I took some time to do a couple of challenges

I decided that I would take a little time tonight and make a card for two challenges at GinaK Designs. I love the Hoodie set Just so Sporty by Melanie Muenchinger, sold at GinaK Designs.

I have always liked making black and white cards but I usually add a splash of red with it. This card was for two challenges on the GinaK Designs forum on Splitcoast Stampers. The first challenge Day 2 was to have something on your card "off kilter" I made my background cut at an angle thus satisfying the off kilter challenge.

The challenge for Day4 was to make a black and white card. I have had this cute dp that I got in a package of papers at Target. I colored the hoodie from the Just So Sporty set, stamped Thank U, sponged the edge with basic grey, and mounted on black card stock. I added a piece of black and white checked ribbon to the bottom of the main image. I added a black brad to one of the sateen flowers also available at GinaK Designs and my two challenges are complete in one card.

I have really missed doing the GinaK challenges but most of all I have missed having the money to buy her stamps, sigh, deep sigh! I know that there will be a new release next week and I am trying to budget a little so I can get at least one new set but we will have to see.

Be sure to check out my weekly post on Artistic Outpost. Wednesday is my designated day to add my projects to their blog site. Check it out sometime.

Goodnight,

Cathy
