Take 3 and Faux Postage Challenges

This week Mandi and Chrissie over at Less is More have given us a recipe challenge as follows
Take 3 Challenges
We want you to choose 3 from any of our previous 29 and combine them in your design.
I am also going to enter this into the challenge over at Rainbow Lady where Chocolate Baroque are sponsoring a Faux Postage challenge.

Now giving us a challenge is fine but expecting us to choose three out of the last 29 challenges goes a bit far!!!  lol  For my card I have chosen Week 4 Three Squares, Week 15 Embossing and Week 19 In the Frame.
I've taken an A5 card blank and stamped my Judikins Square Postage Frame.  I then masked off the outside, punched a circle for the sun/moon and then brayered using Big & Juicy Foliage.  I removed the punched circle and then moved onto the other two postage frames in turn.  I then inked up my Judikins African Safari cube stamp and stamped an image inside each of the frames.  To finish the card off I used my Hougie Board to add some embossed lines.

Thanks for dropping in.
