Snowboard triple challenge



Today's splitcoast challenge was to use stunning black silhouettes. I thought briefly about not using one of my new EXTREME stamps, but I couldn't resist.

I found a great sketch at Pals Paper Arts that I thought I'd use today (less thinking about layout!)

I just LOVE this color combination from this great color challenge site - Create, Ink! ColorLab. The colors this week reminded me of my retired Cottage Wall designer series paper and I dug thru my stash and found a few scraps! I don't know if I've ever used so many large pieces of patterned paper on my card before! I figure it's time to use them. The colors are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz and white! One of the patterned paper is from Greehouse Gala and one is from the In Color hostess pack.




To make my silhouette stunning I thought I would emboss with black and then cut it out and pop it up.

I decided to make this card specifically for my sister-in-law's birthday coming up in March. She loves snowboarding and she also loves flowers, so that's why I used the flower pattern.

The sentiment is the new hostess set "Something to Celebrate"
