Two More VSN Challenges

As promised, here are a couple more cards for VSN challenges. (And yes, the pool table and bar are set up and ready to go!)
The first one is the 2nd challenge posted, which asks what kind of chocolate you are. I'm Dark Chocolate, and that dictated my color scheme: Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal, and Cameo Coral. I kept this simple, as it will be in the mail on Monday to my husband, who is deployed for the Army. We both LOVE coffee.

Stamp Sets: What's Brewin' (oldie but greatie!), Yummy (new SAB set)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal, Very Vanilla, Apricot Appeal Prints DSP
Accessories: Crystal Effects, Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon, Cameo Coral Stampin' Write marker
I don't know if you can see it, but there are little drops of crystal effects on the top left above the ribbon, and the bottom right. I also added it to the inside of the cup to look like coffee... now I want some coffee!
The next card is the for the 4th challenge that was posted. This challenge told you to use NEW STUFF... uh, hello! I just got an order like a few days ago! Of course I had to skip the use a stamp set you don't really like challenge to use NEW STUFF!!!!!Stamp Sets: Simple Friendship, Sweet Little Sentiments (hostess set)
Ink: Basic Gray, VersaMark
Paper: So Saffron (base), Ballet Blue (flower), Pink Flamingo DSP, Garden Green Prints DSP
Accessories: Filigree brad, Stampin' Dimensionals, Gelly Roll Silver pen, Gelly Roll Stardust pen
Punch: 5-Petal Flower
Big Shot: Simple Flower Embosslit die
The only products that I had used before this challenge were the solid cardstock, ink, and 5-Petal Flower punch. I'd used the Gelly Roll pens before, but not THOSE pens... they were brand new. That was SO much fun! But, it was SO HARD to choose which products to use... good thing there are a TON more challenges to use them in. :)
Well, I'm off to lie down some more... more stamping to come tomorrow (doubt I'm going to have the energy to do more tonight)... I have to crank out 16 more challenges. This bug is NOT nice!
