Welcome to Day 3 of the 2013 Artisan Design Team Finalists Blog Hop! If you have been following the last two days you may have noticed the same thing I have! These projects are amazing! I hope you are enjoying seeing these fabulous projects as much as I have!

I have another card today that I submitted for the Artisan Design Team contest. This one is wayyyyy outside the box for me! I am more of a vintage, shabby chic girl and the bright colors I used here are not my usual color palette. I love how this turned out though, I think I need to work outside of my comfort zone more often 🙂
Highlights: I embossed Strawberry Slush with the Chevron Embossing Folder and then I smeared it a bit with Whisper White Craft Ink. I also heat embossed some of the Mosaic Madness stamp set images on Strawberry Slush Cardstock and on some of the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper in White. After punching some of these images out with the Mosaic Punch, I adhered some of them flat and popped some up with dimensionals. The perfect finishing touch was the White Tea Paper Doily. I told you I can hardly create anything these days without adding one or two of those to the project!
I wish I had a better picture of this one…I guess I am happy that I have a picture at all!
