Mojo Monday 1/13, CCMC 1/16, SUO 1/14 Challenge 

I decided to do another FIVE challenges this week, but I am posting for three tonight because of the deadline; the others I will post tomorrow. You can click on the title of each challenge to go to the challenge page.

"This week our challenge is to make a paper crafting project (card or any other kind of project) that includes or uses some new Stampin' Up! product(s) that you have."

Here is my finished product...


- Very Vanilla Cardstock (2 1/2 x 2 1/2)
- Perfect Plum Cardstock  (2 3/4 x 2 3/4)
- Smoky Slate Cardstock (3 1/2 x 4 3/4)
- Island Indigo Cardstock  (8 1/2 x 11)

Stamp Sets:
Perfect Pennants*

Just a few things that may not be obvious just by looking at the card:

- The little circles around the edge of the Smoky Slate card stock are stamped in Smoky Slate, Perfect Plum, Island Indigo.
- The center piece with the sentiment is popped up on dimensionals.

Hope you enjoy!
