VSD #4 Challenge

I have several posts today so don't forget to scroll down!

The blog group I am in had some challenges this weekend. Here are two cards that I was able to make. The first one was posted by Terria and the challenge was supposed to be a summer card and you had to use your Cricut. I had this sun that I made for a previous swap. It always pays to make extra! I think the cartridge used was Life is a Beach. Also just for fun I am entering the card in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge blog where you needed to use stripes some how on your creation and the Stampin' B's Summer Fun Theme.

The second card I made was posted by April. The challenge was to use acetate. I just happen to have a package that I bought but was afraid to use! I embossed the card with my Cuttlebug using the Happy Birthday embossing folder. I also wanted to use this for Melina's challenge and that was a color challenge with a twist. The twist was that the card had to be masculine. So I hope this works! I didn't have the SU! colors but I think I was close enough. I am also entering this in the Practical Scrappers challenge for using a border punch and All Sorts challenge for embossing.

I've got a color challenge for you with a theme twist...

Your colors are:

Chocolate Chip

More Mustard

Old Olive

Basic gray

Very Vanilla

It is difficult to see the embossing but if you click on the picture to make it bigger it is easier to see!
