Out of My Comfort Zone

Happy Monday evening! Tonight I have a card that really pulled me out of my comfort zone; a real challenge! I used the sketch challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps Blog.

I was intrigued by the sketch and I've never participated in a Paper Makeup challenge before. So with that in mind I combined it with the Joan's Garden challenge ( a real challenge in itself).

  • Color - Orange, Green and Blue
  • Embellishment - Printed Ribbon and something hanging
  • 3 different prints - can include ribbon print
  • Distress with ink 
So with all those things in mind here's what I came up with:

Stamps: Paper Makeup Stamps (image and sentiment)
Background Paper: various
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Stars
Ribbon: Dashes, Dots & Checks and Gina K ribbon
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie

So what do you think about my "out of comfort zone" card? I think I have someone that I'd like to send it too. She's fabulous! Hope you like ti. Thanks for dropping by.
