Moving Forward with Mixed Melody

I titled this card MOVING FORWARD with MIXED MELODY because I couldn’t think of anything else witty… I got to say that when I originally selected the challenges to make today’s card I thought it would be a breeze, MAN was I wrong!!
So the colors that I used as my inspiration were Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke, two colors I NEVER use!  I thought it would be a great PUSH to make something that I normally would shy away from- which I think is a great thing to do every once in a while! I have to say that I really like the texture I added to the flag strip, after I embossed it with the SQUARE LATTICE embossing folder I distressed it with some white craft ink and it adds some nice variation to the layers.
I loved the sketch that I used for today’s card and the best part of this card (in my opinion) is the sentiment image- I used the NEW SILVER STAMPIN’ DAZZLE MARKER!!  You not only can write with it, but you can use it to ink up your stamps too!!  SO LOVE THAT!!!  Here are the challenges that I used for today’s card~
Here is what I used to create today’s card:
ARE YOU GETTING READY FOR HALLOWEEN?! I have a few sneak peeks for you of just a few of the projects that we will be creating in the October Specialty Class- GHOULISH GOOGLIES!!
Ghoulish stamp set, class projects, cards, 3-D projects
This is going to be such a FUN class, you will get to make two 3-D items and 2 cards (that are SUPER easy to duplicate) in this class and the best part is that you get ALL the supplies you need to create these projects in the cost of the class!!  Be on the LOOKOUT for even more details to come soon- SAVE THE DATE for this class- OCT. 6TH from 2-5 PM – registration will begin this weekend!!
