EDIT: 5 not QUAD CHALLENGE CARD--bling at the movies, LOL

OK, so I am going to share a card out of my comfort zone...the colors, and the theme of going to the movies (not necessarily my comfort zone, just not something I usually think of when I make a card)

This card fulfills 4...nope 5 challenges: Friday Sketchers (on side bar)--Simon says challenge blog (on side bar)--Basic Grey challenge blog (on side bar)--Practical Scrappers (on blog roll)-- The Cuttlebug Spot (now on bottombar)

The challenges: Fridays sketchers--pretty obvious---the sketch(designed for a square card-but since this card is for OWH, I made it A2 size)
                                         Simon Says-- "At the Movies" and "dry embossing"...I did "Pirates of the Caribbean"  I used my tiny bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder on the white paper (skulls and cross bones--just around edges after I inked it) and on the denim paper (hard to see in any picture) & for extra FUN I also used POPCORN paper :)
                                        Basic Grey--Color challenge #5--Blue, Gold, & White
                                        Practical Scrappers--bling/glitter/shine...I used mini jewels, glitter brads, and on the Skull & Cross bones-Diamond Glaze. The Cuttlebug Spot---same...bling

Stamps: "Pirates for Hire"--Stampfrancisco, Sentiment--Stampin' Up
Ink: Cat's eye fluid chalk--Blue Iris, Stampin' Up--Crushed Curry
Card stock: Stampin' Up (Morning Marigold, I think, LOL), Georgia Pacific White
Printed papers: all older...I think most are Provo craft--Blue Gingham, Indigo Denim, Popcorn
Glitter Brads by American Crafts (earth tones pack)
Jewels-old and unknown
Judikins--Diamond Glaze
Cuttlebug Embossing folder--Tiny Bubbles

I Hope you like it :)  chat with you later on another post, hope you are all enjoying your Sunday!
