Sketch Challenge 200

It is hard to believe that this is the 200th sketch challenge on splitcoast stampers.  Wow they have been doing this challenge thing a while now.  Here is the card I chose to make for this challenge.  I am wanting to get a better feel for the tangerine tango color so worked exclusively with this color and whisper white as my neutral color.

STAMPIN UP SETS USED:  To have and to hold, Together Forever

COLORS:  Tangerine Tango and Whisper White

ACCESSORIES:  1 1/4 and 1 3/8 square punches, sponges, paper piercer, tangerine tango ribbon

Hope you like it.  Have a great evening.


CC190 and WSC63

Well I have been busy!  I started a new part time job on Monday and am loving it already.  This job I can make more money at even if I do love my hobby more.  It seems like it will be a great place to work, and it being close to home doesn’t hurt either.

Here is the card I got to make today, finally (think I was going into withdrawal).

I did a double challenge card again as I seem not to be having as much time for stamping for some reason. Hmm!

Color challenge on splitcoast this week was hard, pixie pink, tangerine tango, and kiwi kiss.  I also incorporated Beate’s weekend sketch challenge which I hate to miss. 

STAMPIN UP SETS USED:  Humor in High Heels

If you have any suggestions on how to improve this one I would love to hear it.  I am not sure about all that white space.
