The Challenge 13-You Rock

We're back with another edition of The Challenge!  Once again, we're giving you two different options for playing along--a sketch and a color combination.  I combined the sketch and color palette to come up with this simple, bold design.

You Rock card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery Elle
My card uses two Avery Elle stamp sets--Many Thanks and We Go Together.  My focal image is the gem from Many Thanks.  I stamped it on gray cardstock, then coated it with glitter from a silver Wink of Stella pen to give it a shimmery look.  It's adhered to a white panel using a dimensional dot.

I did a little selective inking to stamp the large "you" from one of the sentiments in the Many Thanks set underneath the gem.  The word "rock" came from the We Go Together set.  I like the contrast of the two different text sizes here.  I matted the panel on navy cardstock to match the sentiment's navy ink, then adhered the panel to an aqua card base.

Don't miss what the rest of the amazing challenge team has created to inspire you!  Here's where to find them:
