Hi blog friends!

Today we're being challenged by Repeat Impressions Rock Star Karen to make a card using 3 elements: (1) a stamped image, (2) Embossing and (3) Die cut or punch.
Here's my card -
This card would make a great graduation card for a young man or even perhaps for someone who has achieved a pilot's license. 
The image is from the new stamp set "Big Boys Toys" and looks very much like my husband's aircraft, (his big boy toy) and I even colored it with Copic marker BG10, to make it resemble his plane.  I sponged some Memento "Blue Sky" ink for a cloud back ground.  After die cutting the frame and then the image with Spellbinder Diamond shape dies they were adhered together and then embossed with a diamond ef from CB.  The bg dp is from MME, "Lost & Found" 6x6 Designer Pad.  The card stock is from GKD Pure Luxury line; Kraft, Black Onyx, White and Lipstick Red. 

We hope you'll join us in playing along with Karen's Challenge.  Once you've created your project and linked it to your blog or online posting site, head on over to The House That Stamps Built and post your link there.  You'll be entered to win Repeat Impression stamps.  If you use a Repeat Impression stamp, you'll be entered twice! 

Please visit the rest of the Rock Stars as they showcase their cards using Karen's challenge.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll play along with us!

I just wanted to stop by and say hi and tell you what an awesome 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 lovely, so just had to visit and say so!
