Two Challenges

Hello everyone! Well, I can't believe it snowed last night. The wind sure did howl and once that stopped it started snowing. Not a lot - thank goodness. I know that many places have received much more than we did so I am thankful for that. But it is just a bummer that I go from wearing capris and chacos to turtlenecks and boots!! Oh well. What are you going to do? This week should warm up. I hope it does as we are having a baseball day on Thursday! That should be fun!!
For today's card I decided to combine two challenges. I took Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge and Techno Stamper's sketch challenge and put them together on one card. Here is my result! The colors seemed very springy/summery. Something that I have been having a lot of fun with is making the inverting triangle on my greetings. I read somewhere that you could take your arrow punch and punch the top part of the arrow out of the end of your cardstock! Now how easy is that? Another friend of mine said she uses her Photo Corners punch. I haven't tried that one yet. Give it a try. It's so easy!!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Best Wishes & More; Paper- Certainly Celery, Taken With Teal, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip designer paper; Ink- Certainly Celery, Taken With Teal; Accessories- Certainly Celery grosgrain, mini library clips, scallop border punch, circle punches, dimensionals
