Hopefully it's still Wednesday in America

I know the USA is behind us (in time) & thought we'd been given an extra day BUT in reality Janet posted the SBS challenge #4 a day earlier, not that we could post our entries a day late. I think they close on a Wednesday, which is why I hope it's still Wednesday in America even though it's Thursday in NZ.

Well to cut a long story short the latest challenge from my blogging sister Janet was to create a birthday card with 2 embellishments on it - tough eh!! We got an extra point if we used her colour combo of Real Rust, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black & Old Olive. You can see Janet's card HERE.

Well in my very limited crafting time this week I could not get this combo to work but have used 2 of the 4 colours, 2 embellishments (ribbon & silver brads) & eek last stuff up - nearly a birthday card, though sure I can push the boundary with the saying friendship.

So I may be late & may be got 3/4 of the challenge requirements but it was a quickie & I've blogged another day.

Stamp set/s: Petal Prints, Wonderful Words
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Blush Blossom, Old Olive marker
Card stock:Elegant Eggplant, Blush Blossom, Very Vanilla
Other: Silver brads, dimensionals, 1/2" circle punch for ticket corners, olive organza - retired :-(

CYA all tomorrow - happy stampin' until then.

Lovely simple and elegant card. Hey at least you attempted the challenge - I haven't found time to do any yet.

It's a gorgeous card Karen. I was late with my card too and forgot to use the correct colours so you were closer than I at getting the challenge correct.
