Don't you love it when...

...the ideas just keep coming? Today was one of those days! Thank you, God! And don't you love it when you can combine multiple challenges to just get tons and tons of ideas? The most I've ever combined was three. Some people can combine like ten or more challenges. I take my hat off to you, ladies! I have two combinations with a bunch of cards today and I'm proud to show them off you you!

I got big inspiration from two challenge blogs: The Friday Mashup's theme challenge and Stamping 411 sketch challenge. I start close and then branch out my ideas. Watch how they evolve!

This one starts with a base of Old Olive. Next layer Bashful Blue, next layer retired DSP. The smaller panel is blue topped with Whispering White. Next I have olive ribbon. I was going to use my stamp set and stamp apples, but instead I punched out apples from the DSP. Next I put circles of blue and one of Pumpkin Pie. Next I used the Teeny Tiny Punches with the "thanks so much" sentiment. Then I used the jewelry tag punch to punch sold blue, olive, and pumpkin. I stuck those one with a stampin' dimensional.

Thanks for looking!
