Throwback Thursday Challenge


Ok, so this is the second challenge that I have ever entered and it is proving to be very fun.  I am entering this card into Emma's challenge from My Creative Time.  She challenged us to use the Wild Card cricut cartridge.  Since it feels like forever since I've used this cartridge, I was game!!  We also had to incorporate embossing.  I got out the brayer and inked up the zebra print sizziz folder (I actually think it might be tiger stripes, but works either way LOL) with Melon Mambo SU ink.  I guess I was moving the paper, but after three tries, I gave up on that technique.  I flipped on of the circles over and colored in the lines with my marker.  I'm pleased with how it turned out and using the marker actually made the pink a bit darker (which I like).  I also used my I-Rock tool with rhinestones on either side of the greeting.  If you want to enter the challenge, you have until tomorrow.  Happy creating!!  Thanks for looking!!!
