Challenge # 1 -
I come across a Colour Challenge over at http://stampinwithstacey.blogspot.com/ which ask for the colours Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip & Certainly Celery to be used. 

Challenge # 2 -
Putting my thinking cap on, I then needed a layout, which brings me to the Sketch Challenge at http://technostamper.blogspot.com/  Mary Jo always has great challenges.

Seeing Masry Jo's sketch, I knew I wanted to create a male's card & the first stamp set which sprung to mind was "Circle Circus".  An oldie, but a goodie.

Challenge # 3 -
Not to be outdone, my Yahoo Group is celebrating 100 challenges.  The theme being "CELEBRATING".  The mind is full of options.

To complete my card, I embossed the Chocolate Chip Cardstock using the Bigshot & Perfect Polka Dots

For the middle of the card, I used the Technique - Faux Tiles.  To see how this technique is done, please look under Techniques on the RHS of the bar.

I then stamped my images over the top of the technique.  I adhered this piece to Real Red.  Adhering Grosgrain 5/8" Ribbon - Certainly Celery across the middle, I attached the whole lot to Old Olive Cardstock.

I stamped the greeting from the stamp set Well Scripted, punched it out using the Extra Large Oval punch & wiped the edge through Chocolate Chip ink.  I then adhered this to the middle of the rribbon using SU Dimensionals.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Circle Circus, Well Scripted
Ink - Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
Cardstock - Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Punches - Extra-Large Oval
Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots
