Doubly Challenged!

I saw that my good stampin' buddy Liz had joined in this cool blog hop/challenge, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon! The sketch came from Mary Jo Price-Williams of Technostamper. I loved this sketch because it's such a clean and simple look!

So while I was decided what stamps to use, I figured why not combine this Sketch Challenge with the SUO Challenge this week? And so I did - their challenge was to show what you're doing with Sale-A-Bration sets! That helped me decide to use the Sweet Summer SAB set, which I absolutely Love, by the way!!

Here's a close up of the flowers all cut out and watercolored, and touched with Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink.

And here's a close up of the banner (cut out from the Petal Cone Big Shot die), with a little bit of Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding scrunched under it. The "for you" comes from the Say it Simply set in the Mini catalog - love that little set, two sayings for $7.95!! Such a bargain!

As I was writing all this, I realized this can be a Triple Challenge - I think I'll enter this in Shelli Gardner's Challenge for this month too - What you're doing with Sale-A-Bration.

Thanks for stopping by,


Here are the other participants in TSSC 162 Challenge:
