Blogger's Challenge #73: Baja Chocolate YUM!


Our challenge was a fun and simple one: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and either Whisper White or Very Vanilla. I went with the white and the rest, is history!

I began with Say it With Scallops. Money from the sale of EACH set goes to the Ronald McDonald House Charities! I inked the entire stamp with Baja Breeze, then used my Blender Pen to remove the color from the star, exclamation point and the O and used the Chocolate Chip marker to reink just those colors. This is a neat solution for the In-Colors as we don't have markers for those (BUMMER!) I punched it out with the coordinating Scallop Square punch.

I used a scrap from the Ski Slope DSP from the Holiday Mini catty. After adding a few swirls from Priceless, another fab set, I put all of the layers together and added a mini library clip to cap it off!

I just know that there are going to be AWESOME projects from the other members so remember to click on the Blogger's Challenge on my sidebar and see what they were up to!

Great job on this one Lisa. That little mini clip is just adorable sitting there holding your sentiment. The swirls remind me of today, where it's quite breezy outside and the leaves are swirling all over the yard. Very pretty card...
