This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Faux Burnt Edges. I still had a strip of last Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Faux Denim and I used it because I wanted to do another card using Saturday's OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE - Sketch. My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Pacific Tango Summer that I was guest host for Emily while she spends some valuable time with hubby before he has to leave to serve his country.
I have had some stamped images of Carrie for awhile now (got them from Shannon) and needed to use them up so she will stamp me some more. LOL. Carrie was perfect for today's TLC and the color combo as well. I did the faux burnt edges on my main panel and the sentiment panel and popped the senitment up. I agree with Lynn in that the torn edge layer looks so much better. I am such a pack rat, while cleaning my stamp room this morning I found a stack of In-Color ribbon that I had forgotten I had so I had to use it today too. How did I do?

Wonderful creation and great job on the challenge.
