SCS Color and Sketch Challenges - CC247 & SC257

Good morning!  I have two cards for you today... the first one is for Tuesday's color challenge (Very Black Suede), using Very Vanilla, Basic Black, and Soft Suede.  There was also a "dessert" to the challenge - to use bling/glitz in any color.  Take a look!

I love the way that Bermuda Bay pops with the other "toned down" colors, and the addition of glitz was very easy to do.  I turned the Medallion stamp over so that the rubber was facing up, then applied VersaMark ink to the stamp.  Next I applied Bermuda Bay Classic ink, then placed my cardstock over to stamp.  After a sprinkle of Iridescent Ice embossing powder and some heating.. tada!  A beautiful sparkly medallion!

This next card is for the SCS sketch challenge SC257.  What a great layout!  I tend to follow sketches pretty closely..

I love this set!  And it coordinates beautifully with Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions embossing folder.  The embossing folder isn't just for the holidays though, as the gorgeous design could simply be flowers.  And that ribbon?  Love it!  Cotton ribbon is so fun to play with, and so easy to tie!
