Three Challenges - One Card

Hello everyone,

I was ambitious this morning and made one card to meet three challenges. It took me two tries but I think it worked reasonably well. The challenges were from Clean and Simple Stamping (rectangles), the Penny Black Saturday Challenge (white on white), and Daring Cardmakers (punch).

For my second attempt I used all Stampin' Up Shimmery White card stock. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Warm Words stamped in Real Red and punched with the Stampin' Up modern label punch. The punch is Stampin' Up Ornament punch. The image is Penny Black's Banner of Joy. The ribbon is recycled from a gift or flowers, I can't remember where. I used Xmas Red Stickles on the holly berries.

The was my first attempt which, when I finished, I realized that I hadn't used a Penny Black image. It is still a useable card however so I thought I would post it. The paper is Stampin' Up Shimmery White and Black Ink Decorative Papers. I textured the two rectangles with Sizzix Snowflakes. The ornament was punched with Stampin' Ups Ornament punch out of Scor-Tape paper and covered with Martha Stewart Florentine gold glitter. The flower is glamour dusted. The ribbon is Offray. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Delightful Decorations in Elegant Eggplant. While not a bad card, I like my second attempt better.

I hope you enjoy both cards and come back to SPI again soon.
