Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge - A Recipe

A new Designer's Choice Challenge from Repeat Impressions begins today, and I think you'll like it! The challenge was chosen by Karen, and it's a recipe - use a stamped image, embossing and a die cut or punch. One random winner for the month will win a full sheet of unmounted rubber of their choice! You have almost two weeks to create your card and link it up to the RI blog. You can find all the details and the creations by the Design Team on the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built. You can also follow these links to the Rock Stars' blogs:

For my card, I used a Cuttlebug folder for the embossing. I used Birthday Cupcake, available on this page, for my image. I colored with Copics and used Stickles on the frosting. My punch is the tiny flower, to which I added tiny gems. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions - I stamped it in a straight line instead of two lines, like it comes. I matted with Pale Plum cardstock from Stampin' Up!

There is still almost another week to participate in last week's WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch challenge, too. You can find those details here. The prize for that challenge is a $25 gift certificate.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

This is a super card, Lynette. If I was shopping for cards (instead of making them) and saw this, I'd buy it!

I just wanted to stop by and say hi and tell you what an great job you did on your DCC card! I keep so busy commenting on all the SAS4Kids cards as well as running the challenge, I rarely have time to visit and comment on other cards. But this is CAS and lovely, so just had to visit and say so!
