My First Demo Challenge WICKED!

Well I took the plunge and entered my first SCS Stampin Up! Demo Challenge...the WICKED challenge. Now when we were stationed at FT. Drum I despised the word wicked cause EVERYONE up there used that word....Ohh...thats wicked cool, uuugh I can't tell you how many times I've heard that and it made shivers go down my spine each and every time. But I'm sure I have slangs that drive everyone nuts when I say "shut up" to something in disbelief.

Anyways, back to the challenge. So rather than Wicked being an annoying slag term it is an acronym for Wonderfully Inspiring Challenges Keep Educating, I can deal with that!

So there are three parts to this challenge, a color combo, a sketch, and a technique. Since I didn't have all four colors for the color combo I have to wait on that part. I did use two of the four colors, Perfect Plum and So Saffron, and on this card I used the Fresh Cuts stamp set.

I stamped the images with Perfect Plum, and cut the flowers out and adhered them with dimentionals. The accents were embossed with iridescent ice. I sponged around the sentiment. Nothing hard, and I like how it came out. It was a bit out of the box for me, but it was definitely fun, and I can't wait to do more challenges now!
