Triple Threat!! CPS279, Touch Challlenge 23-Good Eats and TSOL

Hey Everybody!!! Hope all is well in your world. Still plugging away here. Dealing with some health issues and this week i'm studying for my final exam for my summer course. Will be glad to have that over with, then I can say ONE down, SEVEN to go! If I can focus, I'll be sharing the fact that I will soon be graduating, right about this time next year! YAY~~~

So I'm killing a few birds with one stone here. I LOVE how this card turned out! I wasn't sure if it would work with this weeks CPS sketch, but I managed to be able to combine the Touch Twin "Good Eats" challenge with this weeks CPS sketch, which just happens to be be sponsored by The {Stamps} of Life, who have just released these brand spanking new Wavy Border Dies today!

I coloured my Cake image  fairly simply with just a few marker colours! Here is the colour map for your perusal. I really like how the Florescent Yellow combined with the Florescent  Green make the cake plate POP!!!! I needed something to pop off the paper, since I played with a lot of fun patterns. In addition to using the wavy dies as both vertical and horizontal borders, I also cut the bottom of the card to have a wavy edge! I think this card looks fun and fresh!

Be sure to visit the Touch Blog and the CPS Blog to join us in this weeks challenges!

Happy Stamping!
