Thursday (er--WEDNESDAY) Dream Schemes

So, this week, Dreamweaver is sponsoring the Cardabilities Challenge. Instead of our normal Thursday Posting, therefore, we were told we could play along with their sketch, seen below, and our colorway--turquoise, dark brown/craft brown or neutral. Now, at first, I was inclined to just finish my planned turquoise challenge AND the Cardabilites Challenge. Then, of course, I got caught up with CHA stuff and a really icky cold, and, well, I am hoping that my Dream Teammates will accept this slight stretch in colors--dark turquoise, tan and neutral. I promise I will post my turquoise and brown next week, during the free theme week.

So, here is the Cardabilities sketch. It was really easy to use and came together quite well. I suggest that if you have the time today, you make a quick card to enter on You could win one of three different gift certificates: $25, $15 or $10. Although the Dream Team is playing along, we aren't eligible to win. :(

Anyway, here is my take on it.

You see what I mean about the colors? The dark brown around the outside is not actually part of the card, but is the background on which I shot the photo.

As for what I did, I used the Pearlescent Paste with the Thinking of You stencil. Then, I ran the small sand dollar and the starfish through my Cuttlebug with Co'oredinations paper. I sanded the embossed paper lightly to create the beautiful soft effect. I cut them out and assembled the card. Simple, see?
