6/22 Combining Challenges!

I made a quick card today so that I could dive into some new, uninked rubber! Full of Life, a delightful sentiment set that I've had my eye on for a long time and Lovely Letters . . . so lovely as you can see . . . are two of the free sets I received from Stampin'Up for Sale-a-bration Rewards. This card also uses a Sneak Peak set from the upcoming catalog called Circle Circus.
I combined two challenges to create this card because I didn't want to "think" too hard. I've got a lot on my plate today so I have to "hurry up and create!" Not my preferred way to stamp, but better than not stamping at all! lol!
.
The first challenge I checked in on was a Color Challenge that you can read about HERE. It's been quite a long time since I've done a KWerner Color Challenge. I was excited to try this one because I would be able to incorporate a few Sneak Peak In Colors from SU that are debuting on July 1. That rusty orange color is called Dusty Durango, and I used Crushed Curry for the mustard color.
And, of course one of my FAVORITE challenges is the Mojo Monday Challenge. You can see that I added some big faux brads along the bottom. These came from the Circle Circus set punched out with the 1/2" Circle Punch.
