SCS COLOR CHALLENGE CC132 and SKETCH CHALLENGE SC142

This week, I combined two SCS challenges, Color Challenge 132 and Sketch Challenge 142. The color challenge was to use the colors of CHOCOLATE CHIP, REALLY RUST, and RIVER ROCK. I used the Horizontal Slit Punch to punch a hole for the ribbon to thread through. My apologies for the distorted photo ... I just have a heck of a time getting good photos ... especially when River Rock is involved! Love the color, dislike photographing it!

To update you on my previous post regarding Dottie K .... I found her! She responded to the post quickly, and we've been conversing via e-mail. She has a great sense of humor, and is a scrapbooker and a card maker! I'm trying to talk her into sharing her work with us through SCS gallery or blog! Let's hope she starts soon!

Here is the sketch for SC142:


RECIPE
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Paper: Apple Cider DP, Chocolate Chip, River Rock, and Very Vanilla CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, and River Rock Classic Ink Pads
Embellishments: Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Pumpkin Circle Rhinestone Brad
Tools: Ticket Corner Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch, 1 3/8" Square Punch
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals
