Feast or Famine

**This is my second post of the day.  Please scroll down for my CAS-ual Fridays post**


It really is feast or famine around here.  No posts for days and then 2 in one go.  Typical!  This is a dual challenge card using embossing for the Lawnscaping challenge and the colour palette from the Paper Players challenge.  Pretty self explanatory I think so I won't spell it all out except to say that the letters are in the order of the letters on the keyboard.  Yes, I am a geek.  A geek who is off to make another batch of the chunky twix cookies she discovered on Kirsty's blog today.  You must try them - they are amazing!!!  (If I'm gonna get fatter I'm taking you all down with me!!!)


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Rich Razzleberry, Basic Grey, Old Olive) Stampin' Up, (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Image  & sentiment from Just My Type, Letters from Smitty's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Ink:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Old Olive (Stampin' Up)
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Impression Plate:  PTI
Die:  (Nestabilities Standard Circles Large) Spellbound
Corner Punch:  Marvy Uchida
