SSSC 153 and LNS 162

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic weekend! I can't believe how fast it has gone for us! Becky and I have been having a blast visiting with our friend Sherry! Yesterday was a FULL day of shopping at various wool and quilt stores and stamp stores! I think I controlled myself pretty well. But it was sure fun to see Becky go nuts!! And we even got Sherry excited about wool, too! So she has several projects to start and even inquired about classes at the local stores! Go Sherry! We even picked a project that we are going to work on together. Guess that means I will have to visit more often!

Today's card was inspired from a sketch by Karen Giron. I also combined it with the challenge at LNS which is to go green. And I did use the green on this one! My card base is Lucky Limeade. Then I adhered a piece of Lucky Limeade designer paper to a piece of Basic Black. Then I took a piece of Basic Black and ran it through the Big Shot using the Houndstooth embossing folder and adhered it to the designer paper. I took some strips of Basic Black and ran them through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die and adhered them to the panel. Then I added two black brads and adhered the whole panel to the card base. My focal point is a 2 1/2" punched circle of Lucky Limeade that has the splatter stamped from Extreme Elements in Lucky Limeade. I also stamped the car from Need for Speed in black StazOn and then stamped the car again on a scrap of Lucky Limeade in black StazOn. I used my Lucky Limeade marker to highlight some of the lines on the car and then popped it up on the circle. I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in black StazOn and then popped the circle onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
