Never Been Used


Card #1 inspired by 2 challenges...

CAS Colours & Sketches // #497 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was perfect for playing with the birdie from my new Tim Holtz die that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby this past week.

This card was picked as a "top 3" by the CAS Colours & Sketches design team!!  What an honor!!  Thanks to the team for a shout out on this card.

Challenge #44
NBUS Challenge // #NBUS44 ...A new stuff challenge!!  So this card along with card #2 in this post both qualify for this challenge because I am using a new die set freshly pulled out of the packaging.  I have been eyeing this die for a while now so when I saw it on the clearance rack I had to snag it up!!

Card #2 inspired by 2 challenges...

Color Throwdown // #ctd720 ...A color challenge!!  Kraft, Copper, Sage, and Black are the colors called for in this challenge!! 
Kraft: sentiment and accents on the bear 
Copper: mat layer, mug accent and scarf 
Sage: ink used to stamp forest background
Black: bear and ink for the sentiment

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS563 ...A sketch challenge!!  Fun cute sketch that was perfect for playing with my new dies.  I did cut the feet off of the bear to make him more round that oval so that he would match the sketch better.
