lucky me - The Play Date Cafe Challenge #119

It's a bright sunny Sunday, worship service was great...and I'm posting a card!  I made this card late yesterday, but couldn't get a good photo without sunlight.  So, I'm doing this short post before I start making lunch :)

I'm playing along in the Play Date Cafe Challenge #119.  It's one of their fun color splash challenges.  Take a look:
Black and white with just a splash of hot pink.  I really had to dig through my older stash of card stock to find a hot pink.  It's not a color that I use often.  In fact, seldom!  But I love the color splash challenges, so I pushed myself out of my comfort zone.  I need that "push" sometimes. lol

This is what I created.

 I used my splash of hot pink behind this die-cut work "lucky".  I popped that panel up on dimensional adhesive.  I used white embossing powder for the word "me".  This was such an easy card to create...except for attaching those tiny pieces of cs inside the l, k & y.  Yikes. Not so easy cutting those slivers of dimensional adhesive, then using tweezers to place the pieces.  It was a challenge....pun intended (but lame :) )
Thanks for looking!

What's in it?
card stock: basic black, whisper white, pink passion ? (SU)
stamp: wonderful words additions (PTI)
ink: versamark
die: wonderful words (PTI)
other: winter white embossing powder (SU), heat tool, dimensional adhesive, anti-static bag


  1. Fabulous card Susie! LOVE your funky colour splash, such a fun sentiment!

  2. Susie, this is so neat! I like the die cut word, with the hot pink splash behind it. Tweezers are definitely a crafter's best friend, aren't they? ;)
    Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe!

  3. I totally understand that push, Susie! I lean more towards the softer side of pink, but you rocked this splash! Your design is brilliant! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

  4. wooow... gorgeous card! I love it, love the cut out word! Stunning.

    Have a blessed day!

  5. Such a great card! It almost looks as if it's a neon sign, love it! Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at The Play Date Cafe!
