Okay, I thought I was going to wait a bit before posting more, but Izzy isn't heading upstairs for her nap yet, so I want to stay down for a while longer. She is feeling quite crummy, so there is a lot of relaxing going on. She did just say her ears hurts, so we might be makig a trip to the er later. Ear infections are no good at all :(

Onto the challenge, this was a combo as well. I used another of Nicole's fun WCMD country (Japan) challenges found here. It also ended up working great for the Moxie Fab gradient challenge. I am glad that got extended as I still have a few ideas I want to try.
Here is my card
Aren't Nicole's graphics AWESOME for her challenges? I was oddly drawn to the pink colors (not that pink is odd, it is just an odd choice for me, it must be Izzy rubbing off on me LOL). Also the middle picture with the writing. I really like how the black poped out.
I also think of very clasic lines when I think of Japan for some reason, so here is what I ended up with. It is going to be yet another anniversary card. I also got the technique for the background from Andrea here. The video is AWESOME and I adore learning all of these different ways to use the tools I already own. Now for a fun tip. I don't own a lot of SU craft ink and what I do own dosen't look or sound like hers when stamped, but I did the some colorbox chalk queue ink and it worked AWESOME for embossing. I think I am going to work on picking up more when it goes on sale.
It's a good life!
