Your result for The Commonly Confused Words Test ...
You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 87% Expert!
You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!
Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!
The weird thing is that I only missed one of the expert questions, and it scored me at 87%. I should have received 92% if I only missed one. Oh well.
I challenge everyone to also take the quiz and post your results. Here is the link

And here is my take on the sketch. I had to use a flower on the card because I don't have an oval punch or nestabilities.

The first card I made was using Taken with Teal, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip/Close to Cocoa. I have an entire pack of Taken with Teal paper that I bought probably 8 months ago, and I never opened it until today. Once I got it, I didn't know which colors I wanted to use with it, so I never used it. So, here is the baby card I made with this color combo. Also, I decided since I hadn't made a pocket card in a while, that I would make this baby card, pocket style.
The next color combination I decided to try was Elegant Eggplant (sorry Beate, I know you're not a fan of purple), Summer Sun and Old Olive. As I was going through the huge list of color combos, I realized that I haven't used Elegant Eggplant since I was making Christmas cards, so I was looking for color combos so that I could use it more often, all year long. I also tried a new technique that Beate had on SplitCoastStampers for this card. I used the chalkboard technique. It was fun using this technique because I had to dig out my stampin' pastels (which I hadn't used in who knows how long). I had fun making both of these cards, I can't wait to make some more of the cards with the other color combos on my list.

Here is the card I made for the challenge. It wasn't too difficult because I didn't stamp a whole lot and I didn't have to color anything.

After I made the first card, I just seemed to be in a card making mood. And I have been wanting to use the Old Glory stamp set ever since I got it for Christmas. But it never seemed right because it never seemed to fit with the holiday. Since Memorial Day is just next month I decided to go ahead and make a patriotic card. I really like how this card turned out.

And here is the card that I made using the sketch. I enjoyed this sketch and tried the sponging for the first time. I hope they like the anniversary card.

Stamp Set: Greetings Galore
Paper: Whisper White CS, Purely Pomegranate CS, Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper, Candy Shop Designer Paper (Martha Stewart)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Light Pink Gingham Ribbon, Flower Accents, Brad, Stampin' Dimensionals
And of course, I used my Spring Fling Designer Paper and I used my paper piercer for the first time. I also used my new flower brads. The flower brad goes great with this DSP. I like the card, but it did take a while to make because of all the coloring. But it just wouldn't have looked right without the coloring.
