What's the Scoop?

Some Odd Girl's Anniversary Week of challenges is almost over!  All projects have to be entered by midnight tonight! Not one to want to miss out on all the fun, I put together my final two entries.
The first on this post is for the "1 image 3 ways" challenge.  I used the
"3 Scoops" ice cream cone image. I used the larger version to paper piece and pop up as my main focal point, ran a row of tiny images across one strip to make a patterned paper, and applied the third to an envelope to match the card. Quick little project, but I can use it to send any number of sentiments.

And because I will miss them, I entered this card on "The Altered Alice", the NEW blog replacement for  "Oh, Alice". It looks to be just as inspiring as the old "Alice" challenges!

My second post is for the "Odd Elements" challenge which consisted of picking at least 3 from a list:
I chose to use 4 of the elements -
Ink, (my Copics on the digi image, "Coffe Mae"); Organza Ribbon; Die Cuts, Nestabilities "Blossom" and "Deckled Rectangle"; and Embossing with Cuttlebug, "Numbers". 
I made this for a friend who is coming from Iowa out to Phoenix in April for a vacation to see the Grand Canyon! Can't wait!

For this card I used this Cardibilities Sketch !
It was, as always, great fun to work with the images! And I managed to get some scrapping done between weekend chores and the football games!
Have a good one!
