Can you Tell I Enjoy Challenges

Normally I'm a person that browses blogs looking for cards to CASE, but since I've started my own blog and have a place to showcase my cards I've really enjoyed all of the challenges out there. Don't get me wrong, I still scour the internet for cards to CASE, and with all of the talented SU! demonstrators out there I never have a hard time finding one I like.

The card for today's post is combing 2 challenges. The first is a color challenge, Color Combo #55 at Scrapmaster's Paradise.

.

And the second is Sketch Challenge#106 at Create with Connie and Mary



This is the first time I've participated in these 2 challenges. So, without further delay here is my card.



Supplies
Stamps: Fast and Fabulous, Elements of Style
Paper; Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink: Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Punches: 1 3/4" Scallop Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle, 1" Circle
Accessories: Old Olive Brads, Paper Piercer, Matt Pack, Stamping Sponges, SNAIL, Dimensionals

Tips
I made my own background paper using the Daffodil Delight cardstock and randomly stamping on it with Daffodil Delight and Cajun Craze ink with the Fast and Fabulous stamp set.
I sponged the edges of the Daffodil Delight and Whisper White with Cajun Craze Classic Ink, and the Old Olive Cardstock with Old Olive Classic Ink.
Around the right edge of the Old Olive layer I used my Paper Piercer and Matt Pack to create a little design.
I know I said I would post the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and Spritzer tutorials today, but honestly I forgot all about it. I will post them later today.
For now, I hope you enjoy the card and have a great day.
