For Jellypark Challenges, the challenge this week is to make the SENTIMENT KEY. I liked this....so here's what I came up with:
Here's a closer look at the sentiment and stamp from Close to My Heart "A Chocolate Affair" set.

Since I wanted the sentiment to take center stage, I layered different shades of brown. I kept the embellies simple, again to keep the sentiment key. The ribbon and gems are from Recollections.

Creative Knockouts Challenge #3- Texturize it!

For Creative Knockouts Challenge #3, the theme this week is TEXTURIZE IT!
We want to see dry/heat embossing, textured papers, embossing folders...anything that you use to add texture to your creations!
Our lovely sponsor this week is:

We had beautiful images supplied to us and I got to work with Earth Mother.

Here's my card for this week:


I colored the image with SN Markers. I went with another favorite color combo- Purple and Green. Since it was TEXTURE theme, I embossed the base card with Polka Dots EF from Embossalicious and inked it with turquoise pigment ink from Color Box. I then stamped areas with Versamark and heat embossed it with Eggplant Pearl EP from Recollections.  I then used netting to add more texture to my card. I layered that with Turquoise CS embossed with Grunge Stripe EF from  Craft  Concepts and stamped the raised outlines with turquoise ink.  I layered that with another turquoise CS embossed in Circles EF from Cuttlebug, which was heat embossed with Kaleidoscope EP from Stamp N Stuff.

Still with me? ;o) I then layered the image with Turquoise and Purple textured CS from American Crafts with pop dots.

Here's a closer look at the image:
