With a few SCS Challenges under my belt, I feel like my craft has gone to a whole new level! I have always been such a CASEr (Copy And Steal Everything), and have only designed when I had to. These challenges are just what I needed to motivate me to design my own work! Of course, there are so many FABULOUS designers on SCS that provide so much inspiration! Special thanks to Chat Wszelaki (nitestamper on SCS), friend and fellow SU Demonstrator, for encouraging me to try the SCS Challenges! Chat is an incredible designer! Her work is just amazing! (I stalk her gallery!) See her SCS Gallery HERE.

Today's Color Challenge (CC121) was to use the colors PRETTY IN PINK, CHOCOLATE CHIP, AND OLD OLIVE. Here's my design for the SCS Color Challenge CC121:

I was thrilled that BUD BASICS stamp set and BASICS OUTLINE JUMBO WHEEL made it to the new catalog! They were first introduced in the Summer '06 Mini Catalog. The Bud Basics stamp set has been such a versatile set! Unfortunately, the Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon is no longer available in 1/4", and is now only available in 5/8". The Au Chocolate DP I used on this card didn't make into the new catalog either, but IS available in Red and Basic Grey.


Stamps: Bud Basics, Basic Outline Jumbo Wheel, Hugs & Wishes

Paper: Pretty In Pink, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Au Chocolate DP (retired 6/30/07)

Ink: Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive

Embellishments: Pink Circle Rhinestone Brads (Fire), Chocolate 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon

Tools: Horizontal Slot Punch, Scissors, 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch

Other Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Note: It's difficult to see in the photograph, but the small flower from the Bud Basics Stamp Set is stamped off in the background on the Very Vanilla CS. The Basic Outline Jumbo Wheel is stamped in Pretty In Pink on the right-hand side of the card, vertically, on Pretty In Pink CS.
