Tuesday Morning Sketches and Pink Elephant challenges

I decided to use the same image for 2 challenges - I know a lot of folks try to make one card or project and submit it to as many challenges as they can. To me, though, part of the charm of participating in challenges is seeing how many different things I can come up with. So I used the same image, but made different cards.

This one is for the Tuesday Morning sketches challenge, which was a recipe challenge. The recipe was "one tag, one hidden message, and lots of glitter."
I used "Lush" from Whimsie Doodles - she's covered in Dazzling Diamonds glitter, the olives are colored with olive glitter and the martini has light blue glitter in the bottom of the glass:

Here is the "hidden message/tag" - I used brads to attach the image to the front of the card and embellished behind it with the tag/hidden message:
This is just another view:
Lastly - this is the plain old inside of the card:
The colors I used above are Stampin' Up! Regal Rose and Old Olive (also Whisper White).

This card below is for the Pink Elephant challenge, which was to make a winter or Christmas card. I went with the New Year's theme here, again using Lush from Whimsie Doodles, but changed up the colors a bit:

The colors on this one are Very Vanilla, Real Red, and Old Olive. I used Dazzling Diamonds glitter for Lushie (hee hee), olive glitter for the olives, and red glitter for the remainder of Lushie's martini.... LOL

Come back tomorrow for my entry for the Anyone for Anya challenge. :) Have a good Monday - it's a 3-day work week for me, and then I have ELEVEN blessed days off! WOO HOO!!!!!


  1. Love it! That image is just too funny! I love all the sparkle you added to the image too!

  2. That is one FUN image! Love how you blinged her up and the sentiment on the second card is fab! :>
