I'm a Believer! Fab Friday 22 Color Challenge

Hi Stampers!

Here's something I haven't done for a while - a blog challenge!  My online friends & fellow demonstrators Mindy Backes & crew, over on the Fab Friday Challenge Blog, have given us a color combo to work with this time.  Since "bold & bright" isn't usually my thing, I thought this would be a great way to kick up the mojo & see what I could do.

For this card, I pulled out all the stops and really tried to grunge it up:

Lots of stuff going on here:  sponging, distressing, stamping, embossing, bling, clay flowers . . . you get the idea.

Here's the color combo they gave us to work with:

Card Recipe:
Ink:  Black Craft, Stazon Black, Basic Gray
Cardstock:  Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red
Stamps:  Feel Goods, Gorgeous Grunge, Flowering Flourishes
Accessories:  Sponge, Distressing Tool, Basic Rhinestones, Large Rhinestones, Big Shot, Tulip Frame embossing folder, Black Stamp 'n Emboss Powder, Simply Pressed Clay & Molds, Dotted Ribbon (retired)
I love the saying on this one, "She Believed She Could, So She Did".  Isn't that the truth?  What dreams do YOU have, my friend?  Well, start believing and make 'em happen!!

Uh oh - you knew it was coming.  This cues up a song, right?  RIGHT!!  Love the Monkees' original, but let's do the Shrek version by Smashmouth:

Now, aside from my mom, who leaves me comments pretty frequently (thanks, Mom!!), I'd LOVE to hear what you think about this card, or my blog in general :-)
Happy stampin'!
