Technique Tuesday, Try Stampin' on a Tuesday & The Colour Throwdown

TGIF! Going to be a fantastic weekend for The Kews. Tonight I have my first Stampers Club of 2013 (I have missed you ladies!!!) and then tomorrow I am going to a local Stampin' UP! event our Annual Sale a Bration Smackdown, 6 hours of pure (uninterruptedcrafting bliss!!! And then on Sunday we are having a belated Christmas dinner with our nieces (and brother/sister in law hehe). 

So for this card I used the sketch from Try Stampin' on a Tuesday, the colour theme from The Colour Throwdown and the Technique challenge from Technique Tuesday. I have never tried a 3D Pedestal Pop Up Card before so this was a lot of fun! 

My Challenges:

My Card:

I have been working on this card for a few days now, as you can see it was quite involved. It is so funny how long it takes to get a project done now with two kiddos around. Wouldn't change it for the world but I can tell ya mama is looking forward to Saturday hehe.  

Take the time to let your creativity bloom!
