Silhouette Cameo meets Authentique Paper

Yes I know it is only the end of August and she has made a card for 2013.  I know what you are saying - she won't even know where this card is when it gets time to put it in the mail.  Well - I promise to try my hardest not to bury it.

I combined two challenges for this card.  There is a new blog challenge on the block - it is for the Silhouette - I have had mine since the end of last year and need to use it more so I was excited to see this challenge site.  I did not get the first challenge made but hope to do each one from now on - it helps that they are two weeks long.  The current challenge is to use numbers.  Now I have a jump start on the new year.  I thought the addition of the sticker from SRM Stickers was a fun idea - Hello 2013.

The second challenge is the color challenge on the Authentique paper blog.

The challenge is to use yellow, teal and navy blue - of course - they have much cooler color names than that. I just bought a new 6 x 6 pad last week end and it had the perfect papers for this challenge - I used the paper collection - Curiosity.  If you have not had the pleasure of using Authentique paper - pick some up - it has beautiful weight to it.  It is double sided and the back side is a solid that coordinates with the papers in the collection.

Everyone have a wonderful day.  Looking forward to a three day week end - although I may go to work one day - it will be quiet and I will get lots done.
