Papertrey Make It Monday Challenge #228 and Splitcoaststampers Card Sketch SC564

This is the first time I ever combined two different challenges into one card. 

I used the card sketch from this Wednesday's Splitcoaststampers (SC564) and used the technique from the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday (228) - Pearlized Blending. 

Unfortunately, the photo doesn't really show how the center circle is shiny and the pearl ex I chose to use seems to have covered up the ink shading.  The technique showed a clear pearl ex (I did not have this color).

Papertrey Make It Monday #227- Focal Clusters

I loved this week's challenge. I wish I had the die cuts for this set (backordered) to give the card more dimension.I pulled out some eyelets - haven't used them in a long time. Have they gone into stamping history?

I also like the idea of taking out a few stamp sets and seeing how they can cluster together.

Make It Monday #226: Creating With Stripes

I have been enjoying the idea of coloring the reverse side of embossed vellum - so I did the same on this card.  It did not work out exactly how it had on other cards using the same techniques.  I think it is because there wasn't much clear space left after embossing the super stripes stamp.  In the end I colored in the back and the front of the embossed vellum to achieve more color.
