VSN Day 1, A Summary

There were 5 challenges tonight.  Hopefully, you got to play in some.  Here are the rest of my cards for tonight's challenges.  Scroll down for the first one. {Warning - Long Post, but lots of fun!}
Ashley challenged us to use our wedding song to create our card.  My wedding song made me think of my wedding colors, which were black, ivory, and silver.  But I didn't want to make a wedding card, so I flipped it a bit to make a non-traditionally colored baby card.  Friends of ours are having a baby and don't want to find out the sex of the baby.  You can't tell me pink or blue, you're getting black and white!

For the next challenge, Misty challenged us to use a bird on our card.  Here's my bird poem...
Roses are Red
Birds are Blue
That's the way I color
What's it to you?
Seriously, I have the HARDEST time coloring a bird anything but blue... maybe there's a support group I could join?

Paula has told us to use at least 2 techniques on this next card.  So, I did a bunch hoping that at least 2 would be "real" enough to pass... I used Faux Tearing, Creating a Beach Scene with Sponging/Masking, Masking, Stamping with Markers, Masking with Markers, and One Layer Card.

Ink: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight Soft Suede by SU

Challenges Used: FEB11VSND

This next challenge is very near and dear to my heart because it supports the fight against heart disease, particular the types that affect women.  As many of you know, I suffer from leaking valves in my heart and high blood pressure and go annually for an echo.  I would LOVE for others not to have to deal with this as I do.  The Heart Truth Campaign is striving to raise awareness of women's heart disease, and their symbol is a red dress, so Michelle has challenged us to make a project with a red dress.  I went completely digital for mine, with everything made by My Time Made Easy.  I colored the girl in PSE, added the digi paper and created the box for the sentiment.  Then I printed it out and mounted it on a Soft Suede card.
Tomorrow is the BIG TAMALE for VSN with 11 adult challenges + 1 kids challenge.  I have a challenge for this round tomorrow, so be sure to come check us out!  See you tomorrow!
