Masculine Upsy Daisy

I have been sorting through my desk and taking the lazy way out - making cards with the 'bits' rather than put them away - this way I am getting some UFO's finished...this embossed Upsy Daisy has been sitting on my desk since the last one I posted, so I thought I would do something with it - then I saw the sketch for the Creative Inspiration Challenge and came up with this card...as I have used both wet and dry embossing it also is for the StampinB Challenge and the Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS requires corrugated card on our card - so yay - a triple challenge card today!!

I love these colours and had just been using these papers for another card, so that made it even better!! I used the Fiskar Texture Plate for the lower panel, it made it look more like a canvas, it is the first time I have used the one, but I think it is going to be a favourite!! The corrugated card is left over from another challenge months ago...just a couple of thin torn pieces...I keep everything if I think I am going to use it again...someday I guess I will have to do a big sort out BUT in the meantime I will find as much use for it as I can!! Each layer is mounted onto black CS to make it stand out. I have enjoyed combining these challenges, it gives more boundaries to work within and makes it a bigger challenge. Surprisingly enough for me, the only edges I sponged are the edges of the circle, the rest of the EDGES are CLEAN!!!

That is it for me with this card...it is Friday night and we are having 'Family Night' and going to watch...Just like Heaven....my girls chose it - my DS NOT so keen - as they are getting older it is harder to find a movie they all like!!

Thank you for visiting - please leave a comment so I know you have been, I would hate to have missed you - don't forget to come again!! I hope your weekend is a good one, whatever you are doing! God bless you!
