Two in One!

With one card I made this evening, I have completed 2 challenges! And I didn't even realise it until I signed into my blog to post this card.

This card qualifies for Mel's Weekly Challenge #3 and SBS25 Challenge #9. Mel's Challenge was a colour cahllenge (Elegant Eggplant, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, Gable Green plus one neutral) and we had to use Dazzling Diamonds or the new SU Chunky Glitter. SBS25 Challenge was to use up some scraps on a card. Here's my card that qualifies for both challenges.

The base cardstock is Elegant Eggplant. I stamped the flower from Season of Joy in Real Red ink on Real Red cardstock (scraps). I then adhered some Red Chunky Glitter in each of the petals using Tombow 2-Way Glue. The flowers were fixed to the base card with Stampin' Dimensionals. The torn Whisper White (a scrap - already torn) was stamped repeatedly with the flourish from Season of Joy in Gable Green. The Yoyo Yellow piece (also a scrap) is stamped with the greeting from Season of Joy in Real Red.

I have spent a lot of time over the weekend making Christmas cards (I sent all the ones I had made to the RAAF Chaplain in the Middle East for distribution to our Aussie troops so they can send cards home for Christmas). I therefore have lots to post over the next few days. So stay tuned.
