I’m having a lot of fun with the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers. They had three challenges on World Card-making Day (Oct. 2nd) and a single challenge every day since then and it continues through Oct. 31st. There’s a bunch of great prizes. Plus, all the cards go to MD Anderson for the encouragement of cancer patients. I have two cards to share today.
This first card is for the Unsentimental Challenge, HYCCT03. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #159. I was especially inspired by Wendy Bond’s take on the sketch, but unfortunately my image was a little too large to follow her take completely. I also used Mo’s Digital Pencil Challenge #52 to make a rainbow card. The design team had each been given a single color of the rainbow to use, so I decided to choose shades of pink (for breast cancer awareness) for my rainbow card. I am extremely pleased with how this card turned out.
Stamps: Mo’s Digital Pencil Between
Cardstock: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red
Designer Paper: Stampin’ Up Raspberry Tart

The second card I made today for the Four by Four Challenge, HYCCT04 to make a card with four layers and four different embellishments. I used The Sweet Stop Sketch #77. The Sweet Stop sketches are all about layers, so I knew I could count on it for my four layers. I almost didn’t have four different embellishments, but I added the heart twinkle sticker to the sentiment, so with that, the brads, the flowers, and the buttons I have four different embellishments. I’m not as happy with this second card as the first, but I’m not used to using that many designer papers on one card.
