Triple Threat!!


Welcome, I can sing and I do dance, a little, but I don't know if I'm ready for Broadway! So, it's not that kind of triple threat!! Well, I really stretched my stamping capabilities this morning! I went challenge-seeking this morning, and I landed on Splitcoast. Well, the limited supply challenge this morning is called International Flair (LSC225), and you need to use a foreign language somewhere on your card.
Guess what? I have all of two stamps/sets that have foreign language on it. I have a Merry Christmas in Swedish stamp (God Jul), and I have Carte Postale by Stampin' Up (I think there will probably be a lot of cards made with this set today!). I wasn't in the mood for Christmas, so I went with Carte Postale. Second hurdle was that I wanted to use the Color Throwdown #47 colors on it. Well, for some reason, those colors don't go with this stamp set, at least not in my mind. However, I was not going to back down from a challenge, so I went with it!! Here is what you have!! The sketch is this week's sketch on SCS, #233. Whoa, that's a lot for me...my brain can't take anymore!!
Card Details:
Stamps: Carte Postale by Stampin' Up
Paper: Pink Flamingo DSP, Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral and Kiwi Kiss by Stampin' Up
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Making Memories ribbon slide; Angel Wings Shimmerz; SU ribbon; Pearl stickers; Cuttlebug Embossing folder
