World Card Making Day Challenge Hippity Hop Style!

Happy Hippity  Hop!!



Not only is today special because it is a Hippity Hop Monday, it is also special because it is my turn to host a challenge for SCS's Hope You Can Cling to Challenge!!

All month long, SCS is hosting challenges for Breast Cancer awareness!!  We hope you will participate each day  in all the challenges!! It is going to be so much fun!!!

I have combined two challenges for my card today.

 The first one is Lisa Henke's 
Hippity Hop Challenge IHHC44 
called OCT
 She wants us to use something "old", "crinkled" and some "twine!"  

But it also qualifies for my challenge for the 
Hope You Can Cling To Challenge  
HYCCT04

Since my challenge falls on the fourth of the month, and is the fourth challenge, I am challenging you to use four layers of paper on your card AND to use four different embellishments as well!!

Here is my sample card...





Here is how I met each of the challenge requirements for this card...

OCT:  IHHC44
Old;  I used the "Thoughts from the Past stamp set
Crinkled:  I crinkled the Kraft paper that I used an emphasized the crinkled areas with ink!
Twine:  I added some dark brown twine from Jillibean


HYCCT04  Hope You Can Cling to- Four by Four

Four layers:  cream card base,Kraft cardstock, PP, and stamped image of the post card

The Ippity stamp sets used for this card are the following....

All that, Kelly, and you still have time to make cards - very impressive. I know the triathlon(?) is in less than two weeks, and you're busy training for it, but it also occurs to me that we havent spoken since your July Fourth party, and that's a long time and much water under the bridges. If you have time to get together, give me a call & we'll have lunch and get caught up.
