Two Two Two Challenges in One!

Okay, I will say, I SOOO love the sketches over at Try Stampin On Tuesday...  they are always so clean, but allow for you to really challenge yourself!  I learned a new technique watching a video last week by Frenchie, and couldn't wait to try it, so when I saw this week's sketch, I was rarin' to go...  the sketch is on the right!

Also, I am a "regular" (or at least as often as I can get there) morning chatter at Butternut Sage Designs.  If you have never been to this site (let alone this chat), you are completely missing out.  The women who are often there are the most kind-hearted, generous, and creative collection of women I think I have ever met in one place maybe in my life.  Best of all, you are all invited...  Go to the site above, and join the chat one morning.  You will be happy you did...  To get back on task here....  we do a bi-weekly challenge at Butternut Sage Designs, and this week it is "Make your own DSP" (for those of you who are not Stampin' Up demonstrators (and why aren't you??  Join now!), DSP is Designer Series Paper, which is what we call our printed papers... This card should work for both challenges:

In case you are keeping score, the colors I used to make my DSP are: (from bottom to top) So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Cajun Craze, and Chocolate Chip.  The leaves and the sentiment are stamped in Early Espresso!
As always, thanks for stopping in!  If you want to learn this technique, or any of the other things you've seen here on my blog, please email me and I will add you to our class list!  See one, do one, teach one!
