Sleeping all day...

...brings back my mojo a little!  I have really missed participating in some of my favorite challenges, so I decided to make a card to combine them all!  And I'm literally just under the wire for one of them...

Here's my card~

Details~


For these fabulous challenges~


(I don't have a "blog header" so I was inspired by my blog design)
 


So, this was really fun to make!  And I got to use some stamps that really needed to see the light of day.  I started by scoring some lines for my colored strip, masked them off, sponged on More Mustard ink, added the Crumb Cake brocade pattern, added a sentiment with Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip, and then unmasked it.  I decided to add more score lines and a bit of bling.  Voila!  I LOVE IT!!!

Thanks for taking the time to come a take a peek!  I LOVE having you here and am so grateful for each of you!  Please come and join in these fun challenges--I LOVE seeing your creations, too!  Happy stamping! :)
