Viva Las Vegas - VSN style!!!

Hello all!!! Well, I didn't get to pre-posting some items like I wanted, but I will try again this week-end!!

Today on SCS, they are hosting a mini-VSN to get our juices pumped for the main event in May!! You can click on the link and go right to the main challenge forum! But hurry, as you only have until Monday, 4/27 @ 10 pm to get your entries posted!! They're giving prizes!!

This is my first card I made for the "Bellie Up to the Buffet" challenge. This was hosted by Jenn Balcer and Lori Craig last night.

I also combined this with the LateNightStampers sketch challenge this week and CC215 on SCS: Basic Rose Pirouttes.

Now the challenge for this event was to use as many embellies as you wanted!!! No problem for me, seem to use alot anyway!! But, it was a little more difficult than I expected. I kept wanting to use so many things, and yet I had to stop because my card was getting really tacky!
I used the new dsp, Walk in the Park, Basic Gray corduroy brads and the white satin ribbon (all in the Occasions Mini), Button Bouquet and Fresh Fav. II buttons. I also used my Beautiful Butterflies and Billboard alpha die (for the bracket). The Pink Pirouette dsp in the bottom portion and then the PP gg finishes it off.

Now with VSN challenges, you only have 45 minutes to finish and this took me 30 minutes to assemble and complete, UNTIL I got to the corduroy brad!!! It took me almost 15 minutes of fiddling around with that to get it to cooperate!!

You can see on the inside, I put a strip of the Pink Pirouette and Walk in the Park dsp, along with a new toy I just received today: Simple Flower embosslit!!!!!! My Stampin' Sis through UDI sent me this and a jam packed box of wonderful goodies!!! Thanks Kay!!

If you have time, head on over to SCS and try your hand at VSN!!

Happy Stamping!!!!
