Splitcoaststampers Challenges!!!

I have wanted to find the time to stamp since Sunday morning when I saw the Featured Stamper Challenge over on SCS, but the cards were stacked against me! (No pun intended...lol!) Becca is one talented card maker! Then Monday's SCS Technique Challenge intrigued me (more inspiration from Becca), but I didn't have the correct kind of punch for the technique. I fixed that problem last night when I went to the new Michaels that just opened in the area. I was able to get this punch and it worked like a charm to create Becca's circle medallion. My Stampin' Up order came today along with some of the new In-Colors (and Crazy for Cupcakes) that were in today's SCS Color Challenge so I had to give that a try too. However, I was so excited about using my new colors that after I finished the card, I realized that I was to use Pretty in Pink and I accidently went with Pink Pirourette...oops! I'm still happy with the way it all came together though. My inspiration was this card from Becca and the video to make Becca's medallion can be found here. My details include a Riding Hood Red faux button with a paper thread of Kiwi Kiss. The three little Riding Hood Red faux brads were made from a hole punch. My Swiss Dots embossing folder and a piece of white grosgrain ribbon complete this card. Thanks so much for stopping by this evening...Toodles! :D
