Core`dinations Journal Challenge plus a New Technique!! =)

Hello!! Today I was playing around with my FABULOUS Core`dinations Cardstock!! =)
They posted a challenge this month and I just had to play along!!
It’s June 1st. Let’s kick of this month with a fun CHALLENGE!
What do you think?
We just loved this technique that Melissa Oliveira shared with us yesterday on the blog that we wanted to extend the invitation to try it to YOU!
Journaling is such an important part of a scrapbookers journey to preserve memories and tell stories.
SO for this challenge….we want to see your Journaling. It doesn’t have to be this specific technique…you can journal any way you choose.
But  for this challenge there are a few things you must do:
2.) Use Core’dinations Cardstock (it must be a visible component of the layout).
3.)  Link your project to THIS blog post or post it on our Facebook page. Make sure you “like” us, too!
4.) Show off a cool Core technique and we will throw in an additional chance to win!
The rest is up to you!
And how could I forget??? Of Course a random Winner will win some CORE’DINATIONS CARDSTOCK!
Here is a layout from Melissa Oliveira to get you inspired on the many ways you can journal on your Core.  The possibilities are endless and we can’t wait to see what you can do! For this layout she sanded where she journaled AND scored her journal lines. Brilliant!!!
Deadline for this challenge is two weeks…June 15th by midnight PST.
So I decided to make a card!! I needed to send one to a friend and this was a perfect challenge!!
I also tried a NEW technique~I covered the doily piece of coredinations cardstock that I cut from the new Basicgrey Ornate paper with Tattered Angels Glitter Glam in Pink Lipstick. I then took the coredinations sander block and sanded off the raised doily image!! I LOVE the way it looks!! =)  I have never seen this done and I wondered how it would work!! I will be tring this again and again!! =)
I then added the 31/2 inch circle of turquoise blue cut from the New Fancy Pants Designs Refreshed Collection, them layered that on a crate paper sizzix die cut doily!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! I then added the cute greeting sticker from Create Paper and the button from Girl's Paperie!! The base of my card is also a piece of coredinations cardstock from the Basicgrey Ornate paper. LOVE IT!! Then I used the cloud corner punch from We-R-Memory Makers. I then added a half circle doily on the inside of the card and made a cute journaling area for the inside of my card!! LOVE it and I can't wait to hear from my friend when she gets it in the mail!! =)
Here are the photos THANKS for stopping by!! Have a FABULOUS DAY!! =)
