Best Wishes Duo Challenge


Hi Everyone!

For today's card I decided to combine two challenges once again. It's been quite a while since I've been able to do a MMSC challenge. The sketch looked fairly safe and simple, so I decided to give it a whirl. The card also meets the SCS color challenge today to use Sahara Sand, Crushed Curry and Real Red. Never thought that I'd use Curry as much as I have the last couple of days! Anyhow, this is what I came up with. It's fairly simple, although I did have a difficult time trying to decide on the stamp I wanted to use in the middle. In the end, I chose to use the "Best Wishes" stamp from SU's Oval All set. The two squares in the middle are from the Curly Labels 1 Nestabilities set. One cut out in Sahara Sand and then the next layer cut out in Real Red. The pattern on the Sahara Sand piece is from Martha Stewart. The card base is actually Sahara Sand, though it's hard to tell by the picture.
That's it for me, I hope you like it. I'm going to try to post again tomorrow; but not sure if I'm going to be able to. If not, have a Merry Christmas and I'll be back for sure on Monday.
