Hi! This is a double challenge card. 1st challenge is today`s Color Challenge which was to use Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, Neutrals and the dessert option was wood. Read about it here.
CC270 Challenge

I thought my embossed bg resembled wood paneling. The 2nd challenge is Teaparty Tuesday. Read about it here.
MMTPT93 Challenge
We are off to the Bat Cave and I brought along these poppies to pretty it up and have it smell good.I stamped this Hero Arts image with HA Chalk Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I then stamped with brown Memento Ink on white cs and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol then cut the blooms out and popped them up. The inside has SU DP and I used a SU Border Punch. I tied twine around my main panel. The envelope is stamped with another poppy from HA. I got this idea from the HA blog. Thanks for looking and have a fabulous day! It is dark and dreary here today (although I am not complaining as we need rain) but it made it very difficult to photograph. That is why I have included 2 photos. One is too dark ...the other too light! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like it!
