*Another Sketch Challenge*

Thanks to everyone who sent me well wishes for my headache yesterday. I think the combination of a lot of Advil and finally a Diet Coke (and the caffeine) at lunch kicked the headache. I think it was either a really bad bad headache or a mild-ish migraine. It sucked, whatever it was.

Had a quiet Friday night around here... one kid off watching a movie, another with a friend for a sleepover. Husband and I doing our things on computers until we could steal the TV from the kids when they went to bed. We had been invited to a house party but I don't think either of us was really feeling in the mood.

Anyway.... on to today's card.

This is another card I did a week or so ago when I was challenging myself to do a bunch of the Sketch Challenges at Splitcoast. I was working on them from the last one that was posted and I guess working backwards. This is Sketch Challenge #119. I also managed to use one of the Colour Challenges as well but I didn't write that information down. The colours are Old Olive, Vintage Violet and Certainly Celery with some Whisper White thrown in to the mix.

I really love the idea for the tag that Asela came up with using the scalloped square punch. I only have the giga scalloped punches and the mega non scalloped punches... maybe I need to be getting the mega scallops too.... hmmmmm If anyone wants to send me a birthday present next month, I'm open to it LOL!!!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Vintage Violet
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Vintage Violet, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
*Images: Stampin' Up! and A*Muse
*Embellishments: Stampin' Up! Black Brads
*Tools: Marvy Giga Scalloped Square Punch

Great colors together. I like the Sketch challenges for a little inspiration when I seem to use the same layout over and over.
