A Challenge or Two.....plus a Sneak Peek!

I am in full Challenge mode right now! With the Helping Hudson event Challenges beginning tonight, I decided to have a go but combined it with the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge!

I am quite happy with how this turned out actually considering it started off very simply.
I like hemp twine on male cards but decided a little braiding might add a bit of a different touch :)

Plus, if you are observant you will notice I have used a set that isn't in the current catalogue........ a Sneak Peek perhaps????!!

Stamp Set: Perfect Punches (Sneak Peek)
Cardstock & Ink: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Kraft, Baja Breeze Patterns DSP, Chocolate Chip Ink
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Wide Grosgrain, Scallop Edge Punch, Hemp Twine, Lots of Tags (Sizzix Die), Wide Oval Punch

Hope you like it, I am hoping to complete the other two Helping Hudson Challenges tomorrow so keep an eye out :)

Your plaited twine is such a nice touch. Very clever for a guys card...since ribbon just doesn't always cut it.

Love that sneak peek, and how you made the panels a background rather than a feature!
