Challange Card

Okay this is my challenge card that my sister Sandi challenged me to make.  My challenge was to do a Ronda Wade card, simple, quick to demonstrate and easy, all very hard for me.  I was to use all current Stampin Up products, one bling, and one emblosslit folder and had to be posted on my blog by Sunday. I think it was Friday when I was challenged. Well it did not start off too good because I gave my big book to a customer to look at over the weekend. I thought no problem I had an idea already.  WRONG!! All the stamps were not current...bumber. Then after many calls to Sandi I had a choice of five stamp sets that I had not used yet.  Next I had not written down the new colors yet so had to search out what were the current colors.  Man I do not like this being plugged down to a limited idea plan.......Well after a whole bunch of behind the scenes legwork this is what I came up with... not my normal kind of card.  I could not make up my mind on the colors which do you like better?

  1. Wow Kathleen, absolutely beautiful cards!! I love the vintage feel to them and how you inked your Embossing Folder with the Soft Suede (yes, I noticed that!). The bird was the perfect WOW to make it a Ronda WOW card -- simple but gorgeous. Now this is what I am talking about -- I knew you had it in you to do simple. As far as which one I liked best, I really can't say as I love both, but my immediate first thought was the solid Soft Suede. Thanks Kathy, it was worth the wait!!

  2. DOUBLE WOW!! I love both cards, Kathleen. That was so nice of Sandi to give you a challenge, right? Boy, I better stay clear of her, never know what she will come up for me. LOL Great job and I hope you do some more like these.
