy! Hugs and smiles

This is lovely, I'm so glad you decided to do the challenges.you chose great colors and images. As for starting a gallery on splitcoast, I think it would be a great idea. It's actually easier then setting up a Blog.

This is wonderful! Great colors. :)

Beate's right... Starting a gallery is so easy, you should definitely do one! After you add your challenge photos into your gallery, just copy the link and paste it in a message on the challenge thread so everyone can take a peak at your work. LOL, that was wordy, but hopefully it made sense. :)
