Another Double Challenge

I would love to post everyday, but just can't quite get this together yet....but when I saw these challenges this week, giddy up and let's go ~ so the color challenge is from Stacey's Stampin Stage and the design challenge is from Stampin 411! Take a peek at my creation ~ hope you enjoy your time with me!

Here's a little peek of the right hand card top, after I used the blender pens to gently color this in (I love coloring!), I used Crystal Effects to give these hazel nuts some depth, I love how these turned out although it looks quite goofy in this picture ~ not a good likeness ~ stunning IRL!

After I heat embossed my leaves with Black EP, I used the Blender Pens to color in the Leaves and all the Hazel Nuts ~ used my Top Note Die twice to create the frame and stamped More Mustard on the smaller of the two (tone on tone)!

I really wasn't sure about this card, but in the end I am quite pleased with it ~ what do you think ~ is it too much ~ I just may teach this next week, I hope my girls like it!

And of course have to give you a little peek of two guests that come to visit the other day
A chiropractors patience and Jack Sparrow!
