I hope you like this tutorial. The format this is in is the same format as the tutorials on the Technique Junkie CDs. If you haven't ordered your copy of CD8 -- 100 tutorials just like this one -- please email me for ordering information.
My card was created with the colors from the challenge, and of course it uses a multitude of techniques. The Southwestern Images (I Brake for Stamps) are done using the Pencil over Ink Technique from the February 2005 issue of the Newsletter. The orange brick background uses the Acrylic Emboss Technique from the August 2010 issue, and, of course, the piece uses The Clipped Corners Technique, above. The verse is from Club Scrap.
