Simplicity

You have to love when you can combine two challenges into one! That's what I did here for this Simplicity card.
I used Julee's Mojo sketch and Bethany's Challenge to alter an embellishment.
It's been a LONG time since I pulled out my Unity stamps. When I found this October Afternoon DP in the drawer I knew what set I wanted to use immediately! For my altered embellishment I covered a button with tacky tape and dumped on glitter!
Stamps: Giggle grove, Gratitude=Joy; Cardstock: Kraft, Very Vanilla, October Afternoon dp; Inks: Adirondack Espresso; Accessories: MM buttons, tacky tape, glitter, twill, linen thread, dimensionals
Yesterday on SCS the Try a New Technique Challenge was Fun and Funky Folds. I decided to try another Squash Book that Alli wrote for Scor Pal. I added chipboard coasters to the front and back. Hoping to give this to my parent's as part of their anniversary gift in a few months. I'll fill the inside with pictures of Chloe.
Stamps: Verve's Asian Flair; Cardstock: Apricot, Sage Shadow, WW and DP; Inks: Black; Accessories: Oval Nesties, Primas, Rhinestone Brad, Celery Grosgrain, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!
