Featured Stamper for Color Throwdown #686

Yippie!!  I got asked to be a featured stamper for the Color Throwdown challenge that starts today!!  #ctd686  Today begins a new challenge using sage green, purple, and cream.  This color combo along with the photo made me think of Stampin Up's Flowering Cactus.  Thanks to the Color Throwdown team for including me as a featured stamper.  We hope you will join the fun and play along with us...come on over!!
This card was also inspired by the sketch challenge from the Try Stampin On Tuesday blog.  Their sketch also called for "something punny".  So I picked the "life can get kinda prickly" sentiment from the Flowering Cactus set.  Thanks to the TSOT team for another fun challenge.  #TSOT548

Card # 2 was inspired by 1 challenge...
A game board challenge!!  My winning three in a row run diagonally across the card...die cut (the sentiment), free (embossed panel), gold (foil card stock used for sentiment).  This combination made for a great sympathy card that I was needing for a friend

Sea You Soon...

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

Addicted to CAS // #216 ...A code word challenge!! WATER is the word for this current challenge.  I think of waves when I think of water...maybe that is because I live in Florida.

Less Is More // #LIM460 ...A recipe challenge!!  Use a bit of bling as an ingredient!!  I picked some blue rhinestones that I had hidden in my stash.

Update:  This card was chosen by the design team over at Addicted to CAS as the CAS Perfectionist!!  Yahoo!!  What an honor!!  Here is what they had to say about this card...."I love all the detail Deb has packed into this small grouping - the textured sea, the way the whale is bursting out of frame, the beautiful blues, and the punny sentiment! A really lovely card!"
