Two Challenges In One

I don't think I've ever made a card incorporating two challenges before. For this card, I combined Embellish Magazine's Color and Embossing Challenge with Our Creative Corner's Weekly Sketch Challenge.

For the color challenge you had to use either dry or heat embossing. I used the D'vine Swirls embossing folder by Cuttlebug for the embossing on the Coredinations cardstock and then sanded it.

I also took a small paper doily and inked it with Stampin' Up Yo Yo Yellow ink. Then I used a Nestabilities circle die to cut it smaller so just the edges peek out from under the blue circle that was also cut using a circle die.
