LSC226 - "Chinese Take Out" - 06/26/09
LSC226 – Chinese Take Out

Ya know how when you order Chinese Take Out that you basically get to order a la carte?? Well, THAT’S what we are doing with today’s challenge. I am giving you three “menus” below, and your challenge is to pick one item from each menu, then combine them to make your card!!

Oh!! And before I forget . . . we are keeping to a “masculine” theme as well . . . cards for little guys, cards for big guys . . . let’s hear it for the boys!! No girly stuff!! (That would be lace borders, frilly ribbon, etc.)

Menu #1 – Images (just pick one item from each menu!)
1. Planes, Trains, & Automobiles – basically anything with locomotion (this would include boats, too!)
2. Non-floral Nature
3. Neutral Images (stuff that isn’t girly, for sure) . . . I used a clock . . .

Menu #2 – Color Schemes (are ya still with me, friends??)
1. Reds/Blues
2. Greens/Browns
3. Neutrals

Menu #3 – Embellishments (this is where it can get tricky!)
1. Ribbon & Brads OR Eyelets (tie masculine KNOTS instead of girly BOWS)
2. Diecuts/Punches & Embossing Folders/Texture Plates
3. Natural Fibers & Hardware (hodpodge, charms, etc.)

(Watch those AND's and OR's in the embellishments!)

Sayonara and good luck!!

Here are my samples:

Choo Choo in Red & Blue

Time to Get Better

And here is one from Karen (imastampin), as she is the one who helped inspire me with this idea today!

You now have examples using EVERYTHING on each list . . . can't wait to see what y'all come up with!!

Good challenge, Wendy. I have a question about your ANDs and ORs in the embellishments. The first choice is where my question lies.

Is the choice: Ribbon & Brads . . . . OR . . . just Eylets;

or is the choice Ribbon & Brads . . . OR . . . Ribbon & Eyelets?

fun challenge, I know you aren't going to believe this, but I don't think I have any engine stuff......I have hot air balloons....a motorcycle with a girl on it....I will look to make sure. I do need more manly stuff, I put flowers, hearts, and flourishes on dh's cards....lol. I like being able to pick from the menu, makes it fun! thanks Wendy *~*

Cool challenge friendy Wendy (and Karen too). Will have to see if my kiddos let me have time to play along.

Cook22 06-26-2009 03:13 AM

What about the hardware that needs an eyelet or brad to attach it? Is that out? Like photo turns and those little clip things...

designlady 06-26-2009 04:24 AM

Oooh, I love Chinese take out! Hope I get a chance to play later. But the housework beckons (as guests arrive at in 6 hours).

KY Southern Belle 06-26-2009 04:31 AM

Out in The Wild...Chinese Takeout for two!!
You were right, Wendy, the embellishment front was certainly where the restrictions kicked in for me.

Lois, I can answer this for Wendy. It is ribbon and brads OR ribbon and eyelets. Of course, you could probably use your creatives license anyway you read it and be just fine. lol Jump in!

The choice is ribbon & brads . . . OR ribbon & eyelets!! I was trying to make that clear, but apparently not as clear as I thought!
