Yes! I have all eight Unity World Card Making Day challenges completed!
Challenge #1: Shaped Cards was a bit of a stretch for me, just because I don't generally make a lot of shaped cards. But eventually I came up with this casket-shaped Halloween card (that won out over a headstone shape). The base is grey cardstock with sponged edges, with several images from the Unity/Echo Park set Fright Night. While I could have stamped and cut out the bats, I went with a punch instead. :D The spooky silhouette tree is inspired both by the current Simon Says Stamp challenge (the bottom right picture) and my friend Jen's awesome Halloween card.
I saved what is for me the easiest challenge for last:
Challenge #3: Embossing is a no-brainer for me. In fact, I think Unity had me in mind when they said challenges couldn't be combined, since just about every card I make has embossing! This one has clear and white embossing, as well as some colouring. Of course there's also stickles on his hat, liquid pearls on his nose and glossy accents on his patchwork heart.
But wait, there's more! I'm going to try to meet the extra hurdle of completing Unity's two regular challenges. You'll just have to check back before Sunday to see if I manage this extra feat. :D
