Overboard on so many levels....

A) This post includes 3 challenges 1) Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, 2) Color Inspiration #158 from Stamping 411: Real Red, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Peach Parfait and 3) CAS challenge at Splitcoast using a Play on Words.

This may not look clean and simple - but it didn't take much to make - strips of paper and punches.

B) Four different punches used: Two-Step Bird, Scallop Circle and 2 sizes of circle punches

C) Three different embossing folders - I don't think I've ever used that many on one card! The back strips were a given - I always had that planned - alternating the embossing was just an experiment I ended up liking. Once I made the layered strip across the card, I just HAD to see what happened when I put it through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Folder! I just love how it takes the layered look away. The polka dot embossed circle was just a way of getting away from a plain piece of paper.

So - what a way to end the day. Bright and full of fun! The instruments are on the stage, everyone knows what they are SUPPOSE to do. We'll see what happens at the rehearsal Tuesday. Good thing tomorrow is Color Dare......I already know what's coming up!

Thanks for taking time to stop by for a visit.
